According to his cousin Tim Powers, Perlin passed away from cancer on Sunday while recovering at home.

“He’s a man of significant accomplishments,” said Powers.

“He ran Cultural Affairs for the province for a very long time, put in there by Mr. Smallwood. Crosbie was well renowned for all his work with the Royal Family, at one point serving as the Canadian Secretary to the Queen. He was most recently honored by the Regatta Committee with an honorary life presidency.”

Perlin got numerous honors throughout his life, including the life presidency.

“He’s received every award you possibly can,” said Powers. “From the Order of Canada to the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador to a Commander of the Victorian Order from the Queen herself.”
