Family called him Eugene, friends called him Jim, the military called him Goss, but we just called him dad and PawPaw. Retired MSGT James H.E. Goss was tired and went to rest with his Lord and Savior on April 23, 2017. Eugene was born on November 1, 1935 in Rome, Ga., to Wess and Minnie B. Goss. He joined the United States Air Force in 1954 and married Juanita Clevenger in 1955. His first assignment was Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Ga. During his 20 years of service, he was stationed from one end of the map, Eielson AFB in Fairbanks, Alaska to the other end of the map at Homestead AFB in Florida. He served in the Vietnam War and on numerous other missions all over the world before retiring in 1974. After his military retirement, he was employed with the Anniston Post Office for 20 years. After his retirement from the post office, he was a fulltime caregiver for his wife, Juanita C. Goss, and an active member of Saints John Masonic Lodge #931 in Anniston. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Juanita C. Goss; daughter, Rhonda Parks and her husband, Jim Parks; son, Jimmy Goss and his wife, Machelle Goss; grandchildren, Lindsey Lee, Christy Williams, Brittany Price; great-grandchildren, Crimson Bryant, Tatum Roberts, Waylon Price, Carly Williams and Grayson Williams, and several nieces and nephews.

Eugene will be laid to rest at Forestlawn Memorial Gardens in Anniston where he will receive Military and Masonic honors. Pallbearers will be family and friends. The family would like to extend a special thank you to caregiver, Lois Browning; all of the workers at Fresenius Kidney Care; neighbors, Steve and Julie Sherman, and to all others who have helped in numerous ways with Eugene. He leaves us rich in memories. "Day is done, gone the sun, from the lake, from the hill, from the sky. All is well. Safely rest. God is nigh…" Miller Funeral Home 256-831-4611
