PIKESVILLE, Md. — On Tuesday, family and friends celebrated Battalion Chief Lawrence H. Goldberg, who died on Thursday at the age of 50.
Goldberg began his career with the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company in 1988. In 1991, he was hired as a paramedic with the Baltimore City Fire Department and quickly moved up the ranks to become a lieutenant, a captain, and then a Battalion Chief.
At his funeral on Tuesday, fellow firefighters saluted Goldberg on bridges and overpasses as his procession made its way through I-83.
Goldberg was later buried at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens.
He is survived by his wife, daughter and son and a host of other family members.
