Dr. Carol Goldenthal
Dr. Carol Goldenthal (December 31, 1919), 98 years of age, of West Hartford, CT, passed away on Monday, June 18, 2018. He was the beloved husband of Jolene (Bleich) Goldenthal for 72 years. Born in Hartford, CT, he was the son of the late Moses and Betty (Segal) Goldenthal.

Dr. Goldenthal was a graduate of Connecticut State College and was very proud to be a member of the class of 1944 of Yale School of Medicine. While at Yale, he served as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He practiced internal medicine and cardiology in Hartford for nearly 50 years after a residency at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and an internship at Hartford Hospital, where he formed his love for the hospital. He was a respected member of the staffs at Massachusetts General, Mount Sinai and Hartford Hospitals and was the President of the Heart Association of Greater Hartford. He was devoted to his patients and his brilliant diagnoses saved many lives. He loved his family and he shared his love of sailing and skiing with generosity and zest. In retirement he indulged his passion for painting and one of his works became the cover of the June/July 2010 issue of “Connecticut Medicine,” the magazine of the Connecticut State Medical Society, and he was given a solo show at The McAuley. He loved people and was always the life of any party. He was a resident of Avon, CT; Sarasota, FL; and Orrs Island, ME.

In addition to his wife, Carol is survived by his sons Peter Goldenthal and his wife, Natalie Landro, of Wynnewood, PA and Lance Goldenthal and his wife, Jann, of Raleigh, NC; his five grandchildren Rebecca Goldenthal and Steven Thomas; Sara Goldenthal and Patrick Quinlan; Lillian Carol Goldenthal and Joshua Ho-Walker and their soon to be son; Ariel Goldenthal; and Maddie Goldenthal; and his nieces and nephews and their families Soll, Anne, Leah and Rachel Goldenthal; Richard and Judie Goldenthal, Abby Goldenthal and Peter Bucchianeri, and Aaron Goldenthal; Anne Goldenthal; and Joan, Jason, Willie, Max and Eli Grear. In addition to his parents, Carol was predeceased by his brother Albert Goldenthal and many of his best friends.
