Mr. Charles 'Eddie' Perkins

January 14, 1959 - August 19, 2021

Mr. Charles E, Perkins, 62, a native of New Orleans, Louisiana and a resident of Leesville, Louisiana passed away on Wednesday August 18, 2021 in Leesville, Louisiana.

Eddie was a very gentle and kind man always ready to help anyone in need. He was not a person that talked much, but his heart would speak loud with the things he did. His main purpose in life was to take care of his mother Ann. In the evenings he would pull his mother outside in her wheelchair under the tree and sit and talk to make sure she got a glimpse of the world for that day. After he felt she had enough he would then roll her back into the house to do it again the next day. She loved him dearly and she was his everything. Mr. Eddie loved cutting grass and helping his neighbors making sure that no pine cone or leaf would settle on the ground a day before it was picked up. He had a daily routine about himself until his health started to fade. After his mother Ann went on to sit in God’s waiting room, his routine did change but not much, he would still sit out on the porch raising his hand to everyone he knew as they would pass his house making sure he would speak and smile. He will be missed dearly by everyone he came in contact with.

Mr. Perkins was preceded in death by his mother, Anna “Alla” Walls; and a host of other family members and friends.

A Memorial Service will be announced at a later date.
