Remembering Dave Goldberg

The husband of Facebook COO and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was his wife’s greatest champion and support

They were Silicon Valley’s power couple. But on May 1, SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg died suddenly at the age of 47, and his wife, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, lost the man she called “a true partner.” “Dave is my best friend, closest adviser, dedicated coparent and the love of my life,” Sandberg, 45, wrote in her 2013 bestseller Lean In. “He supported me every step of the way, as he always does, with patience, great insight, humor and love.” Goldberg was vacationing with his family in Mexico when he collapsed while exercising at his resort’s gym, apparently suffering a severe wound to the head, a Mexican government official told the Associated Press. He was rushed to the hospital but died of head trauma and blood loss. The entrepreneur had worked at Yahoo before joining SurveyMonkey in 2009, turning it into a company worth $2 billion. He and Sandberg had two children together. In Lean In she described how they balanced parenting duties: “We are never at 50-50 at any given moment—perfect equality is hard to define or sustain—but we allow the pendulum to swing back and forth between us,” said Sandberg, an impassioned advocate for women in the workplace, as was Goldberg. “Every stage of life has its challenges. Fortunately I have Dave to figure it out with me.”

PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT GIVING BACK

Robert Patrick

The Scorpion actor, 56, lends support to America’s troops through the USO

My family’s history [in the armed forces] goes back to the Revolutionary War; my grandfather, cousins, uncle—it’s in my blood. When I was a kid, it was always a dream of mine to go on a USO tour; now my involvement has spanned over a decade. I have clear pictures in my head of the day I arrived in Iraq on one of the tours. Meeting these young adults, some who can’t legally drink a beer but they’re fighting on our behalf, is profound. On another trip, to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, I met men and women that had been scarred by war and had lost limbs. One individual that I met had lost both legs and both arms. All he kept saying over and over was, “I just want to get back and be with my men.” I think that’s awe-inspiring. These troops are willing to put their life on the line for the love of their country and to protect the freedom you and I share—that’s something.
