Benjamin Franklin "Cody" Perkins

Benjamin Franklin “Cody” Perkins, 30, originally from Marion, passed away tragically in the early morning hours of Friday, February 11, 2022.

 

He was born on November 28, 1991 to the late Benny Lee Perkins and Debra Diane Perkins. Additionally, he is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, William Carson Bowen and Gladys Mashburn Bowen.

 

Cody was a funny, kind, hardworking, and caring person. He was a big kid at heart. He was always willing to lend a hand when needed. Growing up he had such a love for baseball. He had big hopes and dreams. Those hopes and dreams were slowly shattered due to drugs. Addiction and the lifestyle that comes with it eventually consumed him. When he was clean you couldn’t ask for a better person but drugs turned him into someone we didn’t know and it broke our hearts to see. Drugs robbed him of his life and took him from us.

 

Staying silent and sugar coating how horrible addiction is would mean that his death was in vain. But if one soul can be saved from his story we will tell it over and over.

 

There is a mighty God that can save you from this dark and cruel world and there is help out there if you want it. If you or anyone you know is suffering from addiction please reach out. There is help! Please don’t allow drugs to take you from your family like they did Cody. Please reach out to the RHA Mobile Crisis at 1-888-573-1006.

 

He leaves behind two daughters, Kaylynn Perkins and Madison Perkins; two brothers, Kevin Ledford and Josh Perkins (Della); and one sister, Dawn Cook (Gary).

 

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service with Preacher Denny Wilson officiating. The family will receive friends from 3:00 until 4:00 p.m.
