LEWISTON: Christopher W. Perry, 46, of Rumford passed away on Wednesday February 3, 2021 at CMMC in Lewiston due to a massive heart attack. He was born in Rumford on June 7, 1974 a son of Marion and Regine (LeBlanc) Perry Smith. He loved growing up in Rumford, more specifically the "old" neighborhood. He made many childhood and high school friends. He remained close to them to this day. He adored his grandfather and spending time with him and his Uncle Ray at LeBlanc's General Store in Roxbury Village as well as the family camp on Roxbury Pond. In his twenties, Chris moved to North Carolina where he married Linda Perry. Together they had their son, Tyler, who was his pride and joy. He also raised his step-son, Michael Isner. He was quick to volunteer his services to anyone in need, whether it be a friend after surgery, rides to the store and Italian Bakery or babysitting a helmet wearing buddy. He was always ready with a helping hand, but most especially with his mom, who was his #1 priority. He and his live in girlfriend, Jodi, enjoyed trips to the coast, mountains, shows and concerts. They also like hosting BBQ's where Chris was the grill master and everyone reaped the rewards. He was also the rolling master. Everyone reaped those rewards too. His passion was for music. You could always find him strumming a guitar or spinning records on an old turntable. He will be sadly missed by many. He is survived by his mother, Regine L. Perry Smith, his son, Tyler Perry, and his step-son, Michael Isner. He also leaves behind his brother, Stephen M.

Regine, we are so sorry for your loss. Christopher was such a large and gracious personality with a huge heart. He was always there for his family and friends through words and most importantly, through his actions. From an early age Chris was a natural leader and a confident force that just drew people close to him.

Although time moves faster than any of us would like, memories are the fixtures that ground us to our past and help us shape our futures. I am truly greatful for all the amazing childhood memories that were made with Chris and his beloved “hometown crew”.....

He will be sorely missed.....but with all of the amazing memories.....never forgotten.

Our deepest condolences......

My deepest condolences to the family!!! I don’t think I have a single childhood memory without you in it! We had our neighborhood friends that we were with on a daily basis! Then we all somehow drifted apart and made families of our own! But don’t you worry Chris, I will see you on the other side!! ❤️💔
