Perigo was born in Marion (or maybe Lebanon), Indiana, to Lon (1886-1958) and Neva Laham Perigo (1889-1955). He graduated from Delphi High School, and attended Western Michigan University. He played professionally basketball through the 1930's, including two years in the NBL. We wound up being the head coach at his alma mater WMU, and then at the University of Michigan. He died in 1990. He married Margaret E. Burrell (1913-1999) and had two daughters, Pat Gonser and Beth Nagle, and a son, Don Perigo.

Michigan death records say it was Saline, Michigan, so that's what I will go with.
