Mr. Richard "Perk" Perkins, 76, died in the early morning hours of November 2nd, 2018, at his Tipsico Lake home with family by his side. He will be sadly missed by family and his many friends alike. His annual portrayal of Santa exemplified his ability to connect with the young and bring joy to all. Rather than formal services, a celebration of his life will be held in typical Perk style on July 6th, 2019. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the organization of the donor's choice.
