We mourn the passing of Daniel J. Goulding, loving husband, father, and grandfather, professor at Oberlin College for 40 years, animated teacher and chair of three different departments over his career, world respected authority and author on Eastern European film, honored by the Yugoslav people for telling the story of their national cinema, contributor to charities, community leader, sparkling wit, lover of theater, and passionate gardener.

He nursed his partner in life, Elizabeth, to the last, then undertook his own final journey with dignity and thoughtfulness of others. He is survived by his sons Michael (and daughter-in-law Margie and grandson David) and Gregory (and son-in-law Kai), who treasured him as their compass and comfort in all things.

Daniel passed on June 16, 2018, at age 82. A memorial celebrating Daniel's extraordinary life will be held at Kendal at Oberlin, Main Building, Heiser Auditorium, 600 Kendal Dr., Oberlin, Ohio, on Saturday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m.

My sincerest sympathy. May the God of all comfort strengthen your family during this time of sorrow. Those who die God keeps in his memory because he cares, they are precious in his eyes. Psalms:116:15
