Gregory Mize Obituary
Gregory K. Mize, 66, of North Eastham and Brewster passed away peacefully at his home on November 17, 2012 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was the beloved partner of Jacquelyn Panzer and the loving father of Emily Mize of Chatham, MA, Paul Mize, daughter-in-law Ginger, and grand-daughter Hallie of Melbourne Beach, FL. Doc Mize, as he liked to be called, came to Cape Cod from Chatham, NY to operate Countryside Antiques in Brewster after a career as a Pediatric and Clinical Psychologist for abused children. He was a decorated Vietnam War Marine Staff Sergeant, receiving among his many honors, four Purple Hearts, a Navy Cross and a Bronze Star. Besides his love of antiques and history, he loved sailing and traveling. His home in North Eastham has a spectacular view of Cape Cod Bay, where Greg and Jackie enjoyed many evenings watching the sun set. He was the son of the Harlie (deceased) and Doris Mize of Saint Michaels, Maryland and brother Andrew Mize of Melbourne Beach, FL. Memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, December 1st from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Nickerson Funeral Home, Eldredge Parkway, Orleans with a memorial service beginning at 1pm. Burial will follow in the Orleans Cemetery on Tonset Road. The family would like to thank VNA Hospice for their kindness and support. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to VNA Hospice, 434 Rte 134, Bldg D, South Dennis, Ma 02660.
