Obituary

Sidney Chason, M.D.

Bangor - Sidney Chason, 98, passed away September 29, 2020, at his home surrounded by his family. Sidney is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Eleanor (Bloom) Chason, and his three children and their spouses: Dr. Jay Chason and Natalie of Owings Mills, Maryland; David Chason and Stacey of Falmouth, Massachusetts and Lakewood Ranch, Florida; and Debra Chason Nassau and Jack of Barrington, Rhode Island. He leaves behind seven grandchildren including Eric, Max and Alyson Chason, Abigail and Zachary Chason, and Rachel and Jessica Nassau, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, Dr. Harold Chason, and is survived by his sister-in-law, Annette Chason, and his brother, Dr. Sewall Chason and sister-in-law, Jackie Chason.

Sidney was born October 8, 1921, in Bangor, Maine, the son of Jacob and Eva (Gotlib) Chason.
He graduated from Bangor High School, Bowdoin College, and Boston University School of Medicine. Following medical school, he completed residencies at Boston City Hospital, Lying-In Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts Memorial Hospital in Boston. In 1957, he returned to Bangor where he practiced obstetrics and gynecology for thirty-four years. During his tenure as a physician, Sidney served as Chief of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Sidney had a love of sports and played varsity baseball and basketball at Bangor High School and Bowdoin College. While at Bowdoin, he enjoyed playing baseball with his lifelong friend, Dr. John Woodcock. In 2017, at the age of 95, Sidney was honored to throw out the first pitch at a Bowdoin College baseball game. He also had an enthusiasm for playing golf with a group of long-standing friends.

Sidney was an active member of Congregation Beth Israel and had a deep commitment to Jewish tradition which he passed on to his children and grandchildren. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. He treasured family celebrations and holidays, and he enjoyed sharing stories of his childhood experiences in Bangor.

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, October 1, at noon at the Congregation Beth Israel Cemetery, Severance Rd. off Mt. Hope Ave. in Bangor. Due to COVID-19 Shiva will be private. Contributions in Sidney’s memory may be sent to Congregation Beth Israel, 144 York St., Bangor, ME 04401 or to Northern Light Healthcare Foundation, P.O. Box 931, Bangor, ME 04402-0931.
