    • OBITUARY

      David Gary Goldwasser, 85, of Dunwoody died on May 23, 2021 after an extended battle with cancer. David was the son of the late Harry and May (Friedman) Goldwasser. He is survived by his sister Marcia (Stuart) Naterman and brother Michael (Sonya) Goldwasser. David is survived by 11 nieces and nephews: Andrea (David) Fine, Seth (Catalina) Naterman, Lesley Naterman, Harry Goldwasser, Ellen Goldwasser, Marla Goldwasser, Stella (Steve) Prescott, Marshall Fine, Allison Fine, Zachary Naterman, and Jackson Prescott.

      David was born at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta on August 7, 1935. David attended Smiley and SM Inman Elementary and Grady High Schools and would reminisce about his experiences riding the streetcar to nursery school and his AZA friendships and activities. David attended the University of Georgia and was a member of Alpha Epsilon Pi before returning to Atlanta to run the family business when his father became ill. David ran the Brooklyn Loan Company with his sister and brother-in-law until they retired and closed the business in 2000. Upon retirement, David mentored young entrepreneurs on how to run a pawn shop, traveling and was an active participant with Pinch Hitters and at B’nai Torah.

      David served in the Army Reserves Unit 3283 from 1955-1978 with increasing responsibilities including serving as Secretary to Colonel Harry Faulkner. He was responsible for all the records and training other reservists.

      David had a love for travel, especially to Las Vegas and Japan, and was particularly fascinated by Japanese culture and history. David loved to tinker with mechanical equipment and appliances believing that WD40 and screwdrivers could fix almost anything. Even in his final days there was a can of WD40 on the table next to his computer.

      David will be remembered by his family for his wit and inability to arrive on time (often arriving in time for dessert) as well as his love for family and all things chocolate. The funeral will be held at Greenwood Cemetery at 2:30 on May 24. Dressler's Jewish Funeral Care
