Mr. Leonard Perkins, affectionately known as “Perk,” was born on April 17, 1943, to Mr. and Mrs. William A. and Sadie Mae Perkins in Arlington, Alabama. He graduated from the Marengo County Training School.

Leonard was a true leader who knew when to change with the economy and culture. Upon moving to Cleveland, Ohio, Leonard worked in the hospitality industry to pursue an extraordinary life.

As Leonard began to thrive in Cleveland, Ohio, he reunited and wed his high school sweetheart Geraldine Junious. The love between Leonard and Geraldine brought two children to the world, April Perkins and Antoinette Perkins.

While working in hospitality, Leonard met captains of industry who inspired him to create a better life for himself and his family. Leonard’s quest for a better life led him to the Ford Motor Company, where he became a proud member of the UAW. After retiring from the Ford Motor Company, Leonard enjoyed every moment of the fruits of his labor.

Leonard was a dedicated supporter of humanity, giving to various organizations, colleges and universities, and charities, including UNICEF, among others.

Family and Friends, you crossed the path of Leonard Perkins by divine synchronicity. Embrace the moments, use the knowledge, and cherish this incredible soul.

Left to cherish his precious memory are his two daughters, April L. Perkins, Antoinette Robinson (Derek); grandson, Nicholas Grandville; siblings, Billy J. (Frances) Perkins, Charity (Wayman) Cash. Leonard leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends.
