On the evening of November 27, 2017, out family chain was broken once again. Our beloved Elvin Ironia Perry transitioned to Glory. He was predeceased by the mother of his children, Queenie Ferebee; six brothers, Jeremiah Perry, Jr., Charles Perry, Robert Perry, George Perry, Jerome Perry, and James Perry; three sisters, Mary Shivers, Doris Knox and Sara Riddick; one son, Timothy Ferebee; three grandchildren, Matthew Bynum, Na’imah Bynum, and Karim Hicks and two great-grandchildren, Yahfah Niemah Jones and Tyion Dashawn Gray. He was educated in the Princess Anne County public school system. Elvin was a hardworking, humble man. He worked as a forklift operator for over 35 years. After retiring, he started his own lawn care service. He loved his family with all his heart, and they loved him. You could always count on him to be there for you. He was known for saying “I am doing alright for an old whippersnapper”. He will truly be missed; his memory will live on through his family. He leaves to cherish his memory : four daughters, Angie Hairston (Wytt), Cynthia Kellam (Andre), Phyllis Gray (Thomas Sr.), and Annette Jones (the late Ronald Sr.); one son, Kenneth Ferebee; twenty grandchildren, twentyseven great-grandchildren, two great great-grandchildren, and close family friends Ms. Gladys Warren and family. He also leaves to cherish his memory a host of relatives and friends.
