Our community sadly lost a pillar on Friday May 28, 2021, when Mr. John Donato Perona passed away. His contributions to the lives of many include the creation of TriStar Digital Connections, a business that he built over the last 16 years. He was also a key founding member and continually active in several non-profit and religious activities, such as local fire departments, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, and so many other non-profits and charities. John was also a proud veteran of the Navy.
John is survived by the loving community of Gallatin & Hendersonville, TN, and his wife Mrs. Teresa Ellis Perona, his children, Jennifer Burman, Joshua Perona, Angela Long, Rebecca McCloud, and Richard Perona, his stepchildren Karen Flipper & Brian Covert, along with their wives and husbands and thirteen grandchildren. Mr. Perona is also survived by his two brothers, Jamie Perona and Dale Perona, and several cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John & Laura Perona.
His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone he interacted with as well as those he reached but never met. Help his kindness, loyalty and compassion continue by donating to, or volunteering at, one of the organizations Mr. Perona loved.
