Maxwell D. Perkins



Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute

Maxwell D. Perkins Maxwell (Max) Perkins passed away on Monday, January 15th at the age of 33. Max, a resident of Penfield, NY is predeceased by his father, Brian Perkins. He is survived by his mother, Sueli Perkins, his twin brother, Mark Perkins, and his sister Andrea (Nicholas) Daszkiewicz, as well as his uncle, Theodore Perkins, and cousins Ashley and Trevor Perkins. On the outside, Max was a shy young man with the demeanor of someone truly innocent. You could see that childlike innocence in the sparkle in his eyes when he grinned at something he found truly exciting. On the inside, Max was truly unexpected. Max was an American Civil War enthusiast since he was 4 years old. He always wanted to be a Union Artillery re-enactor, but the expense of that niche hobby put that dream slightly out of reach. Instead, he connected with people around the world, and lead events for the online game War of Rights, a game that recreates American Civil War battles and events. One of his friends from that group said that he was, “the glue that held us together for a long time.” Max also had a hobby that his father once dabbled in: models. He constructed sci-fi kits and historical figures, painted them and displayed them with pride. In addition to that, Max’s other great passion was cooking. He had a particular skill with making pizzas and calzones that his family will certainly miss tasting. As if all of these accomplishments weren’t enough for this young man taken too soon, he also was the hardest worker you would find. His supervisors and co-workers would tell you that he showed up early and gave 110%. He was dependable, always available and willing to help. We will miss Max dearly. Friends may call Friday, February 2nd, from 4-7 PM at Vay-Schleich and Meeson, 1075 Long Pond Road, Rochester, NY 14626. His Graveside Prayers will be held Saturday, February 3rd at 10 am at Oakwood Cemetery on 1975 Baird Rd, Penfield NY 14526. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Genesee Country Museum or Foodlink of Rochester NY. Max donated frequently to both organizations.

    Max I am so sorry it doesn’t seem real. It is so hard to see a young hard dedicated working person like you go so soon. You will be so missed at the car wash! Prayers to your mom and brother during this hard time.
