John Wilbur Quince Perdue, 77, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, April 6, 2020.

He was born to the late Harry and Louise Perdue on April 14, 1942, in Martinsville, Va.

Quince graduated from Martinsville High School in 1961. He then attended Danville Technical Institute, where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering. Quince was employed by Mechanical Development Company in Salem, Va. In 1974, he founded Security Lock & Key Inc., where he worked as a locksmith.

Quince was married 46 years to Deborah “Dee” Perdue. They raised a daughter, Sandra, and two sons, John and Duane.

Quince faithfully attended Salem Baptist Church. He enjoyed reading and studying Scripture, hunting, fishing, hiking, and spending time with family and his dogs.

In addition to his parents, Quince was preceded in death by his brother, Cletus; sister, Joan; and son, Duane.

He is survived by his wife, daughter, son, six grandchildren, and three nephews.

Quince was laid to rest on April 9, 2020, following a private family funeral. A public Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date.

Very sorry to learn of Quince's passing. I knew Wilbur and brother Cletus from childhood on Jones Creek, Martinsville. They were both stand up guys. Quince was truly a good guy, always enjoyed talking to him when I would see him around Roanoke.

Dee, John,
I was deeply saddened to read of Quince's passing. I always enjoyed our little talks when I came in for AEP business. Loved the hunting stories for sure. All of you made me feel welcomed into your world. I lost my wife three years ago and Dee made me feel so comforted just with talking and sharing stories, I'll never forget that. Know that you guys are in my prayers once again.
