Stanley David Goldman of Whippany died Feb. 3, 2020. Born in Camden in 1926, he lived there until age 16.
Mr. Goldman began to study engineering at age 16 at Rutgers University before enlisting in the U.S. Navy at 18 and serving until June 1946, at which time he returned to Rutgers, this time as a business major, on the Newark campus. He graduated in 1949.
He ran a wholesale candy business, Dandy Candy, that he had formed in his last years of college. In 1965, while still running the business, he began Seton Hall Law School law school at night to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming an attorney. He graduated in 1969 and established a debt collection law firm, initially in Livingston and then in Montville, which he ran until his retirement in 1972. He continued in his retirement to do legal work as a mediator and arbitrator.
He was an avid runner who completed several marathons. He was a lifelong member of Temple Beth Shalom in Livingston.
Predeceased by his wife, Rita (Morrow), in 2016, he is survived by his son, Stevan (Nina); two daughters, Faith and Debby (Howard); four grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
