Dr. Milton David Sarlin, 65, of Marietta passed away Wednesday, March 11, 2015.
Born to Shirley Honigman Sarlin and Ralph Sarlin (of blessed memory) in Greenville, S.C., he completed his undergraduate studies at Emory University and received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. He completed his family practice residency at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. Together with his wife, Sandy, Dr. Sarlin developed Sarlin Wellness Way after practicing many years of family medicine. In an expanded medical practice, Dr. Sarlin focused not only on family medicine, but also on health promotion and wellness and the specialty of bariatric medicine (weight loss) for almost 20 years. He was an active member of Congregation Or Hadash in Sandy Springs and B’nai B’rith. A devoted father, brother and son, Dr. Sarlin’s interests included camping, canoeing, music, and science fiction books and movies, especially “Star Trek.”
He is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Sandy; daughters Elana and Mitsi Sarlin; sisters Becky Lou Alper (Jonathan), Janet Duncan (Lewis) and Linda Chidsey; nieces Moriah Alper, Hillary Duncan and Morgan Chidsey; nephews Eli Alper (Rachel), Gideon Alper (Dallin McBride), Miles Duncan and Matthew Chidsey; and his granddogs, Pixie and Nudnik.
We would like to thank his doctors and nurses at the Emory Winship Cancer Center for their care and devotion.
