Obituary for Francis Eugene Goff

Francis Goff, age 86, born June 20, 1932 in Grant City, MO to Vernon and Dolores Goff, passed away surrounded by family on November 20, 2018.

Francis attended Grant City High School and filled his days with athletics. He completed one season of basketball at Trenton Junior College and returned to Grant City to marry the love of his life Laura Lou Bressler in 1951. Francis and Lou were blessed with four children and many grandchildren – their pride and joy.

Throughout their 63 years of marriage, Francis and Lou travelled to several states and six foreign countries, but their favorite activities were closer to home. Francis was an avid Northwest Missouri State athletics fan and held both basketball and football season tickets. Francis inherited a love of cooking from his mother which lead him to not only cook for family and friends but also to teach cooking lessons and author a cookbook.

Active in scouting, Francis attained eagle ranking as a youth and went on to serve as a scoutmaster for several years. He enjoyed volunteering as a counselor at Camp Quality, member of the Worth County Fair board, and 4-H leader. Francis was passionate about sports. He operated the clock at countless high school games and coached many athletes throughout the years. The Goffs owned a retail store in Grant City, and Francis later went into farming and founded Goff Construction.

After Lou’s passing in 2015, Francis took great joy in building a flower bed in her memory at their residence “One Oak Place.”

Francis is preceded in death by his parents, wife Lou, and grandsons Andrew and Matthew Goff.

He is survived his brother Charles Goff of Kansas City, MO and sister-in-law Carol Jensen of Woodland Park, CO; four children: Stephen Goff and wife Ramona of Grant City, MO, Susan Cavin and husband Jerry of Clarinda, IA, Douglas Goff and wife Shery of Zionsville, IN, Julie Elliott and husband John of Smithville, MO; eight grandchildren, Michele Eddington and husband Skip, Laura Risola, Thomas Goff, Amanda Goff, Daniel Goff, Samuel Elliott and wife Collins, Rebecca Goff, and Sadie Elliott; eight great-grandchildren and one more on the way; one great-great granddaughter and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held from 10:00-11:00 am on Friday, November 23, 2018 at the Andrews-Hann Funeral Home in Grant City with funeral services beginning at 11:00 am. The family will receive friends at the Francis Goff residence following the funeral. There will be no graveside service. Burial will be in the Grant City Cemetery next to his wife.

Memorials may be given to the Worth County Educational Foundation.
