Robert Leon Goin(1956-2013)

Robert Leon Goin has gone on to heaven. He was born September 22, 1956 to Ruben and Patricia Goin. Older brother to Jeff and Steve Goin. Husband to Tracy Goin for 30 years, Father to Rachel, Sarah, Rebekah, Michealah, and Abigail. Father in law to Shilah Goin, Grandfather to Ezekiel, Kiley, and Azariel Goin, and hero, mentor and friend to me, his firstborn and only son Kiel Goin.
My dad's life was too short but not lacking. A graduate of Casa Roble High School class of 1974, A Private First Class in the army, a Salesman, Retail Manager, Minister, and most recognizably a Barber. He was a man who after 30 minutes in his chair knew where you were from, what you did and all about your family. A man who once you left his Barber shop you considered him a friend; a man whose influence spreads across this valley. To this day I am stopped by strangers who say they know me because they once met my Dad.
His memorial service will be held Saturday February 9, 2 pm. At Zion Reformed Church, 105 S. Ham Ln., Lodi, California. Memorial Contributions in Rob's honor can be sent to Answers Church-Growth Fund, PO Box 982892, Elk Grove, CA 95758
