Jack Goldenberg
Jack L. Goldenberg passed away May 19 after living 93 years in Somerset.
He was the son of Abe and Pauline Lerner Goldenberg. 
He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Frances “Frankie” Jaffe Goldenberg; one daughter, Jan Fischer and son-in-law, Steven J. Fischer; one son, Glen J. Goldenberg and his wife Terri Vanhook Goldenberg; grandchildren, Dr. Julie Fischer and husband Mark Lacy, Jeremy Fischer and Gail Hurt, the Reverend Jaime Goldenberg and wife Sandra Forrester, Grant Goldenberg and wife Jennifer Mason, Jordon, Marc and Jon Goldenberg; and the following great-grandchildren: Emma and Mira Lacy, Levi, Jude and Anna Grace Goldenberg, and Ian and Katie Goldenberg.
After Jack graduated from Somerset High School and University of Kentucky, he joined the Army and served four years during World War II. He completed his service having attained the rank of Major.
He then returned home to Somerset to join his parents at Goldenberg’s Furniture. He focused on expanding the business for the third generation.
Jack, determined to give back to his home town, became President of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club, and the Chamber of Commerce where he was instrumental in bringing the General Electric Glass Plant to Somerset. He participated, through the Rotary Club, in the first Polio drive in Somerset.
Jack was instrumental in promoting Lake Cumberland tourism along with his friend John Prather. He and his family enjoyed having one of the first Cruisers on Lake Cumberland when it officially opened. The lake was always one of the family’s greatest pleasures together and many memories were created and shared with friends over the years.
Jack was involved in Scouting and as a young man achieved the highest rank of Eagle Scout and as an adult helped lead the Boy Scout Troop 79 for decades. He was awarded the Silver Beaver Award, which is the highest honor bestowed upon an individual for dedication and service to the organization. Jack’s love and devotion to scouting was passed on to his son, Glen, who received his Eagle Scout Award along with all of his grandsons, Jeremy Fischer, Jaime, Grant, Jordan, Marc, and Jon Goldenberg. This is a rather amazing accomplishment in that only around two percent of all people that join scouting achieve the highest rank of Eagle, which is a true testimony to the Patriarch of the family for the legacy he left through these experiences.
Jack spent his retirement years enjoying his hobbies of artwork, photography, bird watching, woodworking, and stamp collecting, and also the simple pleasures of entertaining with friends and family was always intertwined in his daily life.
Jack lived a long and wonderful life with the love and support of his true love, Frankie, for over 70 years. His many accomplishments with family, business, community service and scouting has influenced so many lives that the memories he created will live on in all of those his life touched.
