Dr. David M. Goldstein, PhD
Dr. David M. Goldstein, PhD of Cherry Hill, NJ died October 5, 2022. Beloved husband of Terry Goldstein; they were married for 56 years. Devoted father of Dr. Sara (Dr. Paul Boxer) Goldstein and Joshua Goldstein. Dear brother of the late Cookie (the late Dr. Martin) Frankel, Dr. Allan (Linda) Goldstein, Marcia (Samuel Jones) Goldstein, and Dr. Jerry (Barbara) Goldstein. Adoring grandfather of Noah, Lilah, and Maya. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. David had a long and generative career as a clinical psychologist, was an accomplished tennis player, and had an endearing habit of telling very bad jokes. He authored numerous academic book chapters and articles, and he taught Psychology at the University level for many years. He was incredibly kindhearted, nonjudgmental, and generous – somebody that friends and family turned to for advice, solace, and humor. He welcomed homeless pets into his house when his children brought them home, loved baseball (frequently entertaining his family with tales of his Babe Ruth League victories), and became a vegetarian in his 50s. David gave it the fight of his lifetime in his 4-year long battle with Cancer and participated in two clinical trials along the way, contributing to science until the end. David’s compassion, wisdom, and empathy will stay with those who knew him long after he has departed. Relatives and friends are invited Sunday, October 9, 2022 beginning 1:30 pm to PLATT MEMORIAL CHAPELS, Inc. 2001 Berlin Rd. Cherry Hill, NJ where funeral services will begin promptly at 2:00 pm. The service will also be live streamed on plattmemorial.com. Contributions may be made to Best Friends Animal Society, or to any other charity whose main purpose is to make the world a better place.
