NEWS, SPORTS, COMMENTARY, POLITICS for Gloucester City and the Surrounding Areas of South Jersey and Philadelphia

Obit Paul G. Hurlock Sr., of Gloucester City
Mary Ann Worthington, 66, of Deptford

Doctor Vorrie B. Macom, formerly of Haddon Heights


Went home to be with the Lord today, July 8, 2007.
Doc was a graduate of Haddon Heights High School class of 1954, where he was a member of the 1952 Championship Basketball Team. He graduated from Gettysburg College, class of 1958, and Jefferson Hospital Medical College, class of 1962.
Doc loved the ocean, sitting on the beach, breakfast at Bob's Grill and riding his bike throughout his beloved Ocean City, NJ. An 'old school' physician, Doc was renowned throughout the medical community for his abilities as a hands-on diagnostician and practiced the art of healing for forty-one years. His practice began in Wenonah, NJ with his close friend Dr. Donnie Weems of Cape May, NJ. He moved his practice to Lansford, PA, where he practiced for twenty years. His lifelong dream of living at the shore was realized in 1982, when he moved his practice to Marmora where he remained until his retirement five years ago. So loved was he by his patients in the Poconos that some would ride the casino buses down to Atlantic City to seek out his care where he served as house physician at the Tropicana and Bally's. If you find yourself on either of his favorite beaches in Ocean City, at 50th Street or 14th Street, think of him, because that is where he was happiest.
Doc is survived by his son, V. Scott Macom, Esq., and his wife Kellie and their two sons, Bobby and Alec, son Robert Macom and his wife Gina and their children, Robert, Brandon and Alexa, and his wife of thirty-five years, Mildred Ann Macom.
A private memorial service is being held for closest friends and family. In lieu of flowers or other offerings, please make donations in care of Doc's Memory to the American Diabetes Association, Philadelphia, PA Office, 150 Monument Road, Suite 100, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
