Perkins III, Carl Wakefield "Sandy" - BERNARDSTON  
BERNARDSTON – Carl Wakefield ""Sandy"" Perkins III, while on a trip with the woman he loved to a place they longed to see, a good, kind, and caring man, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on May 11, 2015 in the south of France. His wife, Mary Beth Whiton, and two sons, Dustin and Jason Perkins, were by his side at the end. A dedicated physician, musician, family member, father and friend, Sandy was born on March 11, 1948 in Cambridge, Massachusetts to the late Carl Wakefield Perkins, Jr. and Ruth Jean Gibson Perkins. He received his public school education in Norwich, Connecticut, then went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Clark University and a Doctor of Medicine degree from St. Louis University. He was Board Certified by the American Board of Family Practice and was a member of the American Academy of Family Practice and the Massachusetts Academy of Family Practice. After practicing medicine for nearly 38 years in Vermont and Massachusetts, Sandy formally retired in 2014. He is probably best known for his work at the Northfield Mount Hermon School, where he served as the Director of Health Services for 22 Years. However, he also served as the School Physician in the Pioneer Valley Regional School District and a part-time Emergency Room Physician at the Franklin Medical Center and the Franklin County House of Correction. Additionally, he practiced medicine for 10 years in White River Junction, Vermont, and held various positions on the staffs of the Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital and the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. He loved to travel, enjoyed the outdoors, and was passionate about causes that advocated for the rights of others and protection of the environment. Sandy was also well known and respected for his singing voice and guitar skills, and somewhat less for his skiing ability and prowess on the golf course, but he took on these and other avocational challenges with enthusiasm, humility, and a wonderful sense of humor. Sandy leaves behind a large and extended family, consisting of his wife, a stepmother, two sons and their mother, their spouses, two step children, a foster child, nine grandchildren, two brothers and their families, and numerous cousins. He loved and cherished them all, and always made time to attend family events. Most importantly, he treasured the time that he spent playing and singing with his grandkids. His extended family invites friends and colleagues to join them in a celebration of Sandy's life on Friday, May 22, 2015 at the Greenfield Country Club from 2 to 4 in the afternoon.
