Perry was born in Melissourgio Halkidikis Greece. His mothers name was Argyro Petras and he grew up in an orphanage. He served as a Greek sailor in the Greek Navy. Later emigrated to the USA to meet his beloved wife Eddie. Perry was the founder of Verona Pizza where he and Edith dedicated their life. Perry loved to play soccer when he was younger and loved to play backgammon. Perry spent the last 10 years of his life caring for his very ill wife and ultimately moved into Spring Mill to be with her. He stayed there until he entered into eternity, almost exactly one year to the day that the love of his life also went to be with the Lord. We love you Perry!
