‘Beloved’ Dentist Richard Gottfried Shared Practice With His Wife
Richard Gottfried was “loyal” and a beloved dentist to his patients.
Friends and family lined up in the afternoon to pay their respects at the funeral for Gottfried, 65, who was one of 11 people slain in the Pittsburgh synagogue rampage.
Gottfried shared a practice with his wife, Peg.
Dr. Jane Segal, a dentist who graduated from the University of Pittsburgh a year ahead of Gottfried, said he was a “wonderful man and a wonderful dentist.”
“You couldn’t find anyone finer,” she said.
Also in line was Dr. Paul Taicelt, who said he and Gottfried had provided free dental clinics and volunteered for Catholic Charities together.
“He was very conscientious and very loyal,” Taicelt said. “And all of his patients loved him.”
