Dave Goldberg, entrepreneur and husband of Facebook's Sandberg, dies

Goldberg, CEO of SurveyMonkey, passed away suddenly at 47

Dave Goldberg, SurveyMonkey's CEO and husband of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, died Friday night. He was 47 years old.

Goldberg, a well known Silicon Valley entrepreneur, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, his brother Robert said in a Facebook post.

"In this time of sorrow, we mourn his passing and remember what an amazing husband, father, brother, son and friend he was," Robert Goldberg wrote.

In a statement released Saturday, SurveyMonkey said Goldberg's "genius, courage and leadership were overshadowed only by his compassion, friendship and heart."

"His greatest love was for his family. Our sympathy goes out to them and to all who were touched by this extraordinary man. We are all heartbroken," the company said.

His brother wrote that in lieu of donations, Goldberg's family is asking his friends to post photos and memories of him on his Facebook profile, which has been turned into a memorial account.
