The memorial service to be held in honor of Dr. Sheldon Goldberg on Sunday, August 28 is being rescheduled for Sunday, September 11 at 2 p.m. out of concern for the hurricane/inclement weather forecasted for this weekend. The service will still be held at Huntingtown High School. Those who knew him – including his patients, colleagues and the community – are invited to join his friends and family in celebration of his life and legacy.
Expected to pay tribute to Dr. Goldberg will be his wife, Dr. Ramona Crowley Goldberg, longtime friend Dr. Mark Kushner, Calvert Memorial Hospital President & CEO Jim Xinis, Kasia Sweeney from the Center for Breast Care at CMH, Rabbi Arnold Saltzman, oncologist Dr. Arati Patel, his brother Dr. Paul Goldberg, breast cancer survivor Robin Henshaw and others.
The 60-year-old Prince Frederick resident died tragically last month in a rafting accident on the Boulder River in Montana, where he was fishing with his wife and a guide, who was also his best friend in Montana. Dr. Goldberg, a highly respected surgeon and medical director of the Center for Breast Care at CMH, devoted his professional life to Calvert County for the past 28 years.
In addition to caring for thousands of patients, he was an accomplished musician and used his talents to benefit many local non-profit organizations including the hospital foundation, Calvert Hospice, the College of Southern Maryland and Caring for Calvert’s Kids, among others.
He was the beloved husband of Dr. Ramona Crowley Goldberg; adored father of Olivia, Alexia, Adam, Michael and Rebecca and cherished brother of Paul (Vicki), Joel (Audrey), Lisa (Glenn) and Jonathan (Victoria).
The family has requested that memorial contributions be sent in Dr. Goldberg’s name to the Center for Breast Care at Calvert Memorial Hospital. Your contribution will help to provide education and care to breast cancer patients through the center where Dr. Goldberg was a founder and medical director.
