Alvin J. Gottlieb, son of David and Dorothy Gottlieb passed away this morning at the age of 86. He is survived by four children, Laura, Daniel, Michael and Joseph as well as a large number of Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
I will post specifics for services as soon as I have them but it will be later this week in Oak Park, Il.
Words cannot describe the enormity of our loss. Dad was a true Gentleman. Kind and loving to all, he was happy and full of life all the way to the end

Thanks for all of the great contributions to pinball.


1 year, 4 months ago

I'm glad I have a few Gottlieb pinball machines in my collection.
Good time to take a moment to reflect on life.
Some of the first pins I ever played were Gottlieb 70's e-m's.

RIP Alvin Gottlieb. Magnotron will get much playing time tonight in your honor.

Very sad times.
Condolences to his family.

History maker.

I am deeply sorry to hear this. Alvin will live on through the pinbally legacy he has left behind for all of us! I was just playing my Alvin G Mystery Castle and Gottlieb Big Shot last night. If it wasn't for the Gottlieb family business, I may have never got into pinball in the first place. RIP Alvin G!

Another legend moves on. Rest in Peace, Alvin!

Most of my favorite games have the Gottlieb name attached to them. I may have to reconfigure what is coming to Expo in order to honor the Gottliebs.


1 year, 4 months ago

R.I.P Alvin..


1 year, 4 months ago

One of the greats. I, too, send my condolences.

Gonna have to play a few games on my Gottlieb Big Hit tonight in his honor.


1 year, 4 months ago

RIP


1 year, 4 months ago

Ow! That hurts to hear. My condolences to the family.

In the 1960's as a day dreaming kid in Elementary School, I would endlessly draw Pinball machine layouts.
i felt it was my career path then. Id fold them up and mail them off to Bally, Chicago Coin, and Gottlieb, among others.
Gottlieb was the only one to respond. (cant blame them for a 9 year old sending in "Pin 3000" pictures).
We had many exchanges, and met up in later years, he was a Gentleman, in the truest sense.
He will be missed.

Time for everyone to play on Gottlieb in his honor.


1 year, 4 months ago

R.I.P. Mr. Gottlieb. Like other's, I'll play my Genie in his honor.


1 year, 4 months ago

Think I will make playing gottliebs mandatory tonight for CT league in his honor.


1 year, 4 months ago

Mystery Castle and Pistol Poker sit in honor tonight of Alvin G's legacy...Thanks for the contributions to this great hobby.

RIP

Terrible news, and right before Expo.

Thank you Alvin. Thank you for all you did for pinball.

....many a fine day playing brand new Gottlieb's, like Strange World or Jet Spin at the pinball arcade in Sherway gardens in Toronto. Nothing better then a sparkling Gottlieb from the 1970s. Jpop
