Robert L. “Bob” Perkins, Sr., age 72, went home to be with the Lord on January 8, 2020. Bob was born on July 26, 1947 to the late Leonard and Etta (Martin) Perkins and was also preceded in death by brothers Curtis Leon Perkins, Joseph Perkins, and James Perkins.
Bob married Glenna Sue (Davis) Perkins on June 1, 1969, in Elk Valley, Tennessee, who preceded him in death, and they were married for 49 wonderful years. He is survived by his four sons Michael Perkins, Manuel (Pennie) Perkins, Robert L. Perkins, Jr., and Matthew (Dreama) Perkins, all of Sidney, Ohio. He has two granddaughters, Kenna and Karissa Perkins, and a grandson, Mason Perkins. He is also survived by Deloris Richards of Wabash, Indiana, and D. Ruth Bridges of Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Bob was just like his wife when it came to loving people. He had many “adopted” children and grandchildren as well. He was a kind and humble man and loved everyone he met. From teaching Sunday school, or just having a listening ear for people to come talk to, he was loved by all that he came into contact with. He also has many nieces and nephews to mourn his passing.
Bob retired from American Trim, LLC in Sidney, and was a member of Central Bible Ministries. He enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. His hobbies included woodworking, gardening, and fishing.
