Jim Perkins, president of the Housatonic Valley Association Board of Directors in the early 1990s, died April 16 in Kent.
Jim Perkins was an exuberant polymath, a successful writer, editor, television producer, outdoorsman and environmentalist. He described himself as someone who could move words and pictures, and maintained that his achievements were the result of chance, “a special kind of luck … occurring over and over… most times good, sometimes not, but happening so often,” he wrote in his autobiography, “By Way of Luck,” published in 2015.
“He was the guy who gets things done, very attractive, very self-confident,” said his wife, Judy.
James N. Perkins, 85, died April 16 in Kent of complications of strokes.
