Celebrating constituent Bill Ornstein's 101st birthday
Maisons Fleuries reception returns to a live in-person format

In Memoriam: Donald Goldberg was a dedicated family man

Our sympathies go out to the family of Donald Goldberg, who passed away on November 12 at the age of 92,

Donald was the younger brother of former City Councillor Isadore Goldberg. He passed away almost three years ago and I remember sharing memories with the family at the shiva at Donald and Jeannie's condo.

Donald and Jeannie.


I was proud to serve as Donald’s councillor the past 17 years.  His  loving daughter Joy is also my constituent.  A few months ago I bumped into Donald and his wife of 65 years  Jeannie at a restaurant

Donald was the first of his family to go to university. He graduated from Sir George Williams in 1952, where he was the captain of the basketball team. His university education was the foundation for his financial career. He started his own business and served his clients with integrity.

In his obituary, Donald was described as  “a multifaceted person who appreciated everything life had to offer. While he loved the outdoors, sports, time spent at the YMHA, being the MC, planning an event, and connecting with his large community of friends, his family was always the most important part of his life. His love, generosity, dedication to continuous learning, Jewish traditions, and love of nature have been passed down to the next generations.”

“He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family with a beautiful send-off,” Jeannie shared with friends. “ We are all so grateful for the many meaningful years spent together, and from the joy he brought to all of our lives.  Most of you know his famous joke of living until 100, ‘as medical research shows that very few people die over the age of 100.’ Last night he stated  ‘well, I'm not going to live to be 100, but I was pretty darn close.’ He lived an amazing life, and his memories will be carried forward through our children and grand-children. “
