Jackson, MI-Michael Perdue,45, was a devoted father to his nine children, a loving husband to his high school sweetheart for 25 years, and known to his coworkers as an inspiration.
His family says they began seeing signs of depression a year and a half ago, but no one would have predicted that he would have taken his own life.
Michael was a Correctional Officer for 24 years at the Robert G Cotton Correctional Facility.
His wife, LaTonia Perdue, continued to encourage Michael to go to counseling, but he refused.
