June Isaac “Buddy” Perkins, age 64, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 22, 2022, with his family by his side.
Buddy was born on April 23, 1958, in Jackson County, Florida to June Perkins and Etta Virginia Jeter Perkins. Buddy loved nothing better than spending time with his family; he loved them with his whole heart. He was called upon frequently to help others in need and always did so with a faithful willing servant’s heart. Buddy was a man of faith and member of Mill Springs Missionary Baptist Church. He loved to freshwater fish, watch any western that featured John Wayne and enjoyed collecting wolve figures as well as Native American pieces. There was nothing Buddy liked better than an interesting conversation with a good or new friend. He could engage in conversation with anyone and did so frequently. Buddy never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew him.
Buddy was preceded in death by his father, and a brother, Ricky Jones.
Buddy is survived by his loving wife, Debbie Perkins; his son; Codi Perkins; his mother, Virginia Perkins; a sister, Barbara Pina (John); three sisters in law, Penny Price (Raymond), Pam Weeks and Arlene Powell; a special great niece and best friend, Sarah Weeks; niece Mckayla Price, as well as many other nieces and nephews, extended family members and friends.
In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the family as Mr. Buddy did not have any life insurance.

The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow the service in Cedar Grove Cemetery in Bascom, FL.
