Louis Alan Goldfinger was born on August 15, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York and passed away on March 6, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Helene Goldfinger; three children, daughter, Robin Good (David), sons Lawrence Goldfinger (Josephine) and Andrew Goldfinger (Denise); grandchildren Danielle Powell (Mike), Rachel Humboldt (Mark), Ryan Goldfinger, Steven Goldfinger, Kevin Goldfinger, Sean Good, Madison Good, Zane Goldfinger, Rachel Good and Travis Good; great grandchildren Jaxon and Jaymes Humboldt and Charles David Filice; and his brother Julius Goldfinger (Leah).

Louis served his country proudly as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955. After leaving the service, he returned home to New York. He went to school, got married, started a family and worked several jobs until moving to Las Vegas in 1965. In Las Vegas, he started a career as a blackjack dealer, which he did for 41 years. He met, dealt to, and knew many a celebrity thru the hey-day of Las Vegas. He was fond of telling humorous stories of these encounters and his family and friends loved hearing them.

He loved to golf, go bowling, take vacations, and his Dodgers (both Brooklyn and L.A.). But more than anything, he loved his family. He had a big heart and an open home to anyone at any time. His thoughtfulness and generosity were second to none. He was truly a wonderful man whose likes are seldom seen.

He is loved! He will be missed! He will never be forgotten!

We've known the Goldfingers for 56 years. Our children were raised together. Living across the street from Lou, Helene and their children was a very happy time. Lou was like a brother to me and an uncle to my children. I can only come up with very pleasant memories when I think of Lou. Lou was the kindest, most straight forward guy you've ever met, with a sense of humor that beat all. If there was a kindness needed, Lou was there. My daughters, Rhonda and Lisa, both send their condolences and like myself, will miss Lou very much. May he rest in peace, and his family find comfort in all their wonderful memories.

I was a guest at a party given by Lou and Helene. I was talking to Lou and it occurred to me what a striking figure he was. I complimented him on his tan, his athletic physique, and his great salt and pepper hair. The imp came out in me and without skipping a beat I gave him my best come hither look and asked him what he was doing after the party.... He just stood there staring at me with his mouth agape while Robin, who had joined us, burst into uncontrolled laughter. I spent the rest of the evening apologizing and in the end he graciously accepted. I'll NEVER forget the look on his face.

"A Heart is not judged by how much you loved, but, by how much you are loved by others." Some people come into our lives much like everyone else. Then we have those and we see them now and then and it's pure joy and memories overflowing. The clock ticks way too fast and a chance of seeing each other by suprise is more of a gift this heart can hold. But, Lou, I still hear your voice, laugh and I feel your last long hug. Lou was a dad and a grandfather who loved to love his family. Robin was his 'apple of his eye', she favors him so much in her mannerisms. But, oh, look at her eyes and you see her dad, truly daddy's little girl. The boys were his joy, both Larry and Andy could talk sports, play golf, enjoying grandkids antics made Lou so proud of them and it was what he loved. You and Helene had so much fun and adventures and making memories shared together over the years on your trips and cruises. Lou you are loved by many, remembered with only the joy of memories. A gift from God to all of us that has now been given back. Your heart is forever with us. We love you Lou.
