Goldberg Remembered as Devoted Friend in Memorial

Tuesday, 05 May 2015 06:11 PM

Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Goldberg was remembered on Tuesday as a loyal friend, devoted family member and the ballast to his wife, Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook Inc. and author of the best- selling book “Lean In.”

Goldberg, chief executive officer of Palo Alto, California- based SurveyMonkey, died on Friday while on vacation in Punta Mita, Mexico, at age 47. A memorial service held on the campus of Stanford University was attended by friends, family and employees from SurveyMonkey and Facebook, including Mark Zuckerberg.

“As heartbroken as I am, I am equally grateful,” Sandberg said in an emotional speech. “Even in these last few days of completely unexpected hell, the darkest and saddest moments of my life, I still know how lucky I am.

‘‘Dave gave me the experience of being completely understood, truly supported and deeply and utterly loved,’’ she said. ‘‘Dave was my rock. When I got upset, he stayed calm. When I was worried, he said, ‘we’ll be OK.’ When I wasn’t sure what to do, he figured it out. I sure could use him right about now.”

The service was attended by luminaries from Silicon Valley, Washington and Hollywood, including Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger; Ben Affleck; Arianna Huffington; and Timothy Geithner, the former U.S. Treasury Secretary. To open the ceremony, U2’s Bono sang the hit “One,” with lyrics slightly altered for the Jewish ceremony.
