Cliff D. Perkins, 75, of Lincoln passed away at 1:20 p.m. on Friday, December 30, 2016 at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield.

Cliff was born on December 10, 1941 in Russell County, Kentucky. The son of George and Ina (Popplewell) Perkins. He married Judy Lohrenz on August 29, 1975 in Lincoln. She survives.

Cliff is also survived by his children, Leslie (Rick, also considered as a son) Hoefle of Lincoln, Angela (Doug) Mahler of Lincoln, Teresa (Jim) Smith of Naperville, and Debra Jordan of Lincoln, his siblings, R.V. (Roberta) Perkins, Hattie Hughes, Kenny (Mary) Perkins, Norma Ramlow, Roger (Freida) Perkins, and Janice (Ronnie) Decker all of Kentucky; and his seven grandchildren.

Cliff is preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, one brother, and one grandson.


Cliff was a born entertainer who loved life and his precious dog, Thunder. The word “Can’t” was not in his vocabulary, and he never thought twice if someone needed help. Cliff retired as Illico Oil T.B.A. Division Sales Manager, was affiliated with Jefferson Street Christian Church; and was the Exalted Ruler of The Grand Elks Lodge #914 from 1997-1998. This very giving and loving man from Kentucky will be greatly missed.
