I met Kevin working on a custom remodel kitchen in Hollywood, FL.
We quickly became friends and found out through the course of the project we had a mutual friend, a motor-cross pal.
Kevin's charismatic presence was accompanied with a humor to match. I will always remember him painting 'Go Heat' on my van's rear window.
Kevin freely shared his knowledge with me and at the same time listened to new ideas.
I associated with him for a month but he is impressed upon me forever.
His family, friends and world has been forever changed through his life.
Sendi, Cody & Shay:
I was reading facebook and realized what happened to your family. I remember our talks at work and our friendship and how we talked about our families. Kevin love will carry on in you forever. I will be in contact with you.
Kevin and I go way back. Skiing on his jet boat, scubadiving, weekends in the Keys, what a hellraiser..I love you man,my daughter Brianna and I will never forget you..Ill be seein ya soon.
First time I saw Kevin , he in a crib while his parments looked for an aparment in L.I. I was just out of the army and looking for a job. Kevin grew up to be quite a fine young man. Always in sports and exceling. He was tops as far as I was concerned. Very polite and more. Didnt get to see him much , but seeing the messages of him were heart felt.

To my long-time dear friend, Sendi, and family: I am rarely at a loss for words, but having just seen a few items on Facebook moments ago, I do not know what to write. I know nothing of what happened to this young, vibrant man but I keep thinking of the time Sendi introduced him to me and I received an instant wide grin:) Pray each of you can find your smiles again in the future........Rho
I did not know Kevin. I pulled into Mesa Park that Sunday with my 7yr old grandson. The first person I noticed was Kevin and his son. I said to myself I hope me and my grandson can keep riding together into his teenage years and I can stay in the kind of shape Kevin was in being 49 myself. Kevin came up to me and my grandson and told him what a goodlooking kid he was and for us to have a good time. Less than a few minutes later unfortunately Kevin had passed. Please tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and live everyday to its fullest which is the way it sounds like Mr. Goss did. Bless his family and loved ones.
To the Goss Family:
Having just learned of the passing of Kevin I can only pray that you will find the strength of who Kevin was and his friendly nature to continue in his memory. We borrowed tools, parts and swapped stories at the race track. He was an inspiration to my boys as well as me. Sharing his zest for life in all that he did, including buying the new van. May you find peace in your heart from the lives he touched. RIP
RIP Kevin, you were always very sweet & kind to me & my children, prayers to your family........
May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of great times together. He will always be in our thoughts and hearts.
I have worked with Kevin for over twenty years, on many projects. Kevin always made himself available when he was needed most. Kevin was always the first one to arrive and the last to leave. He was always happy to be doing whatever was required to do the best job possible. He was always kind and courteous to everyone he met, except possibly sub-contractors who couldn't perform to his standards, even if they weren't working for him. He always completed every job, not only correctly but beautifully. He had high standards for himself and held everyone else to those standards. He always did what he said that he was going to do. He was a consummate professional.
Kevin always spoke warmly about his family and was always concerned about our family. He would talk about his family here in Miami but also about his affection and concerns about his extended family in Georgia and New Hampshire. We were always comparing notes on our son's accomplishments. He would talk forever about Kodys BMX exploits. It was great when both of our sons were playing Lacrosse, we could trade notes. We were talking just before he left for the Daytona trip and he was telling me how much he looked forward to riding that weekend with Kody.
Every day was a beautiful day to Kevin. He will be sorely missed. He is irreplaceable. I considered Kevin a friend and more, he was my left hand.
Dear Sendi, Kody and Shay,
Words really cannot describe our feelings. There is not a corner of our home that has not been touched by Kevin's craftsmanship! As an interior designer kevin and i use to say we should start a show together on HGTV! :)He has been a good friend for more than 25-27 years!! He always had an ear for a story and LOTS of advice. He has had a key to every home we owned. He counceled me thru teen years with my son...and loved my kids. Never did he arrive here and not ask how is my mom. Family came first, he bragged with pride about his family. We just keep repeating outload "Kevin is gone" ?? Is it real? Such a strong individual physically and in his convictions about life....WOW what a hole in our hearts! He will be missed but not gone from our memories. With all our love Stephanie, Stan, Trisha, Brian, Oliver and Todd
My condolences to Kevin's family. I grew up with Kevin and
Played sports with him in school and teams our Dad's coached.
Kevin was a good friend and a quiet guy. One of the toughest competitors I have ever seen.
RIP my old friend, I will never forget the days we spent together as teenagers playing soccer. Although we lost touch as friends do, you will always be part of my life and thanks for that. Your friend Patrick Higgins
I am so sorry to hear of your loss, Sendi. Although I never met Kevin, I know that Sendi would not settle for anything less than wonderful--exactly what she deserves. Sendi, I pray that the Lord gives you and your precious children peace that passes all understanding and showers you with His love. God bless you and your children and your and Kevins' families. The words about Kevin are lovely and inspiring. Love to you all.
to the goss family, you are in our thoughts and prayers,sincerly sarah chase and family.
Kevin was so respectful and professional. A mentor in many ways. He will be greatly missed. We are sending lots of love to his family and loved ones. God speed my friend. Truly enjoyed spending time with you at Daytona SX.
You will be greatly missed. It was a pleasure and honor to be your friend. You were always so nice to my family and I. Rest in peace.
Sendi & Family,
I am deeply sorry for your loss of husband & father, Kevin. The words written about him were truly uplifting and inspiring. I did not ever meet Kevin personally, but I was able to witness his devotion to Sendi at our 40th high school reunion this past Sept. That night, I took a mental note as I watched Kevin beaming while Sendi reunited with her friends who knew her "back when". He really basked in her pleasure, and I could tell just from witnessing him in those moments that he was a good man who enjoyed life and he loved his wife. God Bless.
Kevin most certainly had a presence on this earth. My childhood is dotted with fond memories of summer afternoons boating in the keys with both he and Sendi.
Always kind and encouraging, he was full of spirit and laughter. Thank you Sendi for having brought such a great man into our lives.
Few words can describe what an amazing man he was. He never was to busy to stop what he was doing to talk with me and share his vast insight on life. Causing me to reflect internally and see things in a different perspective. Everyone has advice, but few have the honesty and virtue to enforce there own words. Kevin's words will always echo in my spirit, heart and mind. Goodbye good friend.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin at my 40th reunion. He was such a wonderful person. This world has lost a good man from what I saw. Rest in peace Kevin. Heaven has gained one good man.
My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin as a result of his fine work for Michael Steffens and Majorie Goldman. As a result of his fine work, we hired him as well. Kevin always had a smile on his face and overwhelming energy. He was a perfectionist at his craft. He had an enthusiasm for life that we admired and yearned to emulate. While we have not met his family, we feel as if we know them because whenever we had occasion to run into Kevin, seldom would he miss the opportunity to talk to us about the family that he so loved. He always spoke of Sendi, Kody and Shay with love and pride. I cannot believe he is gone. The words written about Kevin are entirely consistent with the man we knew and admired. Our hearts go out to Kevin's family. Kevin, indeed, lived life to the fullest. May he rest in peace.
My family and I are so blessed to have had Kevin and the goss family in our lives.kevin was such a postive person with such great family values thank you for being a part of our lives.Till we met again R.I.P.old friend all will be well..
What a blessing to have touched so many lives in such a short time here on this earth. I was deeply touched by the words that honor this amazing man. Please accept my condolences and prayers for him and his family.
We have been fortunate to have known Kevin for the past twenty years. He was a very talented contractor and a wonderful person. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Goss family who were so very dear to Kevin and whom he talked about all the time.
Yes, Kevin's warmth and personality will live on through his amazing wife Sendi, and their wonderful children Kody and Shay. The Goss family are very special people. My thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. Sharlene Goldberger
We will miss Kevin dearly. He was a very special man who epitomized goodness and who touched everyone. My family's most heartfelt condolences.
Sendi, Kody, & Shay - There are no words to express how sorry we are for your loss. We feel truly blessed to have been a part of your lives for so many years. Kody and Cody were 3 years old when they became friends. Look at them now - grown men. All the years of bmx racing (even traveling to Ohio) and then all the funs times at Seminole. Kevin was always so happy to ride and watch Kody on the various tracks. He had such a glow around him. Kevin has always been an extremely positive roll model for our Cody. Just like a second dad. We will miss him terribly Sendi. Please know that we are always here for you and the kids. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you my friend. John, Cody, Alexis, & Traci
We had the pleasure to meet Kevin & his family at L Cross a year or so ago. We had taken our son, Keith, and his friend for their first track ride on their new dirt bikes. Kevin, Sendi and Shay were there and Kevin reached out to our son and gave him tips on riding. We spent the day with his family and later my son had the opportunity to meet his son and ride with him. He and his family were gracious and endearing and they touched a part of our souls that is reserved for the people you call "friends".
His obituary is moving and well articulated. Though you may not know how you touched us that day, your graciousness and kindness has stayed with us.
Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
Woody, Kelly and Keith Boyle
My thoughts and prayers are with the Goss family at this time in their lives. May God bless you all.
I was deeply touched by the words in the obituary describing Mr. Goss. He must have been a very special man and an even better dad. Please accept my condolences and prayers for him and his family.
