Carroll Tyrone Perrin, a native of Gloucester County, age 62, passed away peacefully at his home in Richmond Tuesday, October 2, 2018. Carroll was an avid Washington Redskins fan. His daughters described their Dad as a man of integrity and compassion to his core. A real source of strength and perseverance will be his legacy. While he will be missed here, he has been greeted in Heaven with a joyful and long–awaited reunion of family and friends. Once Carroll graduated high school he went on to pursue a career with the military. While stationed in Panama he met Silvia Moreno and they were married in Fort Hood Texas. They had 2 children which they raised in Newport News Va. Once a civilian again he spent many years working as a mechanic for different companies. Later on in life Carroll met Mollie Bailey and as a couple they relocated to Richmond Va. with son Elias Bailey. While in Richmond, Carroll fell victim to a robbery and was physically attacked. That attack resulted in becoming quadriplegic. Carroll had to learn how enjoy life again and grew closer to the lord, his family, and friends for support. He has been blessed to see Elias grow as an international bassist and witness his loving daughters embrace motherhood making him a granddad to 6 wonderful children, his legacy will continue through them.
