Ronald T. Perkins,78, of Windsor died unexpectedly at his home October 17, 2017. He was founder and operator of Perkins Garage in Windsor, which he operated for 45 years before "retiring" and going to work for Frito-Lay in Kirkwood, where he has worked the past 10 years as a sanitor. He truly loved his work and the many friends he made at Frito-Lay. He was a former member of Windsor Lodge 442 F&AM and a Past Patron and DGL for the OES. Ron was mild mannered and even-tempered with a kind heart. In the eyes of his family there could be no better husband or father. He also mentored many young men into their careers as a bodyman or mechanic. He is survived by his  wife of 57 years, Sharon Brenchley Perkins, his children, Diana (Michael Mosher) Hayes of Endicott, Daniel (Mary Canfield) Perkins of W. Windsor, Doreen (Hamilton) Cadwell of Whitney Point, his beloved grandchildren, Jason (Cari), Kyle (Danielle), Rachel, Melissa (Matt) , Corey and Ryan, 7 great-grandchildren, Carmin, Alexis, Jordis, Anna, Logan, Tyler and Ethan, his brother John (Kathy) Perkins of Vestal, their children Stacy and Brian, sister-in-law Sylvia (John) Battista of Harpursville and their children, Jeremiah, Jesse and Patrick, son-in-law, Donald Hayes, daughter-in-law Anita (Andy) Survila, many nieces, nephews and cousins and many beloved pets past and present.


A Masonic memorial service will be held 11:00 am Saturday October 28 at the Ouaquaga United Methodist Church 2185 SR 79 Harpursville. A religious service will immediately follow at 11:10 am. The family will receive friends at the church from 10-11 am.  am. Burial will be in Knox Cemetery. The family requests memorials to the BC Humane Society 167 Conklin Ave. Binghamton 13903. Please sign the online guestbook.
 

No farewell words were spoken,

No time to say goodbye,

You were gone before we knew it

And only God can tell us why.

 

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you didn’t go alone,

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.
