Bruce was born on April 15, 1959 in New Hartford, NY, the son of the late Harold B. Perkins and Marjorie J. Stiles Perkins. He grew up in Jonesville, a small hamlet within Clifton Park, NY, and graduated from Shenendehowa High School, class of 1978.

Bruce was a talented artist from watercolor paintings to designing floors and more. He was notorious for beautiful sketches on whatever surface with any medium wherever he went.  He was a gifted flooring designer and installer with a unique eye, specializing in ceramic tile and slate. He had a gentle spirit and great sense of humor. He enjoyed gathering with friends, listening to music, attending Grateful Dead concerts and riding his Harley.

Bruce is survived by his sisters, Claudia Coffey and Kathleen Fedorchak (Tom); several nieces, nephews, and cousins. But he held a special place in his heart for Danielle and Maddox MaKenzie.  Special thanks to cousin Pamela Barnes; girlfriend Kathy Anthony, and his many special friends who will miss him dearly.
