If you grew up in the 1980s as I did, you are going to be extra sad when you read on.  “Family Ties” series creator Gary David Goldberg has died.  He was a few days short of his 69th birthday, succumbing to brain cancer.  He also wrote episodes for “The  Bob Newhart Show” and also produced “Lou Grant.”  He won two Emmys, a Peabody award and two Golden Globes for his work.  I had the occasion of meeting Gary David Goldberg several times and he was always super friendly.  Of course, I gushed to him my love for “Family Ties,” and he thanked me for my support!  What a class act.  RIP, Gary David Goldberg!  🙁
