Lex Perrin Obituary

Lex B. Perrin, age 93, of Tipton passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was born on May 7, 1930 to his parents, Luther & Florida (Harp) Perrin in Celina, Tennessee. Lex married Linda (Marcus) Perrin on January 18, 1980, and the two shared 44 years together.  

Lex attended school in Tennessee. After making his way to Indiana, Lex began working for Chrysler Corp. in Kokomo, retiring after 30 years. Lex enjoyed watching westerns on TV, collecting coins, and having coffee with his buddies at Burger King. Lex was one of a kind! He was almost always joking around and often accused of being ornery. Most of all Lex enjoyed spending time with his dear family, and he will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

Those left to carry on Lex’s legacy of love are his wife, Linda Perrin; children, Ronnie Perrin, Rodney Perrin, Cindy (Mike) Mendenhall, Tammy (Mike) Phifer, Pam Perrin; 20 grandchildren; 28 greatgrandchildren; 5 great-great grandchildren; siblings, Lecil (Mary) Perrin, Libby Arnett; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.    

Lex was welcomed into Heaven by his parents, Luther & Florence Perrin; son, Richard Perrin; 9 siblings; and stepdaughter, Julie Stucker.
