On Friday, October 28, 2022, Captain Ari Ronel Goldschmidt, BSN, PMHNP, a loving partner, father of two and stepfather of five, passed away at age thirty-seven. A Captain in the United States Army Reserves, Ari served his country for the past 18 years; and shared that commitment to friendship and service with his large community of friends, colleagues, and co-workers for all his life. Most of all, Ari was a family man. He deeply loved his family and enjoyed celebrating with them in many wonderful ways.
Ari was born to Robert and Michele Goldschmidt on July 7, 1985 in New York City, the second of three sons. He joined the Reserves at age 18 and spent one year in Iraq. He graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing degree and quickly gained high-level skills in several areas of nursing. He earned a Master’s degree in Psychiatric-Behavioral Health Nursing and spent his last few years as the lead nurse practitioner at a residential behavioral health facility.
Ari was happiest surrounded by and sharing life with his family. He loved gourmet cooking, fancy cake baking and mixology. He loved traveling, seeing new places and sharing active pursuits like hiking and fishing. Most of all, Ari loved celebrating life cycle events with family, including both Jewish and Christian customs to honor his blended family.
Ari is survived by his wife and loving partner, Chrystal, his two children, Micah and Ayla from his first marriage, and Chrystal’s five children, Chrissy, Daniel, Matthew, Sammy and Izack. Although Ari and Chrystal shared only four years together, those years were filled with a lifetime of love and beautiful memories.
He also is survived by his parents, two brothers, Ian and Lee; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
Ari leaves a legacy of committed service, caring for others with an impact that was deeply felt by all who knew him. He will be greatly and dearly missed.
