WHITEFIELD – Paul E. “Perky” Perkins, 79, of Whitefield, Maine, passed away at his residence on Nov. 21, 2021, after a long and difficult struggle with Parkinson’s Disease.

Paul was born in Gardiner, Maine on June 28, 1942, to his parents Shirley and Lorraine Perkins. He attended local schools and on April 10, 1978, he married Terry Creamer and the two settled in Whitefield and raised a family.
