Gregory “Greg” John Rowe Perkins
Gregory “Greg” John Rowe Perkins, an imaging director at Plumas District Hospital, passed away peacefully on April 27 at the age of 75 at his home in Quincy, California.
Born on May 16, 1947, in Long Beach, California, Greg spent his early years in the sunny city before moving to Australia. Eventually, he returned to the United States and settled in Huntington Beach, where he attended school to study radiology management at UC Irvine, School of Medicine. Later, he moved to Quincy with his wife Kathleen and son Wade.
Greg was the son of Maxine and Arthur Perkins. Throughout his life, Greg had a profound love for his family, and he adored his community in Quincy. At Plumas District Hospital, he worked for 42 years as an imaging director where his coworkers were his second family.
Greg was a dedicated father and husband and an incredibly caring and nurturing father figure to so many people, including those who call him Grandpa.
Greg was a kind and gentle soul who loved life and was passionate about his work. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends and colleagues. His legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched, and the memories he created will forever be treasured.
A celebration of Greg’s life will be held on May 20 at 10 a.m. at the Quincy Junction Barn, 1843 Quincy Junction Road, where family and friends will gather to remember and honor his life. He will be laid to rest next to his son, Wade, in the Meadow Valley Cemetery in a private ceremony at a later date. In lieu of flowers please send live plants.

I am so sad to hear this, Greg always was so kind and thoughtful whenever we crossed paths.
I did not know Greg very well, but it was very clear how much he loved his career, colleagues and patients. He will be so missed! Condolences to his family.
So sorry for the profound loss to Kathy, Greg’s family, and his numerous friends. He was a good, kind, and caring soul who was a friend to all creatures great and small. While his passing will be mourned, his beautiful spirit lives on in all the good deeds he performed for countless individuals. Let the sorrow soon turn to happy memories.
Our family sends our sympathies and love to Kathy and the family who is mourning the loss of Gregg from their lives here on Earth.
Gregg had a faith in God and his soul will rest in God’s Everlasting Arms .
Gregg enjoyed simple joys like helping others, old cars, camping, animals and the beauty of the outdoors. He and Kathy can recall many special trips to the West Coast and savoring the memories of being on the ocean. May his family cherish the good times together! Kathy, your friends love u! ❤️Sally
So sorry to hear about Greg passing away. I worked under Greg at Plumas District Hospital as an x-ray technologist in the late 80’s to early 90″s. He is responsible for my training I received to become an ultrasound technologist. I am still working in ultrasound 33 years later. He was like a father to me. I named my firstborn son after Greg (Jase Gregory Meeks) because Greg’s son Wade had passed away. My son, Jase, passed away at 27yo in 2017 from Cancer. I can visualize them being reunited in Heaven now. RIP Greg.
I have worked with Greg at the hospital for it probably 20 years. Smart, hard-working, great leader, but also kind, compassionate and caring. This is a great loss to the community and we will all miss him very much.
