David William Perrine Jr, (63) our beloved son, brother, father, and grandfather, passed away suddenly on December 20th, 2023. He was born on June 28th, 1960, in Morristown, New Jersey to David William Perrine Sr and Beatrice Mary Utman Perrine. He was the oldest of five sons. The family later moved to Utah where David called home. David graduated a Cyprus High pirate in 1979. He loved all things athletic and outdoors. Baseball, football, wrestling, skiing, riding horses, fishing, and camping. There was nothing he wouldn’t try.

David met Kimberly Zito in the fall of 1987, they later married on January 28th, 1989, at Saint Martin De Porres Catholic Church. Together they had 4 incredible children, whom David cherished and adored. David made it a priority to be there for each one of them. He loved nothing more than spending time with his adult children but his favorite role later in life was being a grandfather. He was always there for them to offer his love, encouragement, and support.

While those roles were dearest to his heart, he also found satisfaction in his career which always involved some aspect of helping people. David’s coworkers not only considered him a valued colleague but a treasured friend. David's final business card titles him as Junior Perrine the “Financial Guru”.

David always put the happiness of others above his own and would give the shirt off his back if it meant helping someone in need. He was known for his love of his country, sports, family, and his Christian faith. We know that the memory of David will also live on in all the wonderful people that David called family as well. Losing David is a huge loss to his family, his friends, his community, and his coworkers. To say that David will be greatly missed would be a massive understatement.

All who truly knew David will understand us closing this tribute to him with "Have a great day and thanks for using voicemail."

David was predeceased by his father David Perrine Sr. Survived by Mother Beatrice Hartin, Former spouse, and best friend Kimberly Perrine. Children Ashlee Perrine, Ryan Perrine (Andraya), Christian Perrine, and Abigail Vangerwen (Jack), Along with his grandson Riley Perrine and granddaughter Ellayna Perrine.

Those who want to pay their final respects to him are invited to attend his farewell services.
