Desmond (Des) Perkins - Barry 41 Club

Desmond (Des) Vivian Lloyd Perkins.

Barry 41 Club is saddened to report the passing of Des Perkins, on Tuesday 11th August 2020, at the age of 88, after a long spell in hospital, following a major stroke. Des was a former member of Barry Round Table, an active and long serving member of Barry 41 Club, Chairman in 2008 and 2009 and also a member and former President, in 2012, of Barry Probus 2.

Before his retirement Des was a manager with the Midland Bank and lived in Dinas Powys, following his retirement he became involved with many organisations and charities and gave his time generously to these and to the many other causes he supported, always willing to help others in the community.

Des was a true gentleman, well respected and very knowledgeable; he will be remembered for his good humour and quick wit at Club meetings and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Des was a devoted family man and our sympathies are with his wife Audrey and all his family at this very sad and difficult time.

David Lewis,

Hon. Secretary,
