Martin R. See, M.D., passed away on Sept. 16, 2017 after a short illness. He was surrounded by loving family and friends - his wife, three children, mother, five siblings, in-laws, and friends - at the time of his passing.
See was born on Nov. 10, 1951 in Frankfort to Patricia (Martin) and the late Richard L. See. He was the oldest of six children. He grew up in Elkhart where he attended St. Vincent de Paul School and Elkhart High School, followed by four years at Wabash College, from which he graduated cum laude.
Martin attended IU School of Medicine and completed his residency at St. Vincent Hospital, after which he did a three-year fellowship in cardiology, also at St. Vincent. After practicing with Meridian Medical Group at Methodist Hospital for several years, he joined Northside Cardiology at St. Vincent Hospital in 1986. He remained with the group through its many changes as he practiced invasive and transplant cardiology and finished his cardiology career at the St. Vincent Heart Hospital of Indiana.
Martin was a gifted photographer who honed his craft by attending photo courses in the western United States. He was an accomplished cook of Italian delicacies, a talented guitarist, an avid follower of weather phenomena, a runner and a golfer. He was active in local community theatre as a lighting and sound technician.
He was a loyal friend and, most of all, loved children.
See is survived by his wife of 37 years, Patricia (Brennan) and three children, Kevin (Elizabeth), Tim (Meredith), and Susannah (Blake) Reel. He loved being "Bopa" to four spirited grandsons ages 5-1.
Other survivors include his mother; brothers, Michael, Jim (Zalma) and John (Patty); sisters, Margaret (Lucian) Lupinski and Maribeth (Dan) Sellers; in-laws Jim and Colleen Brennan; 10 nephews and two nieces.
