George Golden

November 20, 1943 - February 7, 2022

George Golden was born on November 20, 1943 to Dan and Melva Golden in Pendleton Oregon. He passed away on February 7th, 2022 at the age of 78 while in the care of PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. George is survived by his wife of 36 years, April Golden, his 4 children, Simon, Ella, Mozelle, and Shaina and 2 grandsons, Elias and Tiran.

 

George was a strong believer in community service as the Founder & Director of the Non-Profit LINKS and spent the last 13 years distributing food, toys, and school supplies to those in need throughout the Clark County area.  He was a member of several service organizations including the Korean War Veterans Association Chapter 321, The Forty and Eight, 99 Voiture Locale, The American Legion Post #0014, Elks Lodge 823, Disabled American Veterans Chapter 4, Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship, and General Steering Committee Member for the annual Clark County Prayer Breakfast.

 

He was recognized several times for his non-profit work, receiving The President’s Volunteer Service Award in 2018, and the Department of Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service Certificate in 2020 and many letters of appreciation.

 

During the last decade George was a spiritual leader in the community, speaking at prayer breakfasts, leading Passover Seders for local congregations, and spreading peace and compassion with the community groups that he served.

 

George will be attended by his family and laid to rest in the Willamette National Cemetery, as a proud Air Force Veteran, on February 11th, 2022. In the coming weeks, a memorial service at Heritage Church NW will be announced for friends and family to celebrate George Golden’s life. His memory lives on in the hearts and actions of his surviving family who carry his love and compassion forward. His service to the lives of those in need acts as an inspiration for others to continue his work and serve our communities.
