Gene Perkins, 69, 0f Curryville, passed away peacefully August 31, 2021 at Hannibal Regional Hospital surrounded by his family. Bibb-Veach Funeral Homes and Crematory is handling the arrangements. A Celebration of Life will be held at the home of Gene and Patra Perkins in Curryville, Missouri on Friday, September 3, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. The family asks that instead of wearing black, wear blue; Gene’s favorite color. Please bring lawn chairs. Gene loved everything fast and/or loud. Feel free to arrive in your ATVs or muscle cars. Parking is available at the Presbyterian Church or the side streets. Gene was born on June 8, 1952 to Roy Ben and Clementine Harlow Perkins. He graduated Bowling Green High School with the class of 1971. He was united in marriage to Patra Welsh Perkins on May 14, 1983. She survives. Most of Gene’s employment was spent working at the nearby brick plants. He worked for 22 years at NARCO, 5 years at Wiese, and eventually “retired” in 2014, after 6 years at Harbison Walker Refractories. If you knew Gene, you know he never truly retired. There were many lawns in the Curryville area that Gene tended to, on top of making sure his own lawn was cut twice a week. He was a jack-of-all-trades. He enjoyed working on golf carts and lawn mowers, and tinkering around his garage. Gene loved his guns, the outdoors, and hunting and fishing with his sons. Most evenings you could find Gene, his wife, and their dog, Gibson, riding around town in their ranger or golf cart. He loved his grandchildren so much, and cherished the time he had with them. Gene was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Vickie; and a nephew, Glen Fox. He is survived by his wife; children: Donald (Erin) Perkins, Jenna (Joe) Knuffman, and Brennen (Katie) Perkins; nine grandchildren: Ty, Paige, Reese, Addison, Wren, Gregor, Hayes, Sawyer, and Lincoln; his brother, Lee Roy (Joyce) Perkins; sisters: Eva (Tom) Craig, Florence (George) Graver, and Joyce Terry; along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Memorials may be made to the family.
