Obituary

Steve Goltz passed away early Sunday, May 29, 2022, at home with his family by his side.  Dr. Steven Dallas Goltz, third son of Harold and Doris Goltz, was born January 20, 1949, in Ada, Minnesota.  Upon graduation from Ada High School, Steve enlisted in the Air Force and served for four years.  While stationed at Elmendorf Air Base in Anchorage, Alaska, he met and married his soul mate, Linda Palczewski.  They spent 50 wonderful years together and were blessed with two children, Andy and Kristin.  Steve graduated from Alaska Methodist University and then from the University of Colorado with a Doctor of Medicine degree.  He spent his life helping others as a family practice physician in the Sacramento, California area.  Steve was well respected and truly loved by the many patients he served over his 25-year career.  Steve enjoyed boating and kayaking, gardening, traveling, participating in the Porsche Club, and hosting events for friends and family.  The highlight of his life was spending time with his children and grandchildren.  He cherished and supported each of them.  Steve attended their many activities and specifically enjoyed watching their swim meets and water polo games serving as their number one fan.  He was incredibly proud of their many accomplishments.  Steve was a loving, caring husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle.  We all appreciated his wonderful sense of humor that made us smile and laugh.  He was an extremely generous and thoughtful man, and his willingness to help others served as a sterling example to his family and friends.  Steve believed in celebrating the many gifts life has to offer.  He is sorely and painfully missed, but we know he will remain in our hearts forever.  Steve is survived by his wife, Linda, son Andy, daughter Kristin Hurd and her husband Brian, grandchildren Carolyn and Clara Hurd, brother and sister-in-laws Keith and Carol Goltz, Warren and Colleen Goltz, and Kendall and Becky Goltz, and many nieces and nephews.  In Steve’s honor, donations may be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, https://www.nationalmssociety.org.
