Dr. Morton Goldfarb, a urologist associated for many years with Brunswick Hospital in Amityville, of which he became medical director, died in Boynton Beach, Fla., on March 11 of lung cancer. He was 88 and had been ill for less than four months.

Dr. Goldfarb, a graduate of New York Medical College who had served as president of the Nassau County Medical Society, did his residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, where he met Dorothy Jean Johnston. The couple married on March 14, 1953, and soon moved to Massapequa, where they raised four children.

He was born in the Bronx on June 5, 1926, to Mona and Frank Goldfarb. He served as a lieutenant in the Navy after receiving his medical degree.

Dr. and Mrs. Goldfarb began summering in East Hampton in 1990 and made it their year-round home in 2000. The couple also spent time in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., as well as Boynton Beach. Mrs. Goldfarb died in 2013.

An enthusiastic golfer, Dr. Goldfarb was a member of the Gardiner’s Bay Country Club in Amagansett, where he made many friends. He also enjoyed tennis and playing the piano.

He is survived by his children, Dr. Steven Goldfarb of Laurel, Md., Dr. David Goldfarb of Cleveland, Susan Ross of Scarsdale, N.Y., and Amy Goldfarb of Providence, R.I., and by eight grandchildren.

A memorial gathering of family and friends was held at Ms. Ross’s residence on March 15. A walk in his memory is being planned for later this year in East Hampton.

Donations in Dr. Goldfarb’s memory have been suggested to the Retreat, 13 Goodfriend Drive, East Hampton 11937.
