William “Bill” Goldstein of Marshfield, MA, formerly of Boca Raton, Fla. died on May 25, at the age of 90. Bill was a U.S. Army veteran who served in the Philippines where he saw heavy action and was wounded. He had a long and very successful career in the food industry starting as the first sales rep and retiring as executive vice president of Food Enterprises, the largest food brokerage in New England at the time.

He was extremely well respected in the industry, and it was said that Bill’s handshake was worth more than any written contract. Bill was a humble, hard-working, kind and very generous man who supported a number of charities throughout his life. To be one of Bill’s friends or family was to know that he would do almost anything to help in a time of need. Above all, he was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

He leaves his beloved wife of 66 years, Lillian; along with his daughter, Marcy Goldstein Amore, and her husband, John Amore of Marshfield, MA and his son Stuart Goldstein and his wife, Wendy, Kleiner of Green Creek.
