Feldman, 56, of Beachwood, Ohio was found at the America's Best Value Inn in the 14000 block of Brookpark Road. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office has not released an official cause of death.
Feldman was the section head of anesthesia for the Cole Eye Institute and director of the Cole Eye Institute Operating Rooms at the Cleveland Clinic, according to the clinic's website.
A hotel employee called police at 7:17 p.m after a woman called the front desk from Feldman's room and said he was unresponsive, Brook Park police Capt. Thomas Dickel said.
Feldman was not breathing when first responders arrived minutes later. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
By all accounts, he was a sound principled libertarian and would have been a major improvment over the eventual 2016 Libertarian Party nominee, Gary, "Free the Weed" Johnson.
