READFIELD - Scott E. Perrow of Readfield, 68, passed away Jan. 3, 2019, at home, surrounded by family after a lengthy battle with cancer. Scott was born Oct. 28, 1950, in Millinocket to Hilda (Glidden) and Kenneth Perrow.

Scott graduated from Stearns High in Millinocket and was immediately drafted into the Army, where he served a short time. He graduated from the University of Maine at Augusta with a degree in music and recording.

He was a fine, yet humble musician and played drums in many popular bands, performing throughout Maine and New England. He built a recording studio in Readfield and worked as the sound engineer at Colby College for 18 years. Scott provided expert sound and musical instruments to local groups, as well as Grammy award winning musicians.

Scott was sought-after for his musical talent and sound engineering. He was well respected by his clients, and known for his incredible sense of humor. He was always helping other musicians and artists and was generous with his time and talent. He offered his expertise and donated business resources regularly.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Deanna (Whitehead) Perrow; daughter Kelly Hopkins, her husband Todd, and children, Jack and Abby; son Joseph Perrow and his son, Gabriel, and Joe's partner Shawna; sister Cathy Horne and husband Brian, nephews Colby and Garren Horne and brother Carl Perrow. Grandchildren Gabe, Jack and Abby were the light of his life and adored their "Gamps".

Special thanks go to his doctors and nurses at the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care, Togus VA, Androscoggin Home Healthcare & Hospice and someone very special to the family, Beverly Friend.

A memorial gathering is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 27, 1 - 4 p.m., at Le Club Calumet in Augusta.
