Dr. Stanley Marshall Goldberg, DDS, 85, of Scranton, died early Thursday at home. He was preceded in death by his wife, the former Carol Goldstein, in 1989.
Born in Bethlehem, PA, he was the son of the late Edward and Mary Allman Goldberg. He was a graduate of Franklin and Marshall College and Temple University School of Dentistry. He had a distinguished 40 year dental career, with leadership positions in the Scranton and Pennsylvania Dental Societies. In his spare time, he gave free dental care to those in need.
Stanley proudly served as a Captain in the Air Force in the 1950s and was honorably discharged. After September 11, 2001, he was a volunteer in the Marine Corps, serving as a dentist at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. He was a long-time member of Temple Israel and Glen Oak Country Club. Referred to affectionately by many as “Dr. Love,” Stanley was known for his quick wit, sense of humor and love for his family and close friends.
Stanley is survived by his children, Gary Goldberg and wife Bonnie, Lori Goldberg, Nancy Sebag and husband Sammy, and Michael Goldberg and wife Alison; his grandchildren Lindsay (Steven), Adam (Sage), Alan, Cara, Lexi, and Jared; his sister, Roberta Glassman (Harvey Stuart); sister-in-law and brother-in-law Margery and Paul Rosenberg.
Following a graveside service, Shiva will be held at his home from 1 to 5 PM on Sunday. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in his memory to either Temple Israel or the Wounded Warrior Project.
