Send Condolence

To Jerry and all the Gomberg Family members. I am sorry to read of Code's passing. I just rode my bike through the World War Two memorial on the north shore and thought of Code and what a great job he and others did to create a lasting tribute to all the Pittsburgh veterans of WW Two. Many times I enjoyed his pleasant company in the fish market and I loved listening to his stories. He was always kind, modest and pleasantly funny. To me he was a real Pittsburgh hero and I will miss him. It was an honor and a treat to know him. Dan Wholey

Mrs. Gomberg: our most sincere condolences on Code's passing. He was such a stalwart presence at VA Pittsburgh for over half a century! I am so pleased that Secretary Wilkie was able to meet him and present him with the Secretary's Challenge Coin last summer, to mark Code's remarkable generations of service to his fellow Veterans. He will always be treasured in our memories. Blessing and peace to you and your family during this sad time. Sincerely, Don Koenig
