Five grandchildren, Kourtney Britton (Rivir Britton), Tysen Custard, Samarah Custard, Bryonna Custard, Joseph Heaton and two great-granddaughters, Aubry J. Britton and Ellie J. Applegate.

Perri worked in construction and recently worked as a maintenance sub-contractor for American Senior Communities for more than two years. He was a hard worker, loyal friend, husband, Dad and the best Papa to his grandchildren and great-granddaughters. He was the type of man that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.  Enjoyed listening to Pearl Jam and the Moody Blues, loved barbecuing and hanging out with family eating cheeseburgers, and drinking Budweiser. He loved working on cars and doing repairs around his home. He was not an avid sports follower but cherished the times watching his grandson Tysen and the Niles Vikings play football, and his favorite NFL team Arizona Cardinals. Perri made a decision with his wife to donate his body to Science Care in hopes that it will help researchers find a cure for PC.
