Dr David Gold DDS
Born 1927 in New York City, NY
Died 2/16/2015 in Syracuse, NY

Dr. David Gold, 88, died Monday morning at Menorah Park. Born in New York City to Abraham and Sadie Gold, he was a graduate of the University of Maryland Dental School. While serving in the Army Air Corps he met his future wife Annette and fell In love. They were married in 1949 and settled in Stamford, CT where he established his dental practice. They raised their daughters and enjoyed a good life. They were married for over 65 years. They loved traveling to Jamaica many times and had wonderful memories. Boating was a passion from the very beginning of their life together. They owned several boats over the years, cruising on Long Island Sound, heading to Florida on the intercostal, and through the locks to Canada. Upon retiring they spent half their time in North Palm Beach, enjoying their terrace overlooking the intercostal and watching the boats go by; the other half of the year they came back to Stamford. They moved to The Oaks of DeWitt in 2007.

Dave was a wonderful, "old time" dentist who was loved by his patients. His work was important to him, but could not compare to his love for his family. He will be remembered for his humor, his outgoing friendly nature, and an innate ability to strike up a conversation with a stranger and walk away as a friend.

He was predeceased by his sister, Thelma Katz.

His family includes his wife, Annette; their daughters, Ellen (Bob) Tartakoff of Jamesville, NY, and Joanne (Jodie Shapiro) Gold of Florence, MA; their grandchildren, Daniel (Karen) Tartakoff, Joseph Tartakoff; and Sadie Gold-Shapiro.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Friday at Sisskind Funeral Chapel. Friends may visit with the family Friday, from 10 to 11 a.m. at the funeral chapel, 3175 E. Genesee Street. Burial will be in Beth El Cemetery. Contributions may be made to The Employee Fund at Menorah Park.
