Battalion Chief Lawrence H. Goldberg, of Baltimore, MD, passed away on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at the age of 50. Born in Baltimore in 1969, Chief Goldberg graduated high school from Loyola Blakefield in Towson and attended Wheeling Jesuit College in West Virginia. Larry met his beloved wife, Deborah Ann, in 1996 and they were married in April of the next year. They are the proud parents of their daughter Micaela and son Zachary.
Larry began his firefighting and Paramedic career with the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company in August of 1988, ultimately becoming the Chief officer and a Life member. In 1991, he was hired as a Paramedic with the Baltimore City Fire Department in his first paid position, and quickly moved up the ranks to become a Lieutenant, Captain and then a Battalion Chief. In addition, Chief Goldberg taught for the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute for over 25 years. He was a diverse instructor for MRFI and taught classes ranging from firefighting, management, hazardous materials, rescue specialties, and emergency medical services.
Larry relished everything about his career, including the comradery, fighting fires, saving lives, and helping people in some of their most desperate times. In his free time, he enjoyed camping, golf, and being with family and friends. Chief Goldberg has had many accomplishments throughout his career and received many awards and accolades, most recently, the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company Firefighter of the Year Award for 2019. He was also awarded the J. Donald Mooney Training Award from the Baltimore County Volunteer Fireman’s Association for 2019, which recognizes all his contributions to training and instruction over his career. However, he would most like to be remembered for helping people and his dedication to service.
Chief Goldberg is survived by his wife, Deborah A. Goldberg (nee Yale), children, Micaela E. Goldberg and Zachary A. Goldberg, siblings, Sharon (Steven) Solimini, Debbie (Mark) Palardy, and Patricia Lamond (Rafael Torres), parents Barbara N. Goldberg, and Marvin and Mary L.
