Tony Allison Perolio, 68, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past five years, formerly of West Palm Beach, FL and West Virginia, passed away Wednesday, April 17, 2019. He was born November 23, 1950 in Beaumont, TX to Richard Perolio and Patsy Ann Bare, now deceased (2018).
Tony spent his childhood in Charleston, WV; living with his Mother and her husband Gary Goff (who proceeded him in death in 2016).
He was a graduate of Stonewall Jackson High School class of 1968. After he completed his education he was employed in the marine industry in Mississippi and South Florida for over 35 years. Boats and the sea were in his blood. He was an accomplished Marine Mechanic and loved everything about the water. He also loved his motorcycles and the freedom that they afforded him.
Tony loved life and enjoyed living against the grain. His outlook was remarkably positive and he expressed joy in the process of growing older. He was not one to complain about the trials of life or circumstance. He was extremely loving to his family and he reveled in the opportunity to provide his Mother with care in her final years. He especially loved his special friend Irene, who shared his life’s joy and sadness prior to his passing.
He is survived by his loving brother, Richard Perolio II of Loxahatchee, FL; and by his loving son and daughter-in-law Michael and Angel Perolio of the US Air Force; as well as four grandsons, Justin, Ryan, Maximo, and Dominic.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
