Kenn Perkins



May 29, 1942 - August 2, 2022

On August 2, 2022, Kenneth George Perkins passed away peacefully following a lengthy battle with cancer. 


He will be sadly missed and remembered by his son, James (Joanne); grandchildren, Hayley, Thomas, and Jillian; sister-in-law, Barb; numerous nieces and nephews; his close and dear friend Lori; as well as other relatives and friends. 


Kenn was born in Winnipeg, MB on May 29th, 1942. After graduating from the University of Manitoba, he pursued a lifelong interest in creative endeavours. He started his own animation studio in the mid 1960’s which over time expanded into special FX for TV in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, and finally into Computer Generated Animation in 1985. He continued working until recently in Marketing/Advertising/Website Design.  


Kenn was outgoing, outspoken, highly intelligent, and had a great sense of humor and passion for life.  Some of his interests included cooking (and eating), decorating, travelling (especially to Maui), photography, scuba diving, woodworking, painting, singing, and playing guitar.  Kenn loved to watch movies, but anyone who knew him understood there was no talking or other noises allowed during the movie!  He was a loyal Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan for many years. One of Kenn’s favorite quotes was “Chance favours the prepared mind”. 


The family would like to thank Dr. Maged Nashed, the staff at the Liver Clinic, Palliative Care, and Grace Hospital Emergency Department for their care.  Also, special thanks to Melissa at Helping Hands Seniors Care for her support & care. 


Kenn recently accepted the Lord Jesus as his personal Saviour and felt at peace knowing where his eternal resting place would be. 


The family has had a private gathering in remembrance of Kenn. 

Kenn's family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page. Please also check back next week for a photo tribute video.
