Walter Perkins

November 9, 1933 — November 9, 2020

Walter H. “Perk” Perkins, son of the late Walter Perkins and Mae Logan Perkins, was born October 16, 1933 in Taylor County, Kentucky. He died at 9:22 P.M., Monday, January 13, 2020 in Campbellsville.   Age:  86

He professed faith in Christ and was a member of Robinson Creek Baptist Church.

He served his country honorably in the United States Army.

Walter was a retired employee of Atmos Energy after forty years of service.

Margaret recalled never hearing Walter say, “wish I didn’t have to work today”. That is how much he truly enjoyed being around people.  He was known as a “Mr. Fix It” and was the rock of the family.  He also loved to camp and just enjoyed life.

Walter united in marriage to Margaret Durham January 12, 1962.

Besides his wife, Margaret Durham Perkins of Campbellsville, he is survived by

one son and two daughters: Steve Parker and Shari Walters and Timmy Nicholas of Campbellsville and Shanna Smith of Chattanooga, Tennessee; six grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; one sister, Agnes Rainwater of Campbellsville; several nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.

Walter was also preceded in death by two brothers: Ellis Perkins and Ralph Perkins in infancy.
