Timothy Daniel Perrault, 30, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, October 6, 2019, in Lowell, MA. He was born December 4, 1988 in Beverly, MA and grew up in Danvers and Ipswich. Tim graduated with honors from Saint John’s Prep in Danvers in 2007. He attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), where he studied robotics and graduated in 2011with a Bachelor’s degree in Robotics Engineering, a field for which he had great passion.
Tim first took his career aspirations to a job at Symbotic in Wilmington, MA where he worked on programming warehouse robots. He soon realized he wanted to focus more on the engineering side, so he acquired the electrical knowledge required for a job at Thermal Fisher Scientific in Tewksbury, MA and soon became a valued employee there as a Software Engineer; he was frequently asked by his coworkers to help troubleshoot software issues. He really loved his job and being involved in a variety of projects.
Tim loved to ski with friends and cousins, and he looked forward to planning with them the many ski trips they would go on each winter. He recently developed a love for cooking and baking, and every Sunday he would drive to Ipswich for the day and would spend the day baking and cooking with his mom and watching the Red Sox and the Patriots. He spoke with his father nearly every day and would always be helping him fix his many computer issues. Tim was a genius with computers, and could figure out how to fix just about anything wrong with a computer. He talked to his sister Caitlin daily; they had a lot of things in common, one of those being their love for her dog, Brady. Brady lived in Ipswich, so when Tim would come to see his mom and stepdad every weekend, he would play with Brady for hours; in fact, he was the only one who was able to teach Brady his first trick, how to “sit” and “roll over”.
Tim is survived by his father Thomas Perrault of Walpole, MA; mother and step-father Deborah Wysong and Gordon Harris of Ipswich, MA; sister Caitlin Wysong of Manchester, NH; step-sister Eartha Harris of Boston, MA and aunts and uncles Susan Wysong and Martin Blatz, Sarah, Carrie, and Richard Wysong; and many cousins and friends. He will be missed by all for his dry humor and jokes, and for his caring nature and compassion. He will be remembered forever, and his family prays that he is now at peace and hope that he is looking down on us all and watching over us. “Until we meet again, Tim.”
A memorial service will be held at 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 17, 2019, at the First Church in Ipswich, 1 Meetinghouse Green, Ipswich, MA, 01938. All those who knew Tim or his family are welcome to attend and share stories and memories of Tim.
