95-year-old Dr. Fitzalbert Marius of Fresno, CA appears on episode #509 of Hometown Heroes, airing February 2-4, 2018. Born in Panama and raised in Harlem, NY, Dr. Marius served with the 725th Medical Sanitary Company in the Pacific Theater during World War II.
A noted surgeon who participated in more than 15,000 heart operations, Dr. Marius is also an accomplished musician, poet, author, tailor, painter, golfer, and teacher, among other things. It’s hard to find anyone who better epitomizes the headline of a 2008 Fresno State daily Collegian article about him: “Renaissance Man.”
