Michael Eugene Perrigo, 76 years young, was born September 22, 1943 in Watertown, NY to Selwyn and Grace (Cooper) Perrigo (both deceased). Mike attended Ohio University, where he met the love of his life, Janis Houck. They married August 10, 1968, sharing over 51 wonderful years together. He served as a U.S. Navy Lieutenant and in the Naval Reserves.
