Obituary's Biography:

Kevin F. Perkins, 44, a resident of Round Lake Beach, IL, passed away November 22, 2021.  He was born March 29, 1977 in Evanston, IL to John Perkins and Gail Chapman.  Kevin was the third of four children.  He was a charismatic young man with the heart of a lion.  Kevin’s passion for the outdoors and fishing started at a young age with his Grandpa Art and continued through adulthood.  He was the type of person who could make others laugh not by the jokes he told, but by laughing at himself before he finished them.  He was incredibly resourceful and very handy. Despite his demons he struggled with he always believed in himself and those around him.  Kevin is survived by his mother, Gail Chapman, his father John Perkins, his step-mother Linda Perkins, his daughters Kaylee and Ember Perkins, his siblings Kelly (John) Pehler and Jon (Nancy) Perkins, his grandmother Jan Perkins, and many nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his brother Daniel Chapman and his grandparents Arthur and Marilyn Wisniewski and James Perkins.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Kevin’s honor to www.drugfree.org.  All funeral arrangements were entrusted to Strang Funeral Chapel & Crematorium, 410 E. Belvidere Rd. Grayslake, IL.
