Tribute & Message From The Family

William Joseph Perko, 72 of Midlothian, Virginia passed away suddenly on Sunday September 9, 2018. William (Bill) was born in Cleveland, OH November 16, 1945 to Joseph and Gladsome Perko and brother to Robert Perko, all deceased. He was formerly of Solon and Richmond Heights.

Bill recently celebrated 51 years with his beloved wife Margaret L. "Peg" Perko . He was an amazing father to his only son Joseph Alan Perko of Midlothian, VA. He completely loved and was devoted to his two grandchildren Andrew Joseph & Lillian Jane Perko.

Bill and Peg came to the Richmond area in 1994 after spending 29 years working for Centerior Energy in Cleveland, OH. He continued his career here in Virginia with VCU Health Systems for the next 23 years.

Bill's recent retirement gave him additional time to spend with his family and he would never miss one of his grandchildren's ballgames or swim meets.

He is survived by his loving wife Peg, his son Joe, his daughter in law Kris Perko and his two grandchildren. Bill also leaves behind his three sister in laws, Kathy Manzer of VA, Maryanne Hanna & Katy Bauer both of OH, and all of their many children and grandchildren. In addition to spending more time with his grandchildren, he had recently become much more active in his church, Bon Air Presbyterian.

Funeral services will be held at Bennett Funeral Home at 11020 West Broad Street at 3 pm on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Graveside Services will be 2 pm Friday September 14, 2018 at Lake View Cemetery, Section 37, Cleveland, OH.
