Cliff D. Perkins, 75, of Lincoln passed away at 1:20

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

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.
