Laszlo Fekete

Laszlo Fekete was born in Budapest, Hungary and lived there until the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. He had just finished his medical training in Internal Medicine and he and his family emigrated from Hungary and arrived in the United States in early 1957.

An opportunity to flee communist Hungary came six weeks after the Hungarian Revolution. They left with only what they could wear or carry. Upon arrival in Boston, he was employed by Massachusetts General Hospital.

After doing medical research for years at the Massachusetts General Hospital, he opened a private practice in Internal Medicine in Natick in 1960. 

Following the death of his first wife, Eva Silasz Fekete, he married Karin Christianson in 1965. He changed his career direction to work as a full time emergency medicine doctor at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Stoughton for many years up to his retirement.

By that time the family had moved to Dux bury.  He had wide-ranging cultural interests including literature, painting and photography. Laszlo always had a keen mind and was an avid reader and crossword puzzle solver. He was a sportsman, and he loved to travel. He was an avid fisherman who enjoyed nothing better than being out on the ocean. This interest was passed along to the next generations. 

Laszlo is survived by his wife Karin, two sons, Thomas and Eric, daughter in law Lisa and four grandchildren, Emma, Samuel, Charles and William. Karin is a decorator and owner of Creative Concepts in Duxbury. Thomas is a physician specializing in infectious diseases. He is the chair of medicine at Temple Universi ty Hospital. Eric is a lacrosse coach and teacher at Avon Old Farm, Lisa is president of Modern Woodcrafts. 

Laszlo elected not to have a formal funeral and asked for no gifts other than people to be kind to one another and to enjoy life to the fullest.
