Obituary for Allan M. Perna

Allan M. Perna, age 70, of Shakopee, MN, joined Christ on Thursday, November 1, 2018.

Allan was born in Leaf Lake Township, Otter Tail County, MN, on December 12, 1947, the son of Marvin and Jlona (Hepola) Perna.

He was married to the love of his life for 38 years. He was a loving and compassionate father to Dave and Kris, his son-in-law Rick, daughter-in-law Jennifer, six grandchildren and one great grandson. He enjoyed visiting his family "up north" in New York Mills and golfing with Dave and Rick and of course his brother Cary. He loved going on long walks, gardening and doing endless projects with Kris. He also looked forward to going to his grandchildren's baseball and basketball games and cheering on the Vikes.

Though he was soft spoken he left an indelible mark on everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. He was a generous, humble, patient, moral, kind and courageous man. He taught us all how to live a good life through his actions not only his words. He was always willing to lend a hand without being asked, even when his health was declining. A true Finlander, he embodied sisu in everything he did. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
-We love you dad.

We would like to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers. The love and support from family, friends, caregivers, nurses, doctors and Pastor Arlen is appreciated beyond words.

Allan was preceded in death by his wife, Joann; grandson, Cody; mother, Jlona. He is survived by his son, Dave (Jennifer); daughter, Kris (Rick Larsen) Perna; grandchildren, Bree, Carly and Camden, Dane and Lila; great-grandson, Kaiden; father, Marvin; siblings, Joni, Cary (JoAnn), Diane (Dan) Muraski, Bonnie (Dan Cedar) Evert, Janel Wensman, Caroline (Kevin) Januszewski, Rochel (Paul) Manders.
