HIGHWOOD – When Bloody Mary Fest first began, some judges got a little too carried away with the tantalizing offerings…
Norbert L. Gold, 93, of Winnetka, IL, died peacefully at Evanston Hospital surrounded by his loving family.
A diabetic for 77 years, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 16. His doctors did not think he would live past the age of 30, but he mastered his health by watching his diet and taking his insulin as directed. His health was a challenge in his later years, but he was grateful to the Winnetka Paramedics for always saving his life. In 2004, Eli Lilly honored him with a special recognition for being a diabetic for over 70 years on insulin therapy.
He graduated from Northwestern University, majoring in English & History and then received his law degree from John Marshall Law School. He had a long and successful career as an attorney and a real estate appraiser. He worked as an attorney for the Illinois Highway Dept., purchasing farmland for the construction of Highway I-55. He then joined Litton Industries as an attorney and director where he purchased and sold over 100 properties in the Midwest area. While practicing law, he established his own real estate appraisal and brokerage firm where he appraised over 20,000 properties in Chicago, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, L.A., and for many banks in the Chicagoland area. He served as an expert witness on property values in Lake and Cook County Courts and Federal Bankruptcy Courts.
Beloved husband of Mary Lou Bilder Gold. Loving father of Carolyn Gold-Kiser, Tom (Lana) Gold, and Bill (Julie) Gold. Loving step father of Marina (David) Burman. Kind grandfather of Tyzayah Kiser; Sophie Gold; Caleigh and Dylan Gold; Allison, Michael, and Matthew Burman. Dear brother of the late Donald (the late Elaine) Gold. Services have been held.
