On June 11, 1982, he married his next-door neighbor and childhood sweetheart Jacqueline J. Bernard Perine, who survives. Together, they made a wonderful legacy of children and grandchildren.
Surviving are his four children, Adam T. Perine and his wife Tara of Bridgeport, Andrew S. Perine and his wife Sarah of Shinnston, Allison J. Satterfield and her husband Ryan of Meadowbrook, and Alana B. Hoskinson and her husband Alex of Bridgeport. “Pop Pop,” as they called him, leaves behind eleven grandchildren whom he adored: Maddox, Rush, Easton, Willow, Benton, Adley, Winter, Violet, Emme, Eli, and Quinn.
Tim came from a close family of siblings, Robert G. Perine and his wife Janey of Harrisville, Jeffrey A. Perine and his wife Julie of Bridgeport, and Beth A. Wilmoth and her husband Dave of Bridgeport.
He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Alice J. Bernard Gissy of Bridgeport, his brothers-in-law, Mark A. Bernard and his wife Angie of Dayton, PA, John H. Gissy and his wife Song and Shawn M. Gissy, all of Nevada, many nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Tim was preceded in death by his grandparents, whom he missed dearly and recently told his family he couldn’t wait to see, Forest E. “Tom” and Florence Perine and Ira Earl and Oma Pearl McCarty, and his fathers-in-law, Jack L. Bernard and John F. Gissy.
Tim was a 1980 graduate of Bridgeport High School. He attended Fairmont State College and, in 1985, graduated from the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science. He was a funeral director in Shinnston and the surrounding communities for over 35 years, and in 2005, he founded the Perine Funeral Home. He served thousands of families in the community and was very proud of that legacy.
He used his God-given musical talents to serve several local churches over the years as well as a life-long dedication to the Judson Baptist Camp. He was most recently a member of Ten Mile Baptist Church in Dola where he served as the church pianist and comic relief. He was generous to a fault and helped many people when they needed it. He loved to go to his fishing camp in Braxton County and would spend as much time there as he could. He loved all of his family and was the best husband, father, son, brother, and “Pop Pop” to his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed until we all meet again.
The family will receive friends at the Perine Funeral Home, 1348 S. Pike St., Shinnston, from Noon until 8pm on Wednesday, February 10. A funeral service will be held at Jewel City Church, 511 Jewel City, Blvd, Meadowbrook, at 11am on Thursday, February 11, with his brothers, Pastor Robert G. Perine and Pastor Jeffrey A. Perine, officiating. Interment will be in the Bridgeport Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Judson Baptist Camp to cover the cost of sending children to church camp.
