USEF Steward Art Gottfried Passes
RELEASE: January 8, 2009
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Marnye Langer
Lifelong horseman Art Gottfried passed away on Sunday, December 21, in the presence of his immediate family. Gottfried is survived by Rosalie, his wife of many years, his children, grandchildren, and his beloved dog, Ralphie.
Gottfried was well known throughout the hunter/jumper sport for his lifelong involvement, and he was probably best known as a USEF Steward.
Services for Gottfried were held on Friday, December 26, at the McCormick & Sons Mortuary in Laguna Hills.
Rosalie asks that any remembrances in Gottfried’s name be made to one of his favorite charities, either City of Hope (https://secure.cityofhope.org/DONATE/Main/GeneralDonation.aspx
) or the Humane Society (https://secure.hsus.org/01/makeadonation?qp_source=gabam3
). Gottfried valued the care he received at City of Hope, and he was a passionate advocate of animals. He was also a past president of the California Professional Horseman’s Association, and they accept donations to their charitable arm, the CPHA Foundation (www.cpha.org/Foundation/index.htm
