BELFAST — Eugene W. “Geno” Perry passed peacefully Dec. 19, 2022, at the Sussman House at the age of 79.
The son of the late Elizabeth A. Wheeler and Fred A. Perry, Eugene was known for his outgoing personality, dry wit, kindness, willingness to help a friend and work ethic.
A lifetime member of the Improved Order of Redman Tarratine Tribe 13, Eugene enjoyed fishing, hunting, stopping by the garage and visiting with and checking on family and friends. Eugene spent his early years trimming trees with Lucas Tree and in manufacturing before becoming a well-respected roofer, painter and handyman within the Belfast community. Eugene worked on many projects over the years, including the VFW roof painting the letters, the Opera House, and countless others. Eugene loved the people he had met the most and would tell of the projects, the folks gone on and how Belfast had changed.
Eugene is survived by three children: Richard W. Perry of Vassalboro, Joseph W. Perry of Belfast and daughter Carla Jean of Georgia. He is also survived by Corrine Lawson of Old Town, multiple grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many beloved friends.
Due to the season, burial services will be announced and held in the spring at Pine Grove Cemetery in Hartland.
