Charles Walker Perkins, 79, of the Miller Creek Section of Swords Creek, VA, passed away and went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on August 13, 2020. He was born to parents Marvin Aubrey Perkins and Hattie Lou Havens Perkins, on October 3, 1940 in Swords Creek, VA. Although “Chuck” only attended elementary school through the fourth grade, he worked hard throughout his life, moving to Chicago, IL for work at a young age. Over time, he became a certified electrician, certified welder, and a mechanic and could do anything he set his mind to accomplishing. He was a retired coal miner, having formerly been employed by Pittston Coal Company and was a member of the UMWA. He was always willing to lend a hand to help someone with vehicle problems or to help someone in need.
Chuck was known for his love of antique vehicles, especially 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air convertibles. He restored many automobiles during his lifetime.
He is survived by Laura (Connie), the love of his life, whom he met at Sid’s Grill in Honaker, VA in 1960. Chuck is also survived by daughter Judy Renee Yates and husband Scott, three sons, Charles Ricky Perkins and wife Leslie, Stephen “Steve” Perkins and wife Loretta, and Randall “Randy” Perkins and wife Carla, as well as a host of grandchildren (Blake Yates, Brandon Yates, Brittany Perkins Miller, Cody Perkins, Lauren Perkins, and Lakin Perkins) and great-grandchildren (Emma Yates, Haiden Miller, Jaiden Miller, Lucas Yates, and Lawson Yates). He is also survived by three sisters, Cornelia “Corky” Justus and husband Frank, Mary Lou Rasnake, Sally Reynolds and husband JW Reynolds, five brothers, Elmer Perkins and wife Joann, Lincous Perkins and wife Evonne, David Perkins and wife Judy, Clifford Perkins and wife Denise, Gerald Perkins and wife Rexanna. He was preceded in death by parents Marvin and Hattie Lou Perkins, sister Judy Carol Perkins, and brothers, John Perkins and Jason Perkins.

Funeral services will be conducted on Sunday, August 16, 2020 at 7 p.m. at the Honaker Funeral Home with Rev. Jim Richardson and Rev. David Perkins officiating. Cremation to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that people make donations in support of the Swords Creek Block Church, P.O. Box 343, Swords Creek, Virginia 24649.

Charlie was one of the finest men that I have ever met and it was my privilege to have worked with him. He was always respectful, considerate, and always had a smile on his face. We shared a love of old vehicles and I am thankful for having known Charlie. I am sorry that I won’t be able to attend the service for him due to my health. My condolences to the family that he cherished so.

Mrs Perkins, Judy, Rick, Steve, Randy and all the extended family. My heart is broken with the news of Mr Perkins passing. I will never forget that smile and the warm greeting he would always give me when I saw him out. He loved to talk and we would stand where ever we met and talk for such a long time and I enjoyed every minute of talking to him. Mrs Perkins you and Mr Perkins have always made me feel welcome when I would come to visit and I have always felt like part of the family since me and Judy became best friends in high school and I went to spend the night at your home. I told her she was my sister of the heart and she still is, He was such a sweet soul and this life will be darker for his passing. I love you with all my heart and if there is anything I can do., if it is just a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen please feel free to call me. Prayers for peace, comfort and strength in the days to come and the love of God to see you through. Love you Janice Brown
