Stan Goldberg, a long-time artist for the comic book series Archie and a colorist for Marvel superheroes, died Sunday. He was 82 years old.
“Stan touched many lives through his artwork but was also a dear friend, beloved husband, loving father and doting grandfather,” his family said in a statement. “Through the years, countless fans shared how much his work meant to them and what a thrill it was to meet him or have a piece of his work. Stan felt just as strongly about all the people he met and would fondly recall the stories that fans would share with him.”
Goldberg and his wife, Pauline, spent their summers in the Hampton Bays and their winters in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Goldberg illustrated Dan’s Papers covers, and he was an annual contributor to East End Hospice’s box art auction.
A graveside funeral is planned Tuesday, September 2, at 2 p.m. at Beth Moses Cemetery, Wellwood Avenye, West Babylon. The Goldbergs will sit shiva at the home of Pauline Goldberg, 162-41 Powells Cove Blvd, #2P, Beechhurst, immediately after the funeral. Additionally, condolence visits are welcome Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to East End Hospice, 481 Westhampton Riverhead Road, PO Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, NY 11978.
