Kind and caring, Dr. Mark Feldman was a popular member of the Jewish community in Lakewood, N.J., for many years, endearing himself to his hundreds of patients over the decades. He passed away on April 19.

A decorated U.S. Army Combat Medic who served in the Vietnam War, Feldman worked as an orthopedic surgery specialist.

He was described by online mourners as a “quintessential mensch.” A nurse who worked with him remembered his kindness to colleagues and staff alike.

Feldman frequently prayed and studied in the Agudah Shul.

A community member once came into the synagogue on Friday afternoon to pick some personal belongings before Shabbat and chanced upon Feldman with a mop and pail, embarrassed to be “caught” doing an act of community service.

He is survived by family members.
