Dr. David Myer Goldberg passed away peacefully on November 2, 2022. He is survived by his loving wife Pearl, daughters Susan and Tanya (Benjamin), and grandchildren Jonathan, Miriam, Rachel, Nicky, and Adam. David was the first Jewish student to be elected President of the student union at the University of Glasgow, where he completed a medical degree and Ph.D. when he was not playing rugby or boxing. He was head of the Departments of Clinical Biochemistry at both the Hospital for Sick Children and the University of Toronto and a widely published scientific researcher. He had a lifelong love of the arts and gastronomy, especially wine, and an insatiable curiosity for travelling around the world with his beloved Pearl. A gifted raconteur, his stories rewarded the listener’s patience with an account rich in detail and humour, enhanced by his particular touch of embellishment. His generous spirit, wit, and zest for life endeared him to many friends and he will be greatly missed by his family members. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
Shiva will be at 44 Grangemill Crescent on Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6, with visitation from 7 pm to 9 pm and services at 7:30 pm.
