Robert Neal Goldston


Robert Neal Goldston, 58, passed away at Tennova Hospital on Friday, June 4, 2021.

He was born in Cleveland to the late Jo Clara and Hugh Marshall Goldston Sr.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and two brothers: Hugh Marshall Jr. and Gary Lamar Goldston.

Robert was a graduate of Bradley High School and a retiree of Walden Security. He also served as a Cleveland Police officer for many years, and while on duty he had a habit of checking on others.

Robert was a member of First Baptist Church. He loyally served God as a Christian and his community as a police officer. He carried the nickname "Go Go" because he was also willing to rush to the side of anyone who needed him.

Robert was a high-spirited young man with a beautiful infectious smile and lingering laughter, and he was an exceedingly kind person. He enjoyed keeping the company of his friends; playing cards; golfing; basketball; and riding his motorcycle.

He kept a positive attitude no matter what he went through and was firm in his faith.

He leaves to cherish his memories, his sisters: Youlanda Goldston and Eula Goldston, both of Cleveland; brother: Terry Goldston of Decatur, Ga.; aunt, Lucille Moore of Decatur; Pauline Smith of Cleveland; Sedilia "Sudie" Smith of Etowah; a host of nieces, nephews and cousins; close friends: Brian Smith, Deon Wilkerson, Zackery Sharp, Dewy Woodard, William Mee, David Alford and Tim Taylor; and many other friends too numerous to name.
