Arthur Goldfield

Goldfield, Arthur
Mar. 30, 1919 - Apr. 28, 2013
On April 28 2013, Arthur Goldfield passed away at his home in Sarasota, Florida. Arthur was born in Woodsville, New Hampshire on March 30, 1919. He was a kind, understanding and generous person. He was very understated in his accomplishments and of those he helped along the way. And there were many. He was a teacher of life. He listened. He let you make mistakes because you would learn better that way. He was a business man all his life. From scrap dealer to car dealer. He founded Queen City Steel in 1957. He leaves many family members behind who loved him dearly. He will be missed by all but we all have his memories. A private graveside service was held in Sarasota, Florida on May 8, 2013. Our family would like to acknowlege Debbie Barefoot who has cared for Arthur and became very close to us. Also, Cynthia Palmieri who was one of his biggest advocates. You made dad's last years very special. Those wanting to honor his memory may donate to HIAS 333 Seventh Ave. 16th Floor New York NY 10001 or Temple Emanu-El 151 McIntosh Road Sarasota FL. 34232
