COHEN, Seymour Internationally Known Scientist and Researcher Dr. Seymour S. Cohen of 10 Carrot Hill Road, Woods Hole, died at home on December 30, 2018 at the age of 101. In 1963, Dr. Cohen was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he was elected to the US National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in 1967. He was nominated several times for the Nobel Prize and is therefore included among the group of people who hold the "Forty-First Chair" (scientists deemed worthy candidates for the Nobel Prize by the Nobel committee). He was the recipient of numerous national and international awards for his research. Dr. Cohen is survived by his two children, Michael and Sara, and their spouses Margarita Gutman and James Kessler, by five grandchildren: Nicole, Jonah, Rosa, Pippi, and Pamela, and five great-grandchildren: Stefano, Adrian, Rocco, Avery, and Ramona. A graveside service was held on Wednesday, January 2, at 3:00 at the Church of the Messiah cemetery in Woods Hole. A celebration of Dr. Cohen's life will be held next summer in Woods Hole.
