I drove a Captain Donald J. Goettel in Boeblingen, Germany (1st Sig Btn) in 1961-62 & wondered if this was him. He also signed for me to join Solomon Lodge 822 in Stuttgart. He & our 1st Sgt. Floyd Shaw were both fine gentlemen. John P. Purcell, Linthicum, Md. My email: Jpurcell920@gmail.com

We are sorry that we are unable to properly share your lose. Lynn and I live in a warmer climate during the winter season. Rest assured that we will be with the Goettel family in our thoughts and prayers.

Perhaps the words of this old hymn will comfort you:

I heard the voice of Jesus say, "Come unto me and rest; lay down, thou weary one, lay down thy head upon my breast." I came to Jesus and I drank of that life giving stream; My thirst was quenched, my soul revived and now I live in Him.

So long good neighbor and friend.

To the Goettel Family,
We just came across this today and were so sad to hear this news.
Don was a strong, old-school, in the best sense, man. With his work ethic & loyalty to family, he lives on. It was a privilege to know him.
