The Honorable Myron H. Gottlieb of Sarasota, Florida died on December 6, 2010. He was 69.

Myron was born in Philadelphia, but was raised in Mount Holly, New Jersey. He graduated from Rancocus Valley High School in 1959. After high school graduation, Myron attended Rutgers College and in the fall of 1963, he entered Rutgers Law School.

During the summer of 1965, Myron clerked for Alexander Denbo in Burlington, New Jersey. After graduation, he worked as an assistant prosecutor part-time, and was with the firm Kessler and Tutek. He argued cases before the New Jersey Supreme Court, the New Jersey Appellate Division, and Federal District Court. In 1977, he represented Willingboro in a matter before the United States Supreme Court, Linmark Associates, Inc. v. Willingboro.

In 1980, Governor Brensan Byrne appointed Myron as a judge of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Myron, who was appointed at age 38, was one of the youngest appointees to the bench in state history. In 1983, after a constitutional amendment, he became a Superior Court Judge. Governor Tom Kean re-appointed Judge Gottlieb in 1985. He was the youngest judge to achieve tenure. Until 1990, most of Myron's time was spent in the Civil Division. In 1990, Myron became the Presiding Judge of the Chancery Division, where he served until his retirement on February 1, 2002. Both on and off the bench, Myron's wry sense of humor showed through.

After retirement, Myron moved with his wife Bonnie to Sarasota, Florida. He enjoyed reading, listening to classical music, gardening, and cooking. He also liked spending time with his daughters and granddaughters.

In 1997 after suffering a major heart attack, Myron underwent a heart transplant. He remained healthy until 2008, when he was diagnosed with small cell neuro-endocrine carcinoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

Myron was preceded in death by his mother and father, Anna Rae and James Gottlieb. He is survived by his wife, Bonnie A. Gottlieb; his children, Mindy Barry and her husband, Jeffrey, of Gross Pointe Park, Michigan and Jill Hollar and her husband, Jason, of Charlotte, North Carolina; and three grandchildren, Hayden Barry, Claire Hollar, and Lauren Hollar.
