GOFF, Evan George
Was brought into this world in a very special way on August 27, 1991. He was called home to be with his Lord and Savior on June 23, 2012. Even though Evan's life on earth was short he left an amazing impact on those who knew and loved him. Evan faced many difficult challenges in his life, he was brave and fought a hard fight. He had a strong will and what he set out to do he did. He was funny, smart, compassionate, loving, and creative. He enjoyed cooking, clay target shooting, air soft, spending time with his family and friends watching movies, listening to music, making pottery, and experiencing all that life had to offer. He had a very special place in his heart for the youth and youth leaders at Faith Legacy Church and church camp. Evan enjoyed being a volunteer for the California Council of the Blind during their annual conventions since 2006.
He is survived by George and Angelia Goff who have been blessed and honored to be his loving father and mother. He will be greatly missed by his granna Donna Wilson and papa-t Terry Wilson, uncle Tony (Anthony) Mitchell, aunt Irene Mitchell, aunt Beth (Elizabeth) Mitchell-Collord, uncle Larry Collord, aunt Linda Palmer, cousins Ron Mitchell, Carli Collord, Cameron Collord, Cathy Finkbeiner, Ginni Stafford, and many loving great aunts, uncles, & cousins. As well as, birthmother Misty Smith, brother Derek Ackley, grandmother Joyce Smith, Dawn Boulanger, cousin CJ Smith, Scott Smith, birthfather Timothy Ackley, half brother Michael Ackley, and half sisters Heather Barker & Heidi Ackley.
A very special thank you to the skill and dedication of the Santa Clara Kaiser Heart Transplant Clinic doctors, nurses and staff who took the very best care of Evan they could possibly have. As well as the hospital nursing staff in unit 220 and 232 who some call Evan friend.
A memorial service will be held June 30, 2012, 10:00 a.m. at Faith Legacy Church 3532 Whitney Av Sacramento, CA 95821. All who love Evan and who have been touched by him are welcome.
