Obituary for Robert Goldman

Robert Goldman, known to friends as Bob, passed away on July 8, 2019 at the age of 96. Bob was born in 1922 to Alma (Belcher) and Ray Goldman, in Jeffersonville, Indiana. He graduated from Marion (Indiana) High School in 1940. He joined the Navy in 1941 and attended submarine school at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station. He was selected for Officer Candidate School at the University of Texas in Austin, and was commissioned an ensign in the Naval Reserves in 1945.

After his Navy service, Bob married Mary Rose Hanna, and began a career in the auto parts business in Noblesville, Indiana. In 1965, Bob bought Sparton Distributing Company on Main Street in Bowling Green and renamed the store Goldman Car Parts. The business moved to the Pearl Street location in 1972. Bob sold the store to Larry Book in 1982.

Bob was an avid golfer and golfed in the BG Country Club league and the BG University league for 41 years. He loved to read and to travel. History and archeology were huge passions. Nothing thrilled him more than visiting museums in foreign countries.

Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 34 years, Mary Rose Goldman in 1979, and by his wife of 37 years, Shirley Mae Goldman in September, 2018. Bob is survived by his daughters Christine George, and Lisa Doyle (Dennis), grandson Devin Doyle (Amanda) and great-granddaughter Gemma. He is also survived by stepchildren Jane (Dave) Shively, Martha Bishop (Ed Newman), Barb (Fuzzy) David, John (Cathy) Bishop, and step-grandchildren Carrie Hancock, Kris Hiser, Jeff Hiser, Danielle Bishop Rueda-Fabila and Addie Bishop. Bob was preceded in death by step-grandson Ben Shively.
