We were very fortunate to get to know Tony & Kathleen. Their daughter married our nephew and we became friends. Enjoyed spending time with them at the river. Will miss him a lot. Our condolences to all the family.

I have such fond memories of my Uncle, Anthony”Tony” Perkovich. I was very blessed to grow up in Chicago, Illinois. My Uncle Tony and my grandparents lived upstairs from us and I saw My Uncle every day. I always remember how much he loved to play softball and how much my sister, and parents liked to go places with him in his car. My parents never had a car so it was a real treat if we went with him to a family picnic or to visit other relatives. My Uncle was a very kind, loving, patient man and I will always remember him for those traits. He will be very missed, especially by his family. My love and condolences to his wife, Kathleen, his children and grandchildren. You will be missed my Dear Uncle. Rest In Peace.

My memories are of Tony and Kathleen joining me on so many trips through the Oak Lawn Park District. What a kind, sweet man Tony was. Condolences to the family. George Tarpanoff is my Uncle, he did contact me, so very sorry I was not able to make the wake. Hugs.
