Perry, along with his wife Olive, were the owners of Daub Builders which was in business for 30 years doing residential and commercial construction in Putnam County and NW Ohio. Upon retirement, Perry and Olive enjoyed being snowbirds and spending winters in South Texas for a number of years. After living and raising their family in Ottawa for over 50 years, they cleared out their attic and moved to a new home in Columbus Grove in 1997, where they enjoyed meeting new friends. Perry set up a workshop in the garage where he could work at stained glass and scroll sawing. He pored over patterns, adjusted them and fashioned numerous pieces which grace the homes of family and friends. Throughout his life, Perry loved to read, especially mysteries, westerns, and lawyer suspense novels. He was a dedicated family man who firmly supported his children’s education and various endeavors. Perry was also a member of Trinity United Methodist Church, Ottawa and its Board of Trustees; the Ottawa Public School Board for 12 years, Ottawa Town Council for 12 years and the Ottawa Kiwanis Club.
