Obituary of Philip Wayne Goff

Philip "Phil" Wayne Goff died peacefully on January 3, 2018 in Kansas City, MO at the age of 64.

Phil was born on August 25, 1953 to Donald and Rose Goff. Phil married Rebecca Goff, his best friend, on November 30, 1985. Phil and Becky met at Delden Garage Door Manufacturing where he would become Sales Manager during his 41 years of loyal service and developed a lifetime of friendships. The two would go on to do a magnificent job as parents, raising his three surviving children. His children remember him as a kind, humble, funny, hardworking, loving, and supportive father who was always there for his family and friends. Everyone was always welcome in Phil’s garage.

Phil was a fan of many outdoor activities, enjoyed live music, was a huge Chiefs and Royals fan, loved being terrible at golf, but his main source of joy was spending time with his family (especially his grandson), friends, and dog Bella.

He is preceded in death by his father, Donald Wayne Goff. Phil is survived by his mother Rose Goff, sister Joyce Stark and her husband Glen Stark, his brother Ron Goff and his wife Ruthie Goff as well as many beloved nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his Wife Rebecca Goff, sons Derek Goff and Kyle Goff, and daughter Amanda Fustos, her husband Caleb and son Cyrus.

To Family & Friends of Phil Goff:

I just found out that Phil was taken a few hours ago, January 2018, through a website update 12/9/2019. I just wanted to memorialize our contact during our school years but first our condolences to his family and friends that have lost a great guy to be around.

Phil and I were in about every class together for 6+ years. He either sat in a desk next to me or behind me because we were both Phil and his last initial was G and mine F. We never had a conflict on anything and had lots of fun in everything. After reading the memory statement this morning I thought how wonderful it was that he continued on like this in his adult life. Hearing about his loyalty was no surprise either. When the Rams moved back to LA a couple of years ago and got Jared Goff, I thought about Phil a lot and even pulled out some old photos I had of his from elementary school, when our family just moved to Kansas, wondering if there was any relationship. Phil didn't live in our immediate neighborhood but we went to the same schools and liked the same things, especially the Chiefs and the Royals. If Phil wasn't in a class with me he was always in the nearby locker. I never knew his birthday either but he was one month older than me. Of all my classmates Phil had to be one of those most friendly and level headed. Sad to hear he's gone but my intent is to comfort those who lost him the most of all and encourage all to cherish his friendship in memory.

With God's Agape, Phillip S Fivgas
