In Memoriam: Jack Goldner, 1920 – 2010 

The Concordia community deeply mourns the passing of longtime professor and counsellor Jack Goldner on Feb. 27.

He is known to have left an indelible mark on first-year students at Sir George Williams University as evidenced by the heartfelt comments posted online from across the country. One former student feels Goldner embodied the Sir George spirit of intellect, humour and caring that created a welcoming environment in which to foster high-quality academics.

He leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 61 years, Leona (née Lazarus), and his children and their spouses — Emily and Saul Markowicz, Lois Goldner, Audrey and Gordon Sauve, Eric Goldner and Edith Simard — brother Moe, late brother Harry as well as five grandchildren.

He will be fondly remembered for his sense of humour, kindness and his devotion to his family, who gratefully acknowledge the wonderful care given by the medical staff at the Montreal General Hospital, 13 East.

A funeral service was held March 2 and he was buried at Memorial Park Cemetery. Donations in his memory may be made to the Montreal General Hospital Foundation (attn: 13 East), 514-934-8230. A guest book is available online until March 31.
