Roland Goldberg Obituary

Roland Pierre Goldberg, 66, of Farmingdale, NJ, passed away on February 16, 2024, after a short valiant battle with cancer, surrounded by his family and best friend at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York.

Roland was born in Neptune, NJ on September 9, 1957. He was raised in West Long Branch, where he attended Frank Antonides School, and graduated from Shore Regional High School. He moved to Ocean Township where he met his beloved wife, Angela. They lived there for several years before settling in Farmingdale, NJ for the last 21 years. Roland was a hard and dedicated worker and took great pride in his life-long career in the building products industry, where he made many long term friendships, and was well regarded and respected for his great wealth of knowledge and expertise in the industry. He was currently working as a salesperson at Marvic Supply/SRS Distribution in Blackwood, NJ. Earlier in his career, he worked for many years as a Territory Manager at GAF, where he was top in sales and won many awards including the President’s Club award multiple times.

Roland was known for his easy-going, fun-loving, loyal, kind, and generous ways. He was funny, mischievous, and had an adventurous spirit. He adored his family and friends, cherished the outdoors, and was beloved by all who knew him. He loved spending as much time as he could with his children and was a very involved Dad. He was often seen at Kristi’s dance recitals and horse shows, and at Danny’s baseball games and camping with his Boy Scout troop when the kids were younger. He was always available to lend a hand with family and friends, and very giving of his time if anyone needed help. He also loved the NY Giants. His hobbies included camping, fishing, hunting, boating, golfing, snorkeling, and sitting around the bonfire. He was an all-around outdoorsman who enjoyed taking family trips, watching old movies and making his famous hot sauce.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Angela, his loving daughter Kristi Meibauer and her fiancée Justin Krass, his loving son Daniel, his brother Bill Goldberg and wife Judy, his sister Yvonne O’Shea, his mother-in-law Jean Bates, his sister-in-law Pam LaBell and partner Dr. Joseph Calabro, his brother-in-law Shawn Bates and wife Dana, his nephews Billy and his wife Hannah, and Jason Goldberg, his niece Jennifer O’Shea, his great nieces and nephew Chloe O’Shea, and Wylie and Isla Goldberg, his best friend Tony Ferrugia, as well as many other nieces and nephews, and several other family members and friends. Roland was preceded in death by his father, Peter Goldberg, his mother, Elise Craft (Graye), his father-in-law Donald Bates, his brother-in-law Jeremiah O’Shea, and brother-in-law Jim LaBell.
