Bob will be missed by us all. Always loved seeing him come in, such a sweet man. Will never be able to pass a Dunkin Donuts without thinking of him. :)

Dear Mike, Rick, Bobby and John,
Your dad was one of the nicest and most generous people I have ever known. He was a good friend and more to me. I know he liked to give all of you a hard time now and again in fun but know that he was so very proud of all of you. I will miss him very much. I always looked forward to his daily phone call. I'm sure he is probably taking care of God's yard right now. He loved his yard!
Please know that all the Perkins family is in my thoughts and prayers.

With deepest sympathy and love,
Mary Roach
