In Memory

Marc Feldman

Marc Feldman

     Marc Feldman, 65, of Ventnor, passed away on January 2nd, 2022, following his battle with pancreatic cancer. He was the beloved son of Lester and Jane Feldman, born in Levittown, NY. Marc was involved with many extracurricular activities in high school, including playing tennis, participating on the math team and computer club, serving as photographer for the yearbook, and captaining a championship chess team. He graduated with honors in abstract mathematics from SUNY at Stony Brook. He completed his medical degree in 1982 at SUNY Upstate Medical College, Syracuse, NY. Dr. Feldman began residency training in Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery) at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA. Upon completion of this residency program, he furthered his training by completing a second residency in Plastic Surgery at the prestigious Montefiore Hospital/Albert Einstein Medical Center in the Bronx, NY, completing training in 1989. He practiced Plastic Surgery for over 30 years, serving as the Plastic Surgery Division Chief at Shore Medical Center and AtlantiCare Regional Medical Centers in Atlantic County, NJ and raising his family nearby. Marc met Sissy-the love of his life- in 1982, marrying her four years later. He would call the two of them the perfect team as they fed off each other’s strengths. Together they built their dream life on a foundation of trust and devotion. He was a model family man, who measured his own success by the happiness of his wife and 3 children. Marc was also proud to have a tight-knit group of friends with whom he shared family values and adventure. Espousing the view that the best memories were cultivated by experiences, there was not a playground, museum, or adventure park in the Delaware Valley that they did not explore together. Most memorably, nearly every winter weekend Marc packed the SUV with his beloved family and dogs to meet friends for skiing and snowboarding in the Catskill Mountains by day, while spending nights playing board games and reading by the fireplace. Dr. Feldman loved his work, and his staff was his second family. For nearly 30 years he practiced beside his trusted partner Dr. David Rayfield, never missing a day of work. The relationship with his patients was something that Marc prized above all else, always taking extra time to get to know patients and their families. Upon his premature retirement due to his illness, he received hundreds of cards with testimonials about how much patients and families appreciated his tremendous care and warmth. Dr. Feldman is survived by his wife Sissy (née Anna Gulya), his three children Mathew (Alise), Jenna, and Jay; his granddaughter Aviva; his brother Larry (Stephanie) and nephew Ben; his sister Nancy and niece Keri (Richard) and grandnephew Tyler and nephew Thomas (Vivian).

I am saddened to learn of Marc's passing. We shared a bar- mitzvah together and became friendly through high school.  He was fun to be around and was always a gentleman. I'm sorry that we didn't stay in touch. Rest In Peace.

I met Marc back in Junior High School and we have been friends for about 55 years.  Our families were friends and we traveled extensively toghether.  His passing is very sad and he was far too young.  He gave a great fight against pancreating cancer but could not win in the end. He is a prince, wonderful father, husband, and grandfather.  He will be missed.

I am heartbroken to hear of his passing. What a terrible loss and at such a young age.  What a good guy and such a positive spirit.  Marc was my first boyfriend for many years at #6 school. :)  I will always remember his warm and embrassing smile.  May his memory be a blessing.

I too am shocked and saddened by Marc's passing.  Although we hadn't kept in touch, I remember him well.  We shared many classes and activities in Junior High and High School, and, in addition to his intelligence, I remember his positive attitude and playful sense of humor.  He was just an all around great guy, and his obituary makes clear that he kept those qualities throughout his life.  My condolences to his family and friends.

I remember a bright, sweet kid with a great mop of hair and a goofy smile that warmed and brightened whatever room we were in. 

May his memory be a blessing.

I have a vivid memory of Marc beginning with Mr. Down's math class who used the "little bitty kid" to teach us computer programming.  Marc had a wonderful sense of whimsy and joy.  His sense of humor and laughter carried the day.  I'm sure he was a wonderful father and husband.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family for their loss.

I am so sorry to hear this news.   I remember Marc mostly from Junior High School and High School, and we also both went to SUNY at Stony Brook.   He was one of the best students in the Computer Science class.   As others have said, may his memory be a blessing.  My condolences to his family and friends.

I’ve seen Marc periodically but all too infrequently over the years, at class reunions and occasional other social gatherings. It always made me smile and feel comforted that he was still the same fun-loving, lively, enthusiastic, warmhearted, great guy with a sharp sense of humor that I knew so well in math classes and afterschool activities all those years ago. He always seemed to have a keen enjoyment of life, family, and friends. He will be sorely missed. My condolences to his family and friends who loved him.
