April 29, 1928 - October 16, 2023


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Herb Perkin, at the age of 95 years.


Herb was predeceased by the love of his life, Laura, his daughters Linda & Cheryl, and stepsons Randy & Larry.


Left to mourn are his sister Doris Birchill, his children Michael (Cindy), Patricia (John), Herbert Jr (Betty), Shawn, Randy (Gisele), Karen. Step children Ken(Irene), Connie,Rick ,Deb (Andre), Melody (Brian), Candy (Kevin), 32 grandchildren, 46 great grandchildren, and 5 great-great grandchildren, and many extended family & friends.


In his late teens, Herb went to Germany & Belgium with RCAF to aid in Canada's post war efforts. He held several jobs, from chief cook & bottle washer (in his words) before he started working for New Flyer Industries where he spent 34+ yrs until his retirement. He married Laura in 1983, and during their 23 years of marriage before her passing in 2006, they shared a love that most people search their whole life for.  Dad loved the simple things in life, and enjoyed spending time fishing, playing cards, penny BINGO or a nail biting game of Kinsmen bingo, and he was happiest doing these things with his family. He was jovial, always had a joke to tell, loved to belt out a Louis Armstrong song or two, and he could light up a room with his ocean blue eyes, and his devilish charm.  He loved deeply, and wholeheartedly, and he will be missed by all who knew him. 


The family thanks his homecare team, and the wonderful staff at Park Manor who made his last days comfortable. 


Funeral will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2023 at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St at 1:00 p.m.
