Lew Gold Passes Away

Karen and Lew Gold

The Richards Center is very sad to share the news that Lew Gold ('59) has passed away. Lew passed away on March 9. He and his wife, Karen, both have been longtime supporters of Penn State and the College of Liberal Arts. Lew was a founding member of the George and Ann Richards Center's board of visitors. He and Karen endowed a graduate scholarship in the center and provided crucial guidance during the center's growth into a nationally recognized institution. We will miss Lew's leadership and his ever-present kindness and good humor. Our thoughts are with Karen and their extended family. You can read more about Lew's legacy here.
