Willard Gold

Willard “Bill” S. Gold, M.D. 86, died April 22, 2018.

Born in Chicago, Dr. Gold graduated from the University of Chicago and later from the College of Medicine at Northwestern University. He practiced psychiatry for 55 years, mostly in Texas, until 2017, when he moved to Tucson to retire near his children. Dr. Gold presented a paper at the 1970 World Health Organization assembly, “The Homestead,” a multi-generational project that was considered very progressive for that era. He also was active in his synagogue.

Dr. Gold was predeceased by his wife, Carol Ann.

Survivors include his former wife, Marcia Gold; daughters, Sharon and Ruth, both of Tucson, Belle (Michael) of Reno, Nevada, Amy (David) of Omaha, Nebraska; son, Paul (Greer) of Tucson; seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
