Robert (Bob) Perkins beloved husband of Carol Perkins for fifty-two years and loving father to Cameron (Nanette) and Kimberly passed away on Friday, February 1, 2019 at the age of 77. Robert was a devoted husband, dad and grandfather.
He was raised north west of Cochrane where he resided until he was eighteen years old. Nine years after Robert and Carol were married they bought their acreage that was two miles away from where Robert grew up. He had a knack for figuring things out and was able to fix almost anything. When he was at home he was always outside doing something.
Robert worked hard to support his family. Some of the jobs that he had included: the Calgary School Board, opening and operating the Fas Gas in Cochrane, and working for Rockyview school division until he retired at the age of sixty-five.
He was extremely proud of his grandchildren and will be dearly missed by all of them; Austin (Tasha), Lee, Dakota, Morgan, and Tanner. They will always share many happy and fond memories of the amazing man they called “Poppa”.
Robert’s sense of humor, kind heart, and sharp quick wit will always be cherished. He will be dearly missed and forever remembered.
