EISENSTADT, David G. Prominent Lawyer; Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and true friend. David G. Eisenstadt, of Belmont and North Falmouth, passed at home on August 9, 2022, at the age of 79, after a long illness. Dave was born in Roxbury, MA to the Hon. Samuel and Esther. He was always proud to proclaim that he was a “Roxbury boy.” He graduated from Milton High School in 1960, and Boston University in 1965. He followed in his father’s footsteps into the legal field and graduated from BU Law in 1968. He was an Assistant District Attorney in Suffolk County, and then worked with his father, and eventually in his own private practice. He was held in high esteem as a criminal defense lawyer. Dave counted among his friends many fellow lawyers, judges, clerks, court officers and police officers. Dave was the most devoted father a child could ask for. Throughout his entire life, his children came above all else. He was there for his children every step of their lives; from the moment they were born to the day he died. His devotion carried on to his 12 grandchildren. He never missed a dance recital, sports event, or school milestone. Each of his grandchildren believed they were his favorite. He met the love of his life, Emily Woods and they spent 15 beautiful years together, enjoying life at their homes on Cape Cod and Anna Maria Island, FL. They also traveled extensively to Africa, Greece, Italy, France, and the US. Every day they fell in love all over again. He is survived by his wife Emily Woods, and his three children Michael Eisenstadt (Sheila) of Needham, Julie Stevens (Scott) of Needham, and Joseph Eisenstadt (Leah) of Sharon. He was the proud grandfather to 12 grandchildren who adored him: Alexa, Samuel, Nicole, Summer, Christina, Charles, Victoria, Ashley, Meredith, Kathryn, Daniel, and Henry.He is also survived by his two sisters Naomi Stonberg (Jeffrey) of Gloucester, MA and Marilyn Gootman (Elliot) of Athens, GA and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
