Tied Forever

You may not remember his name, but you will remember his work. Gary David Goldberg, who died of brain cancer in Montecito, Calif., on Saturday, a few days before he turned 69 years old, created the hit series “Family Ties” which ran in the 1980s. “Spin City” followed in 1996 with Michael J Fox once again a main character.

We often mark our own life’s journey with cultural touchstones such as specific music or artists – or television programs. Goldberg leaves us with his artistic legacy that recalls milestone moments in our own lives.
