Goldberg, Marvin E., MD Age 93 of Minneapolis, died peacefully on October 7, 2019. Monnie, as he was called by many, was an amazing, talented man, who was modest about his accomplishments. He excelled in everything he did, and those who met him, loved him. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. Max W. Goldberg and Francis Halpern Goldberg, and his sister Miriam Ruth Goldberg. He graduated from North High School in Minneapolis and volunteered for the US Navy where he was a radar technician in Germany during World War II. He returned to the University of Minnesota where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the College of Liberal Arts. He then graduated first in his class from the University of Minnesota Medical School, and was voted into the honorary medical fraternity, Alpha Omega Alpha. Following his graduation from medical school, he studied Radiology under Professor Leo Rigler at the University of Minnesota. His career took him to Mt. Sinai hospital in Minneapolis where he spent the next ten years as a radiologic consultant. When Mt. Sinai hospital closed, he returned to the University of Minnesota as a professor of Radiology with a focus in the field of nuclear radiology. His lifelong interest in music led him to co-found the University of Minnesota Health Sciences Orchestra. In addition to playing the violin, he also painted an extensive collection of watercolors. The family wants to extend its sincere gratitude to his caregivers Carolyn Duflatte & Navell Townley. Graveside service will be held Thursday afternoon, Oct. 10, 2pm at the Minneapolis Jewish Cemetery at 7032 Penn Avenue South, Richfield. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the University of Minnesota Foundation directed to the Department of Radiology: University of Minnesota Foundation McNamara Alumni Center 200 Oak Street SE, Suite 500 Minneapolis, MN 55455-2010 Hodroff-Epstein 612-871-1234
