June 21, 1914 ~ July 3, 2002
Jacob Goldstein, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend passed away on Wednesday July 3, 2002 following the love of his life of 66 years, Rose, who passed away this June 1st.
He was born on June 21, 1914 in Peabody, Massachusetts. He is survived by his five children Arlene (Osamu) Maeda, Madelyn Arugay, Michael Robert Goldstein, Karen (Robin) Liebig and Richard Goldstein; his brothers Reuben Goldstein and Melvin Goldstein; Grandchildren Steven (Janet) Maeda, Brian Maeda, Kevin Maeda, Lorraine (Darin) Orenstein, Aaron Arugay, Ron Goldstein, Ali (Mike) Dilger, David (Amanda) Goldstein, Christopher Goldstein and Jessica Goldstein; Great-Grandchildren Nicole Maeda, Hayley Maeda, Courtney Maeda, Andrew Dilger, Chloe Dilger, Hannah Grace Goldstein and Samuel Ross Orenstein and his dog Beauty.
He loved his wife Rose, more than life itself. When she passed away a little more than a month ago he knew in his heart he could not go on without her. Even though he tried to stay for his children whom he also loved, he knew that he would not be whole until he was together with his Rosie again. Jack connected and bonded with people who frequented the bar he owned for 32 years and was always very generous and giving to all in need. Jack was a loving and caring person and enjoyed telling stories about the olden days. Jack's Place was known as the oldest nationally recognized ''cop bar'' in America, by the City of Los Angeles.
