October 1, 1935 - September 19, 2021
GREENFIELD – Jackie Carl Goff, age 85, of Greenfield, passed away Sunday, September 19, 2021. He was born in Lapel, Indiana on October 1, 1935 to John H. Goff and Ruth M. (Neal) Goff. He graduated from Lapel High School in 1953. On September 2, 1955, he married Sue Thomas. He retired in 1994 after 38 years with Local 18 Asbestos workers, where he was part of JATC. Jack retired as a pastor of Christ Fellowship Church in 2019. Jack was a faithful servant of Christ and a testimony to the powers of the Holy Spirit and how it transforms a person. He often told the story of how he got involved with the food pantry. It was Sue’s fault and at her direction and insistence. But, we all know God was at work. He was an example to all who met him at the food pantry, as an elder and pastor in his church. I can only imagine the scene in heaven when Christ says “Well done, good and faithful servant.” These words were written by a dear friend, Tom Ferguson, who also nominated him for the Bert Curry Healthy Community award from Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation in 2016, which he won due to his years of service as an operations director of the food pantry. Jack was an avid sports fan, worked the chains, an umpire, loved to bowl, play softball and euchre. He was very competitive. He was also an avid fisherman and gardener. Jack never knew a stranger, loved his family, church family and friends deeply. Jack is survived by his loving wife, Sue Goff; children, David C. Goff (Beth), Mark T. Goff (Susan), John E. Goff (Susan), and Marcianne Gilbert (Mike); 10 grandchildren; 23 great grandchildren; sister, Anita Kirby; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Ruth Goff. Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Christ Fellowship Church, 4833 IN-109, Knightstown, IN 46148. A funeral service will be held on Friday, September 24, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at the church. Pastor Bill Roberts will be officiating. Burial will follow at Eden Cemetery in Greenfield.
