      Here presented is a matrix representation of recursive number sequences of order $3$ defined by $a_n=pa_{n-1}+qa_{n-2}+ra_{n-3}$ with arbitrary initial conditions $a_0,$ $a_1=0$, and $a_2$ and their special cases of Padovan number sequence and Perrin number sequence with initial conditions $a_0=a_1=0$ and $a_2=1$ and $a_0=3$, $a_1=0$, and $a_2=2$, respectively. The matrix representation is used to construct many well known and new identities of recursive number sequences as well as Pavodan and Perrin sequences.
