Dr. Mark A. Gold
January 06, 2022
Dr. Mark A. Gold, age 63, of Quincy, died on Thursday, January 6, 2022, at 11:23 am in Blessing Hospital.
Mark was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the son of Ronald and Barbara Gold.
Mark wanted to be a brain surgeon since he was five years old. He has been a board certified neurosurgeon for over 30 years. Mark was a physician at Quincy Medical Group and performed neurosurgery at Blessing Hospital. Mark was once told that he spent too much time with his patients, and his response was "I give the patients all the time I feel they need from me. Period. End of Story." Mark was a caring doctor and had a gentle, loving soul.
He was the best husband, father, son and brother a family could have. Mark had a big heart and would do anything to help his family, friends, patients or anyone he met.
Mark loved to travel and photography was a hobby of his. He enjoyed watching his children play golf and serving as their caddy when they were little.
Survivors include his wife, Nicole Gold of Quincy; four children, Gabriel and Sophia Gold, both of Quincy, Matthew Gold of California, and Joshua Gold of Nevada; his mother, Barbara Gold of Arizona; two sisters, his twin, Mindy (Steven) Lichtblau, and Dina (Michael) Walling, both of Arizona; a cousin, Cory Sloman of Arizona; many nieces and nephews; and an aunt, Shelly Roth of Arizona.
Mark was preceded in death by his father, Ronald Gold.
Mark's family would like to extend their thanks to the nurses, doctors and all the staff at both Quincy Medical Group and Blessing Hospital who cared for Mark during his prolonged illness.
