Upon receiving an honorable discharge Mike matriculated to Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and received his BA degree in business administration in 1965.

After graduation from Augustana College, Mike worked for several different employers, ultimately obtaining work with Travelers Insurance Company in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He performed in a variety of positions and locations, including management, before retiring after 35 years of service.

Mike and Marian Perman were married August 19, 1967, at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Waverly, Iowa. They had the good fortune of raising three great sons. They moved to Urbandale, Iowa, in 1973, providing them with a very active and cordial life. They were active members of Windsor Heights Lutheran.
