Dr Victor Jay Zuckerman, age 69, of Monroe, LA was born on March 22, 1952 . He was raised on the East Coast outside of Philadelphia. He went to High School in an area right near where Washington crossed the Delaware. He was an all-state swimmer and soccer enthusiast.
Following High School, he went to College in Lancaster, PA, on a swimming scholarship. College was followed by a stint at Villanova College where he started a Master's Degree in Biochemical Genetics. However, that training was cut short when he was accepted to Medical School in Philadelphia. Following medical school, he went to Chicago to do a Pediatric Residency and followed that with a Fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care. Critical Care enabled him to diagnose, stabilize, and treat the sickest of all children whether it be post-op cardiac surgery, transplants, trauma, cancer or illness.
He is survived by his loving fiancee, Judy; his mother, Sondra; his sister, Gail; his two children, Matt and Katie; and two grandchildren, Connor and Asher. He touched so many lives over his 30 years of pediatric practice and will be missed by so many.
Dr. Zuckerman passed away on April 30, 2021, in Longview, Texas. A private family service will be held at later date. Online condolences may be left at www.easttexasfuneral.com
