Bob died peacefully on March 14, 2020 at Deer Lodge Centre.

He leaves to mourn his passing his loving wife Marta, son Brian (Lisa), stepson Brad Barker (Colleen), his loving grandchildren McKenna and Ryker Perkins, Addie and Callum Barker, his brother Wayne (Margaret), sister Sharon Palmer, sister in law  Larysa (Brian) Klymochko, Mickey Bereza, and many nieces and nephews who loved their uncle Bob. He was predeceased by his parents William and Irene Perkins, son Michael, brothers in law David Palmer and Andy Bereza.

Bob worked at The Liquor Commission and later at MPI from where he retired in 2002. He was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting, fishing and building things. Later when Bob was unable, he spent his days puttering in the garage.

Bob was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in his 30’s. The disease, with time, ravaged his body. He suffered with many ailments and is now at peace.

As per Bob’s wishes a family gathering will take place in the early summer.

Thank you to the staff at L6W Deer Lodge Centre for their care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Deer Lodge Centre Foundation.
