World War II Veteran from Orrington Dies 

A man from Orrington, who gave a lifetime of service to his country and community, has died. Ray Perkins was in the Army during World War II. He was an Orrington selectman, a volunteer firefighter and he started the VFW in town. He did more than 1,000 interviews at the Cole Museum in Bangor throughout the years with students interested in World War II. In February, we had a story about Ray and his wife Louise who were married for 68 years. A memorial service will be held Friday morning at 11 at the First United Methodist Church in Orrington. Ray Perkins was 90 years old.
