Douglas E. Macomber

Douglas E. Macomber, 71, of Harwich passed away unexpectedly at his home on November 7, 2022, due to complications from an illness. He was the son of the late Elliot and Grace Macomber of Marion.

            Doug was an Emmy-award winning cameraman in the Investigative Reporting Division of WBZ Boston. His love for photography and art of all kinds followed him throughout his life. He held great appreciation for the beauty of nature and wildlife and capturing local scenery through photography. In his later life, Doug thoroughly enjoyed working at local farmers markets and engaging in intriguing conversations with his many Uber riders. Anyone who was lucky enough to know Doug appreciated his kindness, humor, and unwavering loyalty to his friends and family.

            Doug is survived by his siblings, Beth Simmons of Fairhaven, Leslie Macomber of Marion, Christine Macomber and her partner Fred Klein of Mattapoisett, Steven Macomber and his wife Becky of Marion, Lisa Macomber and her husband John Malkoski of Seattle, WA; many nieces and nephews; several grand nieces and nephews; as well as many beloved friends whom he considered family.

            A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers,  donations may be made in Doug’s name to the Human Rights Campaign.org.

    Doug has been a good friend of many years … a partner in crime, craziness and outrageous laughter! Mark and I are so saddened by his passing.

      Hi Randy, I’m glad someone was able to reach you. I’m still processing this heartbreaking news. Doug and I had arranged to have lunch the day he passed. I spoke with another ‘BZ colleague, Jack Stokinger, and we both reflected on crazy, wonderful times spent with Doug. He is gone far too soon. Hope you and Mark are well.
