John Goldston, 78, moved to Pinelake Health and Rehab in January, having lived in a nursing home for about five years after suffering several debilitating strokes.

He was a native of the Goldston community in Chatham County. An avid fan of the North Carolina Tar Heels, he loved putting puzzles together and was a good friend of another shooting victim, Louise DeKler.

He is survived by a daughter and three sons; a sister; 14 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

A private memorial is planned.
