Ronald E Goff

(Jul 10, 1928 to Jun 13, 2010)

Being one of 12 children Ron learned to appreciate quiet times. He worked his whole life for the same company. He was transferred to different cities and saw many name changes, but he retired from VWR Scientific in Logan Twp after starting in high school in a warehouse in Buffalo. If Ron lived in an area he’d forever be a fan of their teams: he cheered for the Bills, Steelers, Eagles and Phils. He loved professional wrestling and his wife’s baked goods. He served his nation in the army during the Korean Conflict. Later years found him traveling, mostly to see his kids and grandkids, but also enjoying several cruises.rnRon would meet a girl named Aeolah Rieffanaugh at an office Christmas party. Their 55 year marriage would be blessed by 4 children: Audrey (Jack) Walters, Randall, Arlene and Karen (Philip) Mason; 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. He is also survived by brothers, Kenneth and James and sisters: Marge Thompson, Joyce Haines, Joan Pascoe, Nona Heckman and Nina Sullivan.rnCome celebrate 81 great years Thursday, 11:00 a.m. at Kenmore United Methodist Church, 32 Landers Road, Kenmore NY. Interment White Chapel Memorial Park, Amherst NY.

    So sorry Lo and family for Ron’s passing. He was a great husband, father,brother and friend. Ron helped me with a history project in Jun High School when he came home from Korea which got me an A for the course which I was not doing too well in. I always remembered that help from Ron. He was quiet, thoughtful and highly respected. Loved my brother.

    I had my first real job at Will Sceintific/VWR starting while still in my teens in the late sixties. Ron was my supervisor and trainer. He always showed patience and never once appeared to become upset with any of my stupid mistakes. rnrnRon almost always came to work with a smile and a great sence of humor. It made going to work almost a pleasure.rnrnI am glad he was able to stay with VWR after they shut down in Buffalo. He certainly was a dedicated employee and was a huge asset to the corporation.rnrnI have thought of him often after I left 36 years ago. Ron left a lasting impact on my life. He was the best supervisor I have ever had, and I have had many since then.rnrnRon will be in my prayers. How fortunate the family was to have such a wonderful husband, father and freind.

    Ron was a great brother while I was growing up. He helped me over several hudles and I was proud to refer to hoi as “my big brother”. He was dearly loved and will be missed.
