It is with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of Dennis Perkins on Wednesday, 08 September.
Dennis was a highly respected member of the Western Province, SAHA & FIH Hockey Communities. He was a former Executive Board Member of WP Hockey Union, SAHA Umpire and Umpire’s Manager and decorated International Umpires Manager.
More than all of this, Dennis was just a genuinely great person. He gave so selflessly of his personal time to the game of Hockey and to WPHU and for this we are eternally grateful. Dennis was a mentor to many over the years. He really had a passion for helping and empowering people to reach their full potential.
Our sincere condolences to his wife, Marion, daughters, Dale & Natalie and sister, Val. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this very sad time.
We are all going to miss listening to the interesting stories and dry but funny jokes over a glass of good red wine.
May His Soul Rest in Peace.
