Lee D. Goldstein
Lee Goldstein was 14 years old when he suffered a devastating injury in a diving accident. Through the loving care of his family, he has become the longest living quadriplegic in the world (60+years).
Lee graduated from UCLA with a degree in industrial relations and began as a technical writer for Litton Industries, where he achieved top secret atomic clearance. During this time, he opened a series of stores called The Smuggler, situated in malls in Los Angeles, where he sold artifacts from around the world.
If he weren’t busy enough, Lee became a flipper of Victorian homes; built, owned and operated a bed and breakfast, and raised five adopted children and two foster children.
Lee retired in 1992 and worked for the Montana schools, and volunteered in a community hospital. He currently lives in Prescott, AZ with his wife Ellen.
