Beloved husband of 71 years to the love of his life, Evelyn Goldsmith. Cherished father of Howard (Carole) Goldsmith, Susan (Roy) Kulick and Elise (David) Schostak. Very proud grandfather of Philip Goldsmith, Andrée (Sam Kronthal) Goldsmith, Michael Goldsmith, Laura (Josh) Goldman, Daniel (Andrea) Kulick, Jake (Shelby) Schostak, Dana (Alex) Bonda and the late Jayne Rudy Schostak. Adoring great-grandfather of Shay Goldsmith, Ruby and Oliver Kronthal, Hannah and Jonathan Goldman and Jesse Bonda. Devoted son of the late Anna and Morris Goldsmith. Brother of Herman (Barbara) Goldsmith and the late Tom (the late Marion) Goldsmith. Brother-in-law of Arthur (Gloria) Rosenstein and the late Melvin Rosenstein.

Harvey joined his father Morris in the bagel business, owning and operating New York Bagel until he passed it on to his son and grandson. He was very proud to see the business reach its 100 year anniversary this year. He enjoyed life to the fullest and always said that he was “born lucky” but that his life didn’t start until he met his wife. He loved playing golf and spending his winters in Florida, but most of all he loved being with his family.

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 25 people inside and 50 at graveside.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.
