Michael L. Perillo, Jr., 72 or Pawcatuck, CT passed away on Wednesday November 20, 2019 at Westerly Hospital.

He was the loving husband of Janine M. (Paradis) Perillo. Born in New Britain, CT on December 11, 1946, he was the son of the late Michael Sr. and Viola (Jiantonio) Perillo.

Michael was a social person and anywhere he went, he seemed to know everybody. He had a good heart and friendly to everyone. His kindness extended to people and pets alike and he would even keep dog treats at home to feed the neighborhood animals. Everyone thought the world of him and he will be so dearly missed by his family and friends.

Besides his wife Janine, he leaves his step-sons Jonathan Pruitt and his wife Anna and Jesse Pruitt; his step-grandchildren Chelsea, Nathan, Viviana and Dante; his brother Dominic Perillo and sister Nancy Beaudoin along with many nieces and nephews.

Services will be held privately by the family. The Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home, 121 Main St. Westerly, RI is assisting the family with arrangements.
