Joseph Paul Perez, 77, of Manteo, NC formerly of Annapolis, MD, passed away on Thursday, July 16, 2020.

Born March 25, 1943, Joe was the second child of Joseph J. Perez and Alice Strohlein Perez. He is survived by his wife of 46-years, Marjorie (Margie) Routt Perez; and his sister, Florence (Sister Josine, SSND) Perez.

Joe grew up in District Heights, MD where he attended Mt. Calvary grade school, Archbishop Carroll High School, and Prince George Community College continuing his education in computer science. He was a boy scout from Cub to Eagle and he served as a weatherman in the National Guard.

Margie and Joe married in June 1974 and soon relocated to Annapolis, MD, where he could enjoy his hobbies as he pursued his career in the computer industry. As a business executive, Joe started in the computer industry as a programmer for Sperry Univac. Shortly thereafter, he saw an opportunity and started a timeshare computer business, which he successfully sold. After a fun stint owning a pizza parlor with his friend and partner George Proctor, he became a senior executive in a number of high-tech companies, including Uniplex, Xerox, Novell, Secure Computing, Silent Runner, and Cloakware.

Once retired, Joe and Margie relocated to Manteo, NC in 2001. Joe was also the owner and often captain of the charter boat “Fight-N-Lady” which was his true love. From 1985 through 2018, the “Lady” was one of the top boats in the best fishing fleet in America, the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. Joe and Sam Stokes were inseparable as owner and captain. Joe was one of the very few to transition from outsider to respected regular of the fishing fleet.

Also, a side interest, Joe was an exceptional hunter having deep friendships with the best goose and deer hunters around. And on occasion, he just might well be seen with an ice cold “ultra” beer in hand.

Joe and his deep belly laugh and sense of humor, was also a good and moral man, a loving husband who will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

A Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Thursday, August 6, 2020, at Holy Redeemer by the Sea Catholic Church, Kitty Hawk by Rev. Dr. William F. Walsh, osfs. A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Joe’s life will be held at a later date.

Joe, you always answered your phone when I called. didn’t matter what time it was, didn’t matter where I was, you always had time to talk. we were not close friends as some are, but I could count you as someone who honestly cared about me and mine. I would talk about going out fishing together…and you would say “give me a call”…. Someone greater than me called first. I will miss you, and was blessed to know you. Clarky

Condolence from Judi Speaks on September 7th, 2020 3:21 pm

Marjorie, Don’t know if you remember me but I was a neighbor of yours on Duvall lane many many years ago. I lived next door and soon left but for the short time you and Joe were my neighbor. You were very kind to me and I never forgot that. I just want to say thank you for your kindness. Take care. Judi
