Dr. Howard Saul, a 67-year-old doctor who was a member of the Chabad community in Cherry Hill, NJ, tragically passed away on Friday after going missing while scuba diving in Hollywood Beach, Florida.
He was searched for by US Coast Guard boats and helicopters along with the assistance of Hatzalah South Florida, after he went missing.
Dr. Saul was Board Certified in Gynecologic Oncology and treated women with gynecologic cancer in South Jersey for around 20 years and had been involved in many pioneering cancer treatment studies.
Dr. Saul was known as a joyous and friendly person with an open home, and was beloved by the many who knew him. He was a devoted doctor who saved countless lives. He also had many hobbies, and was a great fan of magic tricks, which he would use to cheer and calm his patients.
He recently retired and moved to Florida.
He is survived by his wife Gail and children Rochel (and Sruli) Brooker and Michael Saul, and grandchildren.
