Dale G. Perkins
Dale was a loving father, grandfather, and a man who will be remembered for his strength, loyalty, and faith in God. He was such a wonderful man and has left a permanent mark fixed on our hearts and will be supremely missed.
Dale’s passion from a professional standpoint was running his two local service stations and convenience stores while providing outstanding customer service to his many clients. He loved sales, meeting people, and building long term trusted relationships. On the personal front Dale loved spending time socializing with family and friends either while camping, travelling, or just at relaxing at home.

He was also predeceased by an infant brother, Kevin; chosen siblings, Donald and Marilyn Hills and mother-in-law Mary Crawford, son-in-law Trevor Paris, brother-in-law Brian McKimm, and James Martin, along with sister-in-law Mary Hazlette-Crawford.
