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! 🙁
