OBITUARY

Clarence Edward Pellerin

July 6, 1935March 23, 2020

Clarence Edward Pellerin, known Ed or Eddy, passed away unexpectedly at his home on March 23, 2020. Ed was born in Lynn, Massachusetts on July 6, 1935. He was 1 of 6 children - Charles, Arthur (deceased) John, Anne (deceased), George and Leo.

Ed served 20 years in the US Air Force as a photographer and a mapper with secret clearance. During that time, he married and had 3 sons – Glenn (deceased), Richard, John, and 1 daughter Diane. After retiring from the Air Force, he joined the postal service in Las Vegas, NV where he worked for another 20 years. There, he met Betty Pellerin who had 3 daughters, Tammy, Lori and Ann (deceased) and 1 son Tommy (deceased).

They were married in 1987 and, after retiring from the postal service, he and Betty move to Dayton, TN where they enjoyed small town living. Ed loved to cook and never failed to serve up a good meal with family recipes both in the house and on the grill. He enjoyed woodworking, planes and history and was always willing to tell a story or two. He also had a green thumb and could make anything grow. Ed had 18 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews that he loved dearly. When he was able to spend time with them, he treasured every minute. If it was only a phone call, he was equally pleased.

He was an honest, hard-working man who was loved by all and will be missed by many. He is survived by his wife Betty, his daughters Tammy (Jack), Lori (Lenny), Diane, and his sons Richard and John.

Uncle Ed was an amazing soul! Every time we were fortunate to spend time with him he always greeted us with that warm smile and big hug! We loved his sense of humor, his stories, and his style. Our hearts are made lighter by our fond memories of him, and our prayers go out to Aunt Betty and her family.

During a visit to Dayton I remember Uncle Ed making meatballs and measuring them on a scale to be a perfect two ounces in each one. One of my early visits to Las Vegas Uncle Ed took us EVERYWHERE to sightsee. I was fortunate enough to see Uncle Ed in late January and spent some time with him. I love and miss him more than ever. Rest In Peace Uncle Ed!!!

While we have many memories with Ed, two will always stand out: Working with Ed to help fix his computer and one Thanksgiving that he and Betty spent at our house. He always called Charlene his "Guru" with a big smile when fixing his computer. The Thanksgiving that he and Betty were here was one filled with many laughs, lots of love between all of us preparing the meal, and the joy in savoring the fruits of our labor. A true Thanksgiving indeed. RIP, Ed and lots of love to Betty and family.

Was very blessed to have uncle Ed in my life. Loved seeing him and aunt Betty pull up the driveway at my grandma's or seeing him tinker around in the yard on beautiful days waving as I drove by. I Loved sitting down and talking to him and hearing his stories, when he felt like telling one I listened intently because they were very interesting. We are going to miss his big smile! Until we meet again xoxox

I remember one of the first talks Ed & I had 30+ years ago; he said "I'm not your dad, I'm not trying to be your dad or replace your dad, no one can do that, but I love your mom & will always be here for you". He was true to his word, he was a wonderful grandfather to my sons, he taught them about planes, gardening, computers, history; he supported them in their school, personal activities, gave them advice, watched them grow. They returned that love and respect. He showed me the same love and respect. There's not enough space here to write all that I am feeling, I will miss him greatly, love you Ed, rest in peace and enjoy the next phase of your life

I am fortunate to have many happy memories of Ed. He was kind, genuine, always greeted you with a smile and loved family and friends alike. He loved woodworking and gardening. I recall the thriving garden he cultivated in Las Vegas (which tells a lot about his determination growing vegetables in the desert) and the Bread and Butter pickles he made from the cucumbers he grew were the best I ever tasted. Betty is the love of his life and I hope she can find solace knowing love never dies; that we all will cherish his memory and extend our love to you in this time of sorrow.

My Pe'pere was one of the best people I've ever known. Him and my Me'mere helped my mom(Ann) and the rest of my family so much. I regret not seeing him as much as I should have before he passed away. But in his heart he knew I loved him so much. You will be missed Pe'pere . As he always said "never say goodbye, we will see each other again."

Even though I only met Ed a few times he seemed to be a good guy. He had to be because Betty married him and he had to put up with all of those extra girls plus Tommy if you know what I mean. I know he’ll be missed by family and friends. Love Garry and family

Only met Ed one time, the year I graduated which was the year he married my Aunt Betty. To me Ed seemed like a Great man. Funny, honest, and quite the character. You will be deeply missed by all. RIP ED and we ALL LOVE YOU.
