Visitation will be from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30 at Calvary Baptist Church, 4451 10th Avenue, Leavenworth, KS, with services on Wednesday, July 1, at 11:00 a.m., at the church. Burial will be at the National Cemetery in Leavenworth. Bob was born on December 5, 1931 to Ralph and Lydia Goff in Leavenworth. He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Jerry. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Charlotte, of the home; one son, Michael (Bobbi) of Leawood, KS; granddaughter Erin (Brett) Lambert of Leawood, KS; grandson Jared (fiancé-Kayla Kerschen), Lawrence, KS; and a very special great- granddaughter, Leslie Charlotte Lambert. He is also survived by his brother Ray (Mary Ann) of Olathe, KS. Bob was absolutely devoted to his Lord and to his family. He was a lifetime member of Calvary Baptist Church and held the oldest membership longevity in the church. Throughout his many years of service to the Lord, Bob held the position of Deacon and was recently appointed as Deacon Emeritus of the church. He also served as Church Moderator, Sunday School teacher, Junior BYF leader, AWANA leader, and many other positions too numerous to mention. Bob also mentored several young men in the church over the past several years. Bob was very active in the Voice of the Martyrs program and had served as that group's Kansas State Representative. He and his wife visited many churches locally and across the state speaking on the history of Christian martyrs worldwide. Bob attended Leavenworth schools and graduated from Leavenworth High School in 1950. After graduation, he enlisted in the Air Force and served four years. After his discharge, he worked at Fort Leavenworth and held the position of Graphics Chief and later head of Training Aids-Strategic Operations. He retired in 1986 after 36 years of combined service. In addition to his love for his church, Bob had a love of woodcarving and was well known locally and nationally for his beautiful realistic wildfowl carvings. After his retirement, he was commissioned by Brigadier General Sullivan to carve a life-sized eagle for the Trophy Lounge in Bell Hall at Fort Leavenworth. That carving is still being displayed in the reception area of the Lewis & Clark instructional facility at Fort Leavenworth. Bob also had a passion for sports. He was a diehard fan of the University of Kansas Jayhawks and was a season-ticket holder for many years for Jayhawk football and basketball. He coached his son's youth football, basketball and baseball teams and spent many an evening and weekend on a baseball diamond or in a gym. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Robert M. Goff MemorialFund, Calvary Baptist Church, 4451 10th Avenue, Leavenworth, KS 66048. The family would also like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, KS and Twin Oaks Rehabilitation Center, Leavenworth, for their care of Bob over these past few weeks. Arrangements entrusted to Davis Funeral Chapel. Condolences may be left on Bob's online guestbook at www.davisfuneralchapelinc.com

GOOLSBEE M.D., ROBERT LEON - Kansas City  
Robert Leon Goolsbee, MD, 84, of Mission Hills, KS, died June 20, 2015 peacefully at his vacation home in Tucson, AZ. A celebration of his life will be held Friday, July 17, 2:00pm at St Paul's Episcopal Church, Kansas City, MO, where he was a member. Private family burial. Bob was born March 25, 1931, in Port Neches, TX, the son of Katie Block Goolsbee and William Nealand Goolsbee. He was an Eagle Scout and spent multiple summers at Philmont. He graduated from Port Neches High School in 1948, Baylor University in 1951, and earned his MD from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston in 1955 where he was a member of the Phi Chi Medical Fraternity. He met Betty while doing his Internship at Kansas City General Hospital. After they were married he served as a Lieutenant at the US Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, IL. In 1957 the couple moved to Galveston, TX for his Residency in Anesthesiology. While in Galveston their two daughters were born. The family then settled in Kansas City where Betty and Bob bought their dream home in Mission Hills. While always a supporter of his hometown Texas teams, Bob became an avid Jayhawk fan. Bob was a visionary in the medical field, opening one of the first freestanding outpatient surgery centers in the United States in 1978. Although he practiced anesthesia at multiple locations throughout Kansas City, the best years for him were at his Surgicenter. Dr. Goolsbee was an active member of the Society for the Advancement of Freestanding Ambulatory Surgery Care (now FASA) and a founding member of the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. He was a member of the American Medical Association, Jackson County Medical Society, Fellow of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, and Diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology. He served on the Board of Planned Parenthood of Kansas City and facilitated the start of their vasectomy clinic. Bob was an avid reader and outdoorsman, sharing his love of books, scuba diving, hunting, fishing, golf and travel with his entire family. He was a member of Ducks Unlimited and Mission Hills Country Club. He was a true gentleman, his word was his bond, and even in the final stages of Alzheimer's would greet people with a warm smile and a firm handshake. He was known for his generosity and for his calm and loving nature that could soothe any crying child. He is survived by Betty, his wife of nearly 59 years, children Barbara Bollier, MD (Rene) and MaryBeth Jackson; grandchildren Katie Jackson, Athanasiou Geolas, Anne-Marie Bollier, and Bobby Bollier; his sister Roscille Lay, brother Charles Goolsbee (Margaret) and many nieces, nephews and cousins. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to: Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, 4401 W 109th St, Suite 200, Overland Park, KS 66211; Philmont Scout Ranch Health Lodge, 17 Deer Run Rd, Cimarron, NM 87714; or The UMKC Conservatory, 4949 Cherry, Kansas City, MO 64110.
