We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at New Albany Funerals & Cremations
On Thursday morning, June 9, 2022, Perry E. Principi, 60, resident of Myrtle, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes at his home.
A Memorial Service honoring the life of Perry will be at 4 PM Thursday, June 16 in The Memory Chapel of New Albany Funeral and Cremation Care with visitation from 2 PM to 4 PM.
Perry was born January 9, 1962 in Memphis, TN, to the late Jake Joseph Principi and Ernestine Rucker Principi. He was a graduate of the Memphis Catholic School System and was a Lieutenant Fire Fighter for the Horn Lake Fire Department for over 15 years.
A valued friend to many, Perry loved his family fiercely and glowed with pride when talked about them. He enjoyed staying busy, working on old cars and traveling. We are certain we heard the words, "well done, good and faithful servant."
