Dr. Bradford Goff

06-19-1951  -  07-30-2017

Obituary

            Bradford M. Goff MD, age 66 of New York City and Wilton Manors, Florida, succumbed to a bravely fought battle with brain cancer on July 30th, 2017.  
            Born June 19, 1951 in Springfield MA, Dr. Goff graduated with honors from the University of Massachusetts.  He earned his doctorate from SUNY Downstate Medical School, completed his residency at Timberlawn Psychiatric Hospital and was honored to serve patients in hospitals in Dallas and New York, including North General Hospital in Harlem.  
            Dr. Goff was most proud of his 2001-2015 tenure at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, where he rose to become the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry.  Among his many accolades are citations from the Borough President's Office in Brooklyn and The State Assembly of New York for his outstanding commitment to providing services and support to local residents and those in need.  In 2014 he received the Board of the American Psychiatric Association's honor, that of "Distinguished Life Fellow."
            Dr. Goff was preceded in death by his mother Florence Goff, nee Gillett, his father Maurice Goff and recently by a lifetime family friend, Lee Waterman.
            Bradford leaves behind his husband Bradley Meade, with whom he spent the last 26 years of his life; his brother and sister-in-law, Kenneth and Cristel Goff; sister and brother-in-law, Barbara and George Pallotta; mother and father-in-law, George and Mary Meade; as well as a large extended family.
            Dr. Goff will be remembered for his dedicated professionalism, elegant style and wry humor by admiring colleagues, grateful patients and an adoring cadre of friends.
            Life is too important to be taken seriously. - Oscar Wilde
                At his request, there will be a party to celebrate Dr. Goff's remarkably meaningful life on September 23, 2017 at the PRIDE Center, 2040 North Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors, Florida 33305.  Guests will be welcomed from Noon until 4:00pm where there will be celebratory music, laughter, hors d'oeuvres and more.  At 2:00pm all will be invited to take part in his eulogy and to reflect on the words of Rev. Leslie A. Rutland-Tipton. 
                In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the National Greyhound Adoption Program at 10901 Dutton Road Philadelphia, PA 19154, or online at NGAP.org. Donations in Dr. Goff's memory can also be made to the PRIDE Center, 2040 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors, Florida 33305.

I would like extend my Condolences to Bradley and the rest of the family. I was very sad to hear of Brad's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him at Lutheran Medical Center. I will always remember his compassion, integrity and dry sense of humor. He was a talented physician and leader. Many lives were made better by the work that he accomplished.

To Ken, Barbara and Bradley,
I am sorry for your loss. Cousin Brad has passed on at much too young an age. He accomplished a lot in his lifetime and deserves to be treated well in heaven.

I knew Brad from the periphery of his professional life. First, as a practicing psychologist, I was his professional landlord. Then for many years he was the psychiatric consultant for several of my patients. Thus, in many ways I knew very little about him except for the following; that he was brilliant, that he spoke beautifully, with precision, that my patients loved him, and that he was a wonderful human being. That's all anyone needs to know about anyone.
