I'm very sorry to hear of Mr. Goldberg's passing. He was my American History and Anthropology teacher at Lynbrook High, and a great teacher he was. We McNamara's lived right down the street on Lenox Ave. I vividly recall a road trip with Mr. Goldberg and his dog, a collie, to visit Allegheny College in my senior year of HS. Mr. Goldberg was nice enough to mention my meager basketball talents to Allegheny's hoops coach. I stayed with team members in their fraternity and practiced with the team for a few days and attended a few classes. Though I did not attend Allegheny, that trip was high adventure for a suburban kid who had not then traveled much! Mostly, I remember Mr. G's positive personality, serious approach to history, and these wise words of his (I paraphrase): "Whenever you read an account of anything by any author, first consider the author's 'mind set' - his background, his allegiances, etc." I still employ that practice today!

Tom McNamara, Lynbrook HS, Class of 1973

Ahhh Marty, my brother from Allegheny days and beyond! What a treasured human being you have always been, and we thank you for that. Your enthusiasm for life has been inspirational, in challenging times and fun times -- mostly we had fun! We cherish your memory and you will live on -- thanks for those memories! John Anderson

To the Goldberg Family - I am very sorry for your loss. Marty was a true professional in everything that he did. He always had a smile on his face, and a meet to officiate at! HAHA I cherished our talks about everything from food, to track and field, to life. He will be missed. He will be and always is a Gator for life.
Miss you Marty

Marty and I taught Social Studies in adjacent Lynbrook High School, NY classrooms back in the late '60's. As a new teacher to the school, Marty took me under his wing, happily "showed me the ropes" and gave me advice and support that I treasure to this day. Marty was one of those teachers who really loved his students, immediately gained their trust and respect and had such a great sense of humor that often lit up some truly boring faculty meetings! I was very sad to hear of Marty's passing, but then thought of the thousands of young lives he influenced by his guidance, dedication, professionalism and love of coaching and mentoring. To Marty's family, I want to extend my deepest sympathy for your loss. For all the love he gave I'm sure he received so much in return. Finally, as Marty's classroom neighbor and fellow eraser thrower at talkative students (he had great aim!), I can state with confidence they don't make teachers like Marty any more, He was indeed one of a kind and it was my privilege to work with him for the time we shared together as friends and colleagues.
