Victor A. Perella


Victor A. Perella of Framingham and West Tisbury died unexpectedly on Monday, April 21. He was 70.

Beloved son of Lucy (Gold) Perella of Framingham, and the late Michael E. Perella, Victor was a graduate of Framingham South High School and Curry College. He worked as a consultant in the residential construction field for most of his life.

Victor was a man who lived his life to the fullest and truly made it an adventure. His outrageous quick wit and young heart was a constant comfort and joy to all who knew him. He loved travel, fast cars, sharing a drink and cooking up amazing meals for his friends. He always made time for the people in his life and was responsible for many memorable summers on Martha’s Vineyard. His generous spirit will always be remembered with a smile.

In addition to his mother, Victor is survived by his loving sister, Deborah Fowler, and he was a devoted uncle to Jennifer and Jessica Teller. He is also survived by his aunts June Gold and Eva Genaris; many cousins and family friends; his lifelong friends Timothy and Darlene Hanna of Framingham and their children Timothy, Jessica, and Courtney; and countless Hanna cousins and dearly loved close friends.

Victor donated his body to Harvard Medical School and there will be private services with family and friends.

As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be made to the Polly Hill Arboretum, 809 State Rd., West Tisbury, MA 02575.
