SADDLE RIVER, N.J. — Lawrence “Larry” Goldman, 84, Wyckoff, N.J., died peacefully here at Villa Marie Claire Hospice on April 3, after a long battle due to complications from a stroke.
Goldman graduated from New York University, Stern School of Business. Described as a tenacious self-starter with strong business acumen, he, along with his brothers, created and developed United Wire Hanger Industries, a supplier of plastic hangers, wire hangers and paper products.
“He served as CEO and president for 50 years, employing 250 people who began the journey with him, many who are still there today,” his published obituary notes.
Philanthropy was close to his heart as he dedicated support to many civic and charitable organizations, be they in New Jersey, New York, or Israel.
Goldman loved traveling, fine dining and sports. He could often be found on the golf course and card room at Preakness Hills Country Club in Wayne, N.J., where he was a longtime member.
Survived him are his wife of 61 years, Cynthia; three children, Peter, Michael, and Nancy; and five grandchildren.
Funeral services were conducted April 5 at Robert Schoem’s Menorah Chapel, Paramus, N.J.
Donations in Goldman’s memory can be made to JDRF.
