David Goldberg, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and husband of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, died suddenly Friday night. 

Goldberg sold his first startup at 26 to Yahoo and succeeded in the business and startup world. He went on to become CEO of the billion dollar survey company SurveyMonkey.

Just a couple weeks ago, Business Insider wrote a piece on Goldberg, saying, "By any measure, Goldberg has a fantastic life. And it's easy to see why: he's smart, witty, but laid-back, the kind of guy that can swap funny stories one minute and argue economics the next with a waterfall of top-of-head facts."

On Saturday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted, "Dave Goldberg was an amazing person and I am glad I got to know him. My thoughts and prayers are with Sheryl and her family."

The cause of Goldberg's death was still unknown as of early Saturday afternoon. He is survived by Sandberg and their two children.
