Bob was born July 9, 1960 in Perryton to Robert and Doris Perkins. He graduated from Higgins High School in 1978. After graduation he began his work career in the oilfield for 14 years before he and his father bought an Emu Ranch.

Bob was an active and supportive member of the Canadian AA group since 2016. He was a long-time member of the NRA and Harley Owners Group. To say Bob was an avid NASCAR fan was an understatement as he enjoyed watching and talking about it as much as possible. He enjoyed fishing and target shooting and took pride in teaching his grandchildren the skills necessary. He also enjoyed watching drag racing, fireworks, riding his Harley, and eating Pumpkin Pie. Bob treasured his role as PaPaw and will be missed dearly.

He is preceded in death by his parents.
