Ronald Allen Goff, age 82 of Ozark, passed away April 20, 2022. He was born July 22, 1939 in Adrian, Michigan, the son of Floyd Lester and A. Irene (King) Goff.
For those who knew him, Ron loved Jesus, his family/friends, and his sweets (in that order).
Ron was an active member at Ozark UMC. He had not been a member for very many years, but felt at home immediately. He was involved in worship, Bible study, Community Group and Sunday School. He was a regular door greeter on Sunday morning. And, he took great joy, and a little pride, in serving the church through his countless hours on the lawn mower. It was not an uncommon sight to find him zipping around the yard on the mower. He loved his Emmaus Community, where he served as a board member.
Ron loved his family fiercely. He would brag about his kids and grandkids to anyone who would listen. He took great pride in their lives and their accomplishments. He was able to renew his love for golf with the Geezer Golfers, and was thrilled to get out and chase that little ball around as much as possible.
The family is confident that Ron is finding comfort as he stands face to face with Jesus, with all the cookies and chocolate his sweet tooth desires.
The family is appreciative of the outpouring of support received.
Survivors include: his daughters, Elizabeth (Goff) Ramsey and husband David of Ridgeway, Ohio (children, Alexander and Jacqueline) and Melissa Vigneaux and husband Bradley (children-Connor Johnson, Noah Johnson, Tess Blankenship and Cody, and Elizabeth Vigneaux) of Ozark; and a brother, Floyd Lester “Sonny” Goff, Jr. of McMinnville, Tennessee.
Ronald was preceded in death by his sister, Jacqueline Garritson.
A Celebration of Life with military honors will be held at 11:00 A.M., Saturday, April 30, 2022 at Ozark United Methodist Church, under direction of Adams Funeral Home, Ozark, with Pastor Jacob Schneider officiating.
Memorial donations may be made to Ozark United Methodist Church or Honor Flight of the Ozarks.
