MAZER, Dr. Myron S. (Mike) 85, of Mattapoisett, died February 1st after a long illness. Mike was born in Boston and attended Boston Latin School where in his yearbook, it was written “He well knows what it is to be the favored friend of many”, a quote he lived up to all his life. He received his Bachelor's degree from Boston University and his medical degree with Alpha Omega Alpha honors at the University of Cincinnati where he was granted a Junior National Institute of Health fellowship in Gastroenterology. He was an LCDR, U.S. Navy, retired, having volunteered for active duty during the Vietnam War.

After retiring, he renewed his endeavor in painting both in watercolor and oil and became a nationally and internationally award-winning artist and a two-term President of the New England Watercolor Society. He was a designated U.S. Coast Guard artist and exhibited his work across the county with many of his paintings in museums and public and private collections across the country. He was awarded the “Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award” in 2017 by Marquis Who’s Who Publishers. His work has been published in many art books and an image of his watercolor titled “The Whaleman Statue” is on the cover of the book “A Bold and Hardy Race of Men: The Lives and Literature of American Whalemen” published by the University of Mass Press.
