Goldsmith, Joachim

Sept. 28, 1942 — Oct. 13, 2013

Joachim “Goldy” Goldsmith — beloved husband, father, brother, zaydeh, Sac State professor of criminal justice and neighborhood consiglieri — died on Oct. 13, 2013, of leukemia.

Born in 1942 in New Hampshire to Holocaust refugees, Goldy lived in foster homes from the time he was 4, was orphaned at age 11 and landed at the Milton Hershey School, an orphanage for boys. Despite a childhood spent in want of love and support, Goldy created a loving and nurturing home with Janet Krone, his wife of 42 years, for their three children, Meredith, Allison and Bernie.

His positive influence extended to the countless students he advised, young people for whom he was a surrogate father, and so many more, mentoring and giving to all who crossed his path. During his time at UC Davis Law School, he started a bookstore in a janitor’s closet for his fellow students, and launched a voter registration drive that ultimately won students a voice in city and county politics.

As a professor at Sac State, Goldy initiated the degree program in Fire Service Management. He established an external degree program for California law enforcement and correctional officers to take college courses where they worked, from Santa Maria to Sacramento, allowing them to achieve a higher level of professionalism and benefitting the communities they served. Goldy passed away surrounded by his loving family, and will live on through the lives he has touched and good works he has done.

A memorial service will begin at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, at Temple B’nai Israel, 3600 Riverside Blvd. in Sacramento. To honor his life of providing for those in need, attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for donation to the Central Downtown Food Basket.
