Gershon M. Goldberg, 96, died Jan. 2 in Roslindale, Massachusetts.
“When his children were small, my father, a photographic chemist, bought equipment for developing black-and-white film at home. He said he always figured one of his sons would someday be interested in learning how to do it. His daughter, however, was the one to develop that interest, and he was proud of that. He also would have loved that pun. He loved wordplay and never lost his talent for doing any word puzzle. He enjoyed the Boston Celtics, the St. Louis Cardinals, Pennsylvania State University sports, and Dixieland jazz—and I loved nothing more than enjoying them with him.”—Elise Goldberg, daughter
