In an interview last month, Goldberg told the news site Business Insider of maxing out his credit cards in the early 1990s to fund one of his first Internet ventures, a music site, before going on to work at other tech companies, including Yahoo.
In 2004, Goldberg married Sandberg, another longtime tech executive who now serves as Facebook’s chief operating officer.
Sandberg launched an international conversation about the dearth of women in positions of power with her 2011 book “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead.” In it, Sandberg wrote of the adjustments she and her husband had to make to manage two high-profile careers while raising two children.
On Monday, the Walt Disney Co. moved up its earnings release to Tuesday morning to allow executives to attend Goldberg’s funeral. Sandberg is a member of Disney’s board of directors. The earnings report was originally scheduled for the afternoon following the stock market close.MORE NEWS: COVID In Minnesota: MDH Reports 11,193 New Cases, 42 More Deaths
