Robbinston – Perry Shain came into the world at the Calais Regional Hospital, born to Marion (Griffin) and Harry Shain on February 8, 1965. He grew up in Perry, Maine with his two brothers and two sisters. Perry graduated from Shead High School in 1983 and joined the Navy in 1984. The Navy gave him a chance to see the world. He was stationed in Guam, but traveled to many countries. This fed his adventurous spirit.

1990 brought Perry to Millie Jo Taylor, they married and gave birth to their first daughter in Machias in 1991 and their son in 1996. The family moved to South Carolina later that year in 1996. The youngest daughter was born in 2001 in Conway, South Carolina.

After the death of his father Harry, he relocated back to Maine to be closer to his roots. Perry had many jobs, but worked for twenty years at Walmart both in South Carolina and Maine. He has been a service tech in the automotive department and has made MANY friends in the company.

Perry was a friendly, kind-hearted man. He loved to tease, tell jokes, dance and have a good time. Loving the outdoors, he often went 4-wheeling, camping, swimming and spending time with his family and friends. He was a giving person and would go the extra mile for the people he cared about.

Perry is predeceased by his parents and nephew, JJ Becker. He is survived by his three children, daughters, Natasha and Marissa Shain, son, Josh Shain, his former wife Millie-Jo Taylor, his brothers, Wayne Mcguire and wife, Brenda, and Harry Shain Jr. of Perry, his sisters, Sharon and husband, James Lucas of Robbinston and sister, Patricia Becker of Eastport; three grandchildren (Perry loved his grandbabies!), Ta'leisha Williams 8 years old, Kevin Williams 4 years old and Arianna Prior 7 months, many nieces, special nephew, Ben Shain, many cousins, aunts, uncles and many friends.
