Stuart Isaac Gold, 64, passed away on Sunday May 30t, 2021, at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ surrounded by his family after a longstanding battle with cancer.
Stuart was born on October 2, 1956 in Paterson NJ to Aaron and Frances (Brown) Gold. A lifelong learner, Stuart graduated Fair Lawn High School in 1974, he graduated cum laude from University of Pennsylvania in 1977 then proceeding to graduate from Cornell Law School in 1981 where he met the love of his life, wife, and mother of his children, Diana d’Ambra. Later in life, he would obtain his Masters in American History from Rutgers – Newark and started his doctorate, focusing on slavery and manumission in New Jersey, which illness precluded him from completing.
Stuart’s morals, character, and ethics were reflected in his personal and professional life. While becoming a Partner at Mandelbaum Salsburg, he co-chaired the Bankruptcy and Creditor’s Rights Department and sought to guide all those around him. His love of teaching led him to positions as an adjunct professor of law at Seton Hall Law School as well as teaching Business Law and Legal History at Rutgers University.
He is survived by his wife Diana; his elder brother Larry, his elder sister Ellen; his daughter Emma and her husband Connor Provine; his son, Ben, and his wife Katie. Stuart’s kindness, moral compass, and insatiable curiosity are reflected in all those whom he met. Family, Friends, Students, and others whose life Stuart's life touched are invited to Menorah Chapels, Vauxhall, NJ at 11:30 on Wednesday, June 2nd. May his memory be a blessing.
