Born in Chicago Ill., he was the son of the late Edward and Margaret Rataczjak Goldman. He graduated from Hyde Park High School, Chicago.

Also surviving are two daughters Linda Foster and her husband William, Jefferson NJ; and Laura Price, Hopatcong NJ; a son John Goldman, West Monroe NY; and seven grandchildren.
