Joseph Perrins
December 7, 2010

Joseph Perrins, 88, of Dupont, passed away Tuesday, December 7, 2010, at his home. He was born in Plains Township January 31, 1922, and was a son of the late George and Isabel (Griffiths) Perrins.

Joseph was a member of St. John's Primitive Methodist Church, Avoca, and he attended Plains Township area schools.

Throughout his life, Joe worked for various area mining companies, and retired from the Consolidated Cigar Co., West Pittston.

A comical character, those who knew Joe could always count on being touched in some memorable way by his wit.

He loved gardening and animals and had a particular affinity for squirrels. His good nature and charm are qualities that will be missed and held dear by all who knew and loved him.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brothers, George, Arthur, Phillip, and Russell Perrins; and his sisters, Elizabeth Francis, Sarah Bisbing, and Eleanor Perrins.

Joseph is survived by his siblings, Samuel Perrins of Duryea, Pearl Bryk of Dupont, Ruth Gattuso of Yatesville, Robert Perrins of Duryea, and Paul Perrins of Dupont. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Kiesinger Funeral Services, Duryea, with the Rev. Richard Rock of St. John's Primitive Methodist Church officiating services.

Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday evening.

Interment will be held at the Marcy Cemetery, Duryea.
