Thomas D. Perham

Thomas D. Perham 70, passed away on Wednesday February 21, 2018 at the Seasons Hospice Center in Milton Mass. He was the youngest son of Edward and Virginia Perham. Thomas was a proud retiree from the Local 103, the Electrical Union out of Dorchester Massachusetts. He was survived by his sister Jacqueline Jarvis, niece, J. Christina Jarvis, nephews Jonathan Perham and Matt Perham. Nieces Gina Perham and Jacqui Perham. He was Godfather and great uncle to Nicholas, Shianne and Matthew Jarvis. Thomas grew up with his 5 siblings, oldest to youngest; Sonny, Jackie, Bobby, Dicky, and Judy in Boston Mass. He was the baby of the family and the tallest being 6’5″. Tommy never married or had children of his own but took an active role in the lives of his nieces and nephews. He lived in Quincy Ma most of his life. He moved to a condominium in Brockton Ma to be closer to his only surviving sibling Jackie, to help take care of her and her grandchildren.

Tommy loved fishing, football, photography, and being with his friends and family. He had the greatest sense of humor and a laugh that would make everyone in the room laugh as well. He loved the beach and most of all loved Florida. He took many trips with his beloved friends and spoke warmly about it often. Bunratty’s in Boston was his old spot that he would gather with friends. Tommy was quietly very generous and a loving source of support to his family and friends.

A celebration of life will be on April 7, 2018 at the Chateau in Stoughton Mass at 12:00 noon. 1165 Park Street, Stoughton Ma 02072


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Hoping that Uncle Tommy’s heart is as peaceful as the memories he leaves. Will be missing the gentle giant at the Jarvis house, and will certainly be sharing a toast in his honor. Many hugs and warm thoughts for you, Christina, Nick, Shianne & Matthew. xo

    There wasn’t a better friend and I am a very fortunate person who called Big Tommy a friend. He and I had many a laugh and solved all of the worlds problems during our time at Bunratty’s. When I moved to the west coast he is what I missed most. Yes, like so many I loved him. Rest In Peace.
