OBITUARY Print

Dr. Martin “Marty” Holzman – Radiation Oncologist, departed this life on April 9, 2021. 

Marty was born on January 4, 1955, in Union, New Jersey. He completed his Undergraduate studies at Perdue University, Graduate studies at Wagner College, and Medical School at St. George’s University.  He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Brown University’s Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island from 1982-1985 and then a fellowship in Radiation Oncology at UMDNJ’s Saint Barnabas Medical Center from 1991-1994. 

Marty’s career as a radiation oncologist began in upper New York State in the cities of Malone and Plattsburg where he practiced for 5 years.  He then accepted an Associate Director position at the Davenport-Mugar Cancer Center in Hyannis, MA where he served for 6 years.  From there he became the Medical Director of South County Radiation Therapy & 21st Century Oncology in Wakefield, RI where he practiced for 6 years before moving south to become Medical Director with Community Cancer Center of North Florida in Gainesville, FL where he practiced for 7 years.  He came to Fairview Park Hospital in 2017 via CurePoint/Atlanta Oncology Associates where he worked as a staff Radiation Oncologist. 

Marty was a great colleague who was dedicated to excellence in the practice of Oncology.  He was consistently engaged in medical staff affairs at Fairview Park Hospital through multiple committee assignments and he routinely volunteered to represent physician interests to the public.  He faithfully volunteered his time in support of Relay for Life, Breast Cancer Awareness, and other outreach programs that sought the betterment of life for cancer patients and survivors. His impact on our community will be missed. 

In his private life, Marty was a loving husband, devoted father, and grandfather, and faithful friend. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, kayaking, skiing, riding his bike, and strolling on the beach. Marty loved a good cigar, quiet time reading, playing with his dog Cooper, shooting guns with his Bell Rock family, dinners with his Georgia Small Group, and drinks on 4 at 5 with his Surf Club friends, and Marie’s Moscow Mules. Our hearts are hurting and we will forever miss his smile that would light up his face.

He is survived by his wife, Marie McCormick Holzman of Dublin; children, Katie Holzman of Washington, DC, Stephen Holzman of Boston, MA, Danny Holzman of Indianapolis, IN, Eric Holzman of Cape Cod, MA, Jesse McCormick of London, England, and Samantha McCormick, of Boston, MA; father and mother-in-law, Edward Dennison (Dayle) of Coldwater, MI; sister-in-law, Judy Arrison; grandchildren, Thomas McCormick and Emma McCormick both of London, England; sisters, Carole Sutphen and Helene Engle, step-mother, Michal Holzman, several nieces and nephews, and his favorite furry companion, Cooper.

I was so broken hearted when I heard of Dr. Holzman's passing.  He was such a kind, caring &  compassionate doctor.
He was so good to me during my fight with breast cancer in 2018-2019.  I know he will be missed by many but I pray that God will ease the pain of this great loss!   I send  my prayers and deepest sympathy .
