Nicholas Elton Perkins, age 33 passed March 31, 2016 at St Marys Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Nick was born August 21, 1982 in Alma, Michigan, the son of Rick and Katherine (Judge) Perkins. Nick graduated from Montabella High School. He proudly joined the United States Navy and honorably served for 7 years. He served as an aviation electrician on the USS Abraham Lincoln. Nick went out of his way to give; whether it be a smile, a hug, a helping hand or a laugh. He enjoyed hanging out by the campfire with family and friends and spending time with his child; his canine buddy Ren.

            Left to cherish his memory are his parents, Rick and Kathy; sister, Jessica Perkins and her significant other Brook Larson; brother Thomas Perkins; nephews Owen and Nathan; grandparents, Elton and Georgeanna Perkins.

    So sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Nick one summer at PCA, he was always so upbeat and always had a smile to give.

    I am so sorry to hear about Nick. I was a friend of his in the Navy and worked with him for a few years. He was a damn good man and I was sad to see him go. He always brought a smile to everyone's
    face in the workcenter and was a real pleasure to be around. Taken way to soon.

    I know he is in a better place now watching over us all and laughing at all the goofy stuff we do. God Bless you and the family.

    Such a shame. My deepest condolences and sympathies. I had the honor of serving with this fine man. I'll always remember his dedication and great work ethic along with his sense of fun and quick wit.
    The world has lost a good man and he will be sorely missed.

    So sorry for your loss. I was attached to VFA 2 when I met him. He was a good friend and sailor. I'm honored to have been apart of his life even if I only knew him for a few years.

    I knew Nick in the Navy. He was a good dude and I enjoyed our deployment together. He always made us laugh. Our time away was always better with him with us. That's a true statement. I'll miss you
