Many of you know Sam Perkins the roofer for his involvement in community things, his unending wealth of energy, his zest for life (Sam loved to dance), his generosity to community groups and to those just in need.

Sam passed away Tuesday after a battle with cancer. His passing is not only a loss for his family and friends but to all of us in the Fishtown/Port Richmond/Kensington area where he was known.

As someone who has know Sam a very very long time, I want to offer my condolences to his family. He will be missed by many.
