Sidney Goldman

Sidney Goldman, 93, of Verona died Oct. 25, 2013. He resided in Newark, Maplewood, Livingston, and Verona.

He was a 1942 graduate of the Rutgers School of Pharmacy in Newark.

Mr. Goldman opened a retail pharmacy in a shoebox-sized store in Orange, with his pharmacist wife Doris an equal partner in the business. After a fire destroyed Orange Drugs, he opened a new store in 1966, which became a landmark pharmacy in New Jersey, offering a wide variety of products and services. He sold the business and became an investor in the fledgling PIC Corporation, at that time an importer of mosquito coils which is now being run by his son-in-law.

He entered the United States Army in 1943, received his commission as a second lieutenant, and underwent training in aerial photography and Japanese.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Doris (Kasofsky); two daughters, Lois (Frank) Dyer and Phyllis (Allen) Rubel; five grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

Services were held Oct. 27 with arrangements by Bernheim-Apter-Kreitzman Suburban Funeral Chapel, Livingston. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association or Hospice of New Jersey.
