Larry Ray Perkins

Larry Ray Perkins, 74, was called home Friday, December 15, 2017. A Hero and the best Daddy ever to His 2 Daughters, Kris(Jon)Perkins-Buehler and Kimberly Perkins. A Superhero Grandfather to Alexis, Rylan and Brock. Adored by His Great Grandson, Sawyer. The best Big Brother to Richard (Alice) and Mark Perkins.

Not much Larry could not fix with his quick mind and strong hands. He proudly served in the United States Air Force for 8 years. You could find Larry most of his days outside doing what he loved most, working in his yard. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Betty Perkins, and his beloved dog China.

He showed nothing but strength and determination during his 12-year battle with cancer. Cancer never took his amazing smile and charisma away. He took his last breath with Kim holding him and kissing his forehead as Kris comforted him with loving words.

Family and Friends, please join us in celebrating Larry's beautiful life with us. Saturday, January 13, 2018. The District Venue, 1350 SW Vintage Parkway, Ankeny, IA. Family will be present starting at 4:30 pm, 5:30 pm Funeral Flag Presentation, followed by sharing stories and celebrating Larry's wonderfulness into the night.
