Wayne Roy Perkins, 87, of Belfast, passed away in Bangor April 28, 2017.

Wayne was born Jan. 15, 1930, to Reuben E. and Ellen (George) Perkins. He grew up in Sandy Point and was an avid hunter and also liked to fish. He loved working with wood and was a creative writer. Wayne moved to Belfast with the love of his life, Alfreda, and built his own home from the ground up.

Wayne was predeceased by his parents; his wife, Alfreda (Nickerson) Perkins; son Dennis Perkins; and brother Merle Perkins.

He is survived by his son Jonathan Perkins of San Leandro, Calif.; daughter-in-law Debbie Voter of Livermore; two nieces; two nephews; many cousins including Jack and Gerry Brady; and special friend Marion Fisher.

While Wayne battled ill health in recent months, it was, in his own words, that his demise ultimately was caused by his "bad disposition."

In lieu of flowers, please do an act of kindness to an elderly shut-in or someone in need. Flowers last a mere moment but the memory of an act of kindness and friendship lasts forever.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. May 5, at Riposta Funeral Home, 182 Waldo Ave., Belfast. Memories and condolences may be shared at ripostafh.com.
