Stephen Frank Perkins, Sr. was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend who left us suddenly on December 20, 2021, due to complications of COVID-19.
His love for the Blues and his quick wit will be dearly missed by his family. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Bobbie Perkins; his children, Ileana (Jason Longstreet) DeGregory, Stephen (Shonda) Perkins, Jr.; his foster son, Jon Iles; ten grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. His family is most definitely his legacy.
A Celebration of Life will take place on December 30, 2021, from 3-6 p.m. at Staves Memorial United Methodist Church, 2747 East Madison Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa.
Condolences may be expressed online at www.amesmonument.com. Ames Monument & Cremation Center has been entrusted with the care of Stephen and his family.
