Jeffrey Lynn Perkins
1951 ~ 2016
Jeffrey L. Perkins lost a valiant fight to stomach cancer on the morning of July 12th 2016. He passed away sleeping with his only son at his bedside comforting him in his home. His strength through the battle with cancer was undeniable. He endured over 60 rounds of Chemotherapy and more than 50 radiation treatments. He rarely complained and stayed self sufficient through nearly all of it. Of course, he was blessed with a tremendous support group made up of family, friends, and neighbors.
Few people these days dedicate their lives to one thing, and master it. But, Jeff was one of those people. His younger years were devoted to framing, and construction where he honed his skills and drive for a perfectly square house. Skills that made him sought after in the valley. Followed by 28 years of building custom wood furniture. He would take the vision of an artist and turn it into reality. He was dedicated and loyal to his workplace of Ty Loyola & Designs. Each piece of furniture will leave behind a legacy of beautifully handcrafted furniture that will stand the test of time. Each individual piece a homage to his skill and abilities with woodworking.
He was a kind gentle spirit who loved his family more than anything. He had one son with Sharon Magee who later married Jeff McKee. All three of them were very tight and stayed strong to raise their son Trevor. Jeff had two sisters, and two brothers whom he loved dearly. Of course, that love spilled over into every family member within the Perkins clan. Family truly was the center of his life, and most often his free time on the weekends would be spent with them.
He passed on his love of nature and the outdoors to his son Trevor who now roams around the wilderness taking photos anytime he can. He also loved riding dirt bikes, going on hikes, spending time at the lake, and skiing, as he would often haul the kids up to the mountains. He also loved having bunches of neighborhood kids come over to play. He may have only had one son, but the kids in the neighborhood were all fond of Jeff and his giant loving black lab Seevo.
Family, friends, and neighbors will miss Jeff. He was a simple and gentle man, but his kind spirit made anyone feel welcomed and comfortable. We love you!
