Buzz died unexpectedly from cancer treatment complications June 25, 2023, while flying from his home in Hawaii to Seattle.

Born to the late Professor Robert B. Hollander Jr. ’55 and poet Jean Hollander, Buzz was raised in Hopewell, N.J., and attended Hopewell Valley Regional schools. At Princeton, Buzz lived in Butler with a handful of basketball players who remained his closest friends. He was a member of Cap and Gown. After Princeton, he earned a medical degree from UNC School of Medicine and finished at Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency.

His family was the center of his world. He proposed to his wife, Michelle Suber, on the side of a volcano, and poured his heart into their daughters, Eve and Audrey. With Michelle, he founded a thriving direct primary care medical practice. He wrote a Substack on medical issues, helping readers make informed decisions about their health.

Chef, nature lover, and masterful poker player, Buzz will be remembered for his generosity, warmth, and light.

Buzz is survived by his wife, daughters, sister Zaz, brother-in-law Leo, and nieces Josephine and Anneka. In his memory, please wander in the woods with loved ones, devise heartfelt pranks, and revel in the wonder of it all.
