Dr. Sheldon Goldberg of Prince Frederick, Md., died while vacationing last week in Montana with his wife and friend.
The three were fishing on the Boulder River when their raft flipped. Dr. Goldberg and his friend were unable to escape the rushing water. His wife, Dr. Ramona Crowley Goldberg, was able to reach an area residence where she called for help.

Following his death the hospital released this statement:
“Our hospital family is grieving the loss of our friend and colleague- who has devoted his professional life to Calvert County for the past 25 years. His passion for life and dedication to serving our community will be long remembered with love and admiration.”
