Roy Lee Perkins Sr. Obituary
Roy was born to Roy Clyde and Myrtle Perkins on May 31, 1946 in Riverdale, California and passed away February 1st, 2015 in Bakersfield, California.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Donald Perkins and granddaughter Hailey Perkins. He is survived by his sisters Mary Massella, Sue Oliver and their families; daughters, Glenda Porter, Rhonda Perkins, Angela Mahan; son Roy Perkins Jr., 14 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and his longtime best friend Kathy Payne.
Roy was raised and spent all his life in Southgate. He worked his young adult life in the potato sheds and moved onto the oilfields where he retired in 1995. Once retired, he devoted his every second to helping others. He would be there for you at the drop of a dime, friend, family or foe. Helping and giving were his passion in life and kept him young.
We would like to thank Optimal Hospice Care for their tender care and help during his last days.
Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of life on Saturday, February 6th, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30pm at 115 E. Roberts Lane, Bakersfield, CA 93308.
