Michael Perlin Obituary
PERLIN, DR. MICHAEL J. Dr. Michael J. Perlin, 66, of North Branford, CT, died August 25, 2011 at The Connecticut Hospice in Branford, CT, after a long illness. A loving father, Dr. Perlin is survived by his devoted wife of 27 years, Elaine Damon, son Jared Perlin and daughter Jordyn Perlin of North Branford, CT. He is also survived by his sister Marcia Laski, nieces Beth Laski-Blankstein and Dara Laski, and nephews David and Evan Laski of the Los Angeles, CA area. He was the son of the late Ben and Lillian Perlin of Canoga Park, CA. Born in Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Perlin was Professor Emeritus of Public Health at Southern Connecticut State University, where he distinguished himself as a well-loved teacher, uniquely respected colleague and unflagging advocate for the highest academic standards and accountability in higher education. During 41 years as an educator - the majority spent at SCSU as a Professor of Public Health - he was well known as an energetic and ingenious educator, who left an indelible mark on countless students. He received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Brooklyn College/City University of New York, a Master of Public Health from the University of California Los Angeles and a Doctor of Education from Columbia University, Teachers College. According to his wishes, funeral services will be privately celebrated by the family. In remembrance of Dr. Perlin, donations can be made to the Southern Connecticut State University Foundation (501 Crescent Street, New Haven, CT 06515) to establish the Michael J. Perlin Memorial Scholarship.
