In memory of
Robert Charles Golden
Robert Charles Golden, 73 Prudential exec; philanthropist, kind and generous to the core Robert Charles Golden, 73, passed away on June 9, 2020, the result of heart complications. He was born on July 12, 1946, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, N.Y. Although he lived in Arrochar, Staten Island, for more than 30 years, he always considered Bay Ridge his hometown. Before retiring, Bob was an executive vice president of Prudential Financial. He was a man of deep faith and gave tirelessly to many charitable causes, of which Catholic Charities and HeartShare Human Services, for which he served as vice chair, were closest to his heart. Bob loved everything Irish and was a proud member of The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, The Emerald Association of Long Island, The Ancient Order of Hibernians, and The Saint Patrick's Society of Brooklyn. In 2000, he was named one of the Wall Street 50 by Irish America Magazine. He was also past president of The Cathedral Club of Brooklyn and The Bayfort Benevolent Associates. Bob was a Knight of the Order of St. Gregory the Great, a Knight of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, a Knight, Grand Cross, of The Equestrian Order of The Holy Sepulchre, and a member of the Knights of Columbus. A graduate of Xaverian High School and Fordham University Graduate School of Business, he is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in Finance & Industry. He loved fun and hanging out with the boys and will be missed by his Vermont bonding buddies. Cigar nights won't be the same without him. A man who never craved the limelight yet received many awards and honors, he was named Humanitarian of the Year by the Catholic Guardian Society, Educator of the Year by the Association of Teachers of New York, Chief Brehon of the Great Irish Fair of Brooklyn, Man of the Year by the Cathedral Club of Brooklyn, and Man of the Year by Catholic Big Brothers. Golden was also the recipient of the Bishop's Humanitarian Award from Catholic Charities, Diocese of Brooklyn, the Spirit of Xaverian Award from Xaverian High School, the Excellence in Volunteerism Award from HeartShare Human Services, and the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, to name just a few. Bob, truly a man with a "Golden" heart, was the beloved husband of Maureen Moore and the proud father of Kathleen Elizabeth and Robert Charles Jr. Kind and generous to the core, he will be truly missed by all who knew him. The family encourages donations in lieu of flowers to: HeartShare Human Services, Moore Residence, 12 Metrotech Center, 29th Fl., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11201.
