Sheila Perkins of Evansville, Indiana, passed away peacefully Saturday, December 17, 2016, after a two-year battle with a rare form of ampullary cancer. She had just turned 44 years old. 

Perkins was vice president of MadStache Inc., producers of the TV show, “My Classic Car.” She was elected to multiple terms on both the Young Executives Network (YEN) and Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO) select committees, and volunteered on many other SEMA taskforces. Her beautiful voice and love of music enabled her the opportunity to sing at numerous SEMA Banquet after-party events. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that those who wish to pay their respects hug their loved ones a little bit tighter and find the good in each and every day.

Perkins is survived by her husband of 20 years, John “Chip” Perkins, and daughter Paige Perkins.
