John Goeb, age 81, of Julian, California, died Sunday, March 10, 2013. He was born to the late Charles and Annabelle Goeb on June 24, 1931, in San Diego, California. John was married to his late wife, Charlotte Scales Allen, on October 18, 1951. When they married, Charlotte had two young daughters, Peggy and Carolyn.
John was a production engineer for Convair until a health event prompted him to change his career path to a licensed tax preparer. He faithfully served the San Diego Back Country community preparing taxes for residents, businesses and charitable organizations through his many years living in the community.
John was most recently an active member of the Hillside Church in Julian, and enjoyed the fellowship and support from that church family as well as from his many friends from the Julian Community United Methodist Church. He was known for his love and participation in Christian music performances and programs. He was a strong supporter of the Julian High School Athletics programs for many years and a contributor to multiple charitable endeavors.
John is survived by one brother, Julian Goeb of San Diego, California; five grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and two nieces.
