Pernell had been feeling ill over the weekend and on Sunday and was having trouble breathing. After a trip to urgent care he was transferred to an emergency department and then quickly to a cancer center where he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia. Unfortunately, during his first round of chemo he passed away.
Pernell had fought several major health obstacles, surviving Lymphoma in 2009 and then recovering from a motorcycle crash in 2014. Both of these occurrences took a toll on his health, leaving him unable to work. As Pernell was unable to work, his sudden passing has left a hardship on his family to pay for funeral costs.
Pernell was and amazing carpenter, a loving father, and incredible grandfather, son, uncle and brother. He was so grateful for everyone in his life and was always in the best spirits.
