OBITUARY

Theodore "Ted" V Perkins

September 8, 1947November 6, 2020

Theodore "Ted" V Perkins, age 73, of Franklin, Indiana passed away on Friday, November 6, 2020. Ted was born September 8, 1947 in Peru, Indiana to the late Helen Agnes Perkins (Schlee) and Verl S. Perkins. Ted was a US Navy veteran with a distinguished record in Vietnam including receiving a purple heart. He retired with the last bunch from Kawneer as it closed and was a former member of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. His parents owned the Lake Hotel where he had fond memories. He also missed driving around and listening to music. Ted always liked to stay busy and would "piddle" in the garage constantly. He had a sense of humor that would embarrass his children from time to time; but everyone else enjoyed his humor. Ted would do anything for others especially for his children and family, even going without himself.

Ted is survived by his son, Charles "Chuck" Perkins; daughter, Angela Bowser; sister, Cindy Scott (Stan); 7 grandchildren; and 1 great grandchild.

His urn will be laid to rest with his parents Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 10:00 AM at Franklin Greenlawn Cemetery, Franklin, Indiana.

My favorite memory will always be when you busted grandma for lying about having made dinner and a pie for me when I was in town the night before I stopped by the house. I will always remember hearing you say “Red, come here...,” and then telling me you guys had leftovers and that she never cooked a pie. Her face was priceless when I called her out on it.
Love you!
Red
