Richard Carl Perkins

September 22nd, 1928 - March 22nd, 2012

Richard Perkins, 83 of Wilder, died peacefully on March 22, 2012 with his family by his side. He was born September 22, 1928 in Wilton Arkansas to Charles and Minnie Perkins. He was raised in Missouri. He was fortunate to have shared the love of two wonderful ladies throughout his life. These two marriages blessed him with eight children, 21 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren and 5 great great grandchildren. As a drywall contractor, his work provided him the opportunity to see a lot of the country, he has lived in Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Pennsylvania and Puerto Rico. He loved to travel and experience new places and cultures - most dear to him was a trip to Normandy Beach five years ago where he located the gravesite of his father. He had a wide variety of interests-movies, reading, cooking, working in his woodshop and scratching lottery tickets. He loved dogs and always had one by his side. He was an avid collector of “things”. He was a member of several organizations including the American Legion, VFW and the Eagles. He supported many charities, a generous giving man. His family and many friends will remember him as a sweet, feisty and independent man. He was a man who always had an opinion and was quick to share it but always with a laugh. Dad and Grandpa will be greatly missed by all of us. Rest in Peace Daddy. A viewing will be held at Flahiff Funeral Home, Homedale on Sunday March 25, 20212 from 5-8:00 pm. Richards Memorial service will be held on Monday March 26 at FLAHIFF FUNERAL CHAPEL, HOMEDALE at 1 pm with Military Honors.
