Charles George Perdue,58, of Huntington, died August 20, 2018, at his home after loosing his battle with addiction. He will be remembered as a strong willed man who lived life on his own terms. He was an accomplished mechanic, motorcycle enthusiast, and always had a soft heart for animals. Unfortunately, he will now also be a statistic in the drug epidemic that is so prevalent in our state. Though many saw him through the lens of addiction, he truly loved his family and friends, even if we didn’t always see it. He was preceded in death by his mother and father Doris Irene Perdue and Charles Edward Perdue, Sr. and a sister Charlene Kay Perdue. He is survived by his children, a son Joseph Anthony Adkins and a daughter April Lynn Perdue; brother Charles Edward Perdue, Jr.; five grandchildren, Jacob Anthony Perdue, Parker Sean Elmore, Madison Paige Elmore, Sydney Rain Montalvo and Gage Anthony Adkins, along with a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and a very special puppy “nugget” who gave him light and happiness his last days here on earth. From our family to yours, if you or someone you know suffers from addiction there are ways to help. There are ways to break free, don’t be afraid to seek treatment. All services will be private. Rollins Funeral Home in Kenova is assisting the family. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rollinsfh.com.
