Obituary for Richard Gregory Perkins

Richard Gregory Perkins, 73, of Nashua died at home on Thursday October 1, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born on March 22, 1947 in Concord, MA to the late Raymond and Grace Perkins. He resided in Acton, MA for most of his life before he met his loving wife Barbara Perkins. They were married in Hollis, NH on May 21, 1983 at a beautiful ceremony on a picturesque day.

Richard was an electrical board assembler for Heidelberg and Goss International before retiring early. He then began delivering auto parts for Tulley GMC in Nashua since 2009, and was well known as “Walter” to his peers (taking on the persona of the Jeff Dunham puppet). Richard loved his antique cars and in his free time he would spend it tinkering on one of the four he owned. He was an adult leader of Troop and Den 19 for Boy Scouts when his son was involved. Richard Also was a Freemason from the lodge in Effingham, NH.

Dear Greg,
So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He truly was a model leader for Troop 19. Our family will always remember the wonderful adventures we shared with him and your mom and you; hiking in the white mountains, bike riding and camping on Nantucket, and of course "conquering" the Grand Canyon. May he rest in peace, forever in our hearts. "The Chaputs" Bob, Donna (Warner), Brian, and Renee (Tolios)
