Finding that combination in current popular pedigrees is probably not going to happen.
If you were looking further back you find the old North American foundation goldens in that pedigree Speedwell Pluto, Gilnockie Coquette, Saffron Chipmonk, and other Rockhaven/Gilnockie dogs. Then you find their progeny including dogs from Stilrovin, Oakcreek, Indian Knolls, Tonkahoff, Golden Valley and Goldwood. These are old kennels from the upper midwest and southern Canada.
If you look at long term breeders in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Manitoba or Ontario you may be able to find dogs of similar character. As an article in the Golden Retriever News pointed out a few years ago these are the "Old Goldens". They are somewhat different from the "New Goldens" that are more commonplace today.
You can still find the old style dogs, but you'll have to do some digging to find them.
