In Memoriam: Cyril Perkins


It is with sadness that the family of Cyril Perkins announce his passing on March 14, 2021 at the age of 85, with his family by his side.

Cyril will be remembered by his children Wade (Jill) and Cathy-Anne (Vic), his granddaughters Shannon, Breanne, Kaylee (Ryan) and Valerie (Dave), Cathy-Anne and Wade’s mother Margaret-Ann (Bob Kohli), and his wife Denyse.

Cyril also leaves behind his sisters Jean (Michael) and Gloria (Clive), his sister-in-law June and many nieces and nephews. Cyril was predeceased by his parents Ivan and Ione, his infant sister Joan and his brother Edward.

Cyril was born in Barbados in 1935. Cyril moved to Canada in the 60’s to start his 30-year career with the Dale Carnegie organization as an instructor, business coach and international trainer in both Hamilton/Burlington and Kitchener/Waterloo. His dedication to sharing the Carnegie philosophy benefited many people and organizations throughout his career. Cyril took great enjoyment in his hobbies of photography, gardening, golf and cooking. He also greatly enjoyed a dram of scotch with friends and family over some good music and conversation.
