Kermit S. Perkins

Kermit S. Perkins passed away at his home in Pleasant Hill, IA on Sunday, July 23, 2023. He was 87 years old.

Kermit was born September 15, 1935, in Corydon, IA to Hollis and Orville Perkins.

Kermit was a workaholic that rarely sat still. He was a carpenter, mechanic, and worked many years at UPS, Schneider Trucking, and Newbury Management Co. He also owned his own cleaning/maintenance business for many years. Kermit was always willing to help his loved ones at the drop of a hat. He enjoyed classic cars and car shows and loved DJing at those in his spare time. In his later years he found great joy hanging out with his “best friend”, his dog Jake. He will be greatly missed by all his loved ones.

He is survived by his wife Sharon; his children, Scott (Carol) Breon, Tim (Stacey) Breon , Shelly (Brian) Thomas, and Larissa (Tony) Spaulding; stepchildren, Robert, Linda, Paul, and Theresa; grandchildren Addy, Tyler, Hailee, Emma, Landon, Cord, Brylee, Kroy, Tia, Tad, Tye, Tanner, Noah, and Kali; step grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.

Kermit was preceded in death by his parents, a sister Dorothy, and a twin brother Kenneth.

A memorial services will be held August 9th at the Basilica of St John, 1915 University Ave, Des Moines, IA at noon. The family will greet friends from 11:00-11:50 at the church.
