Perkins, Jacob Allen

Jacob Allen Perkins, 20, passed away unexpectedly on October 4, 2019. He was born on January 14, 1999 at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Virginia. He grew up in Bristol, CT and later moved to Southington, CT where he attended Southington High School, Class of 2017. Jacob was employed by Roberge Painting in Forestville, CT. Jacob enjoyed many things including camping and just being outdoors. He had a strong affinity towards animals, especially dogs, where he seemed to be able to calm and befriend any animal he met. Jacob also loved people and was always striving to help someone be happy. His big heart always reached out to the disadvantaged person to help them in any way. When Jacob had free time, he spent his time with his friends, otherwise known as his “pack of bros”, where they enjoyed their time together as friends do.
