Ron Goldman

Ronald Lyle Goldman was born to Sharon and Fred Goldman on July 2nd, 1968. He grew up in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. He had a younger sister named Kim Goldman. When Ron was six, his parents divorced, and his father was granted custody. This led to a very distant relationship between Ron and Kim, and their mother. Ron attended the University of Illinois for one semester.

When Ron was eighteen, Fred remarried to a woman named Patti Glass, who had three children of her own. The family moved to Los Angeles, California. Ron attended Pierce College again, for one semester. He then became employed as a waiter at different LA-area restaurants and, eventually, at the Italian restaurant Mezzaluna.

He was a friend of Nicole Brown Simpson, and said that the biggest rush of his life was being allowed to drive her Ferrari. On June 12, 1994, he went to Nicole's condo to return a pair of glasses her mother had left at Mezzaluna. According to police re-creations, he arrived during or after Nicole being attacked, and tried to protect her, only to be cut down himself as well.

He is buried in Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake Village, California.
