Brian Goatham Obituary
Brian Goatham

On January 7, 2016, Brian Frank Goatham passed from our earthly world to God's heavenly presence. He was the son of Nancy and William Goatham, now deceased. He married Judy Ann Balliet and celebrated over 40 years of marriage. He is now with her in heaven. Brian's career began in a small photo shop as a teenager and blossomed into commercial photography for the next 50 years, most of those years with System Development Corporation in Santa Monica, California. During his tenure with SDC, he met and photographed many people - scientists, astronauts, cosmonauts, leaders in aerospace, actors, etc. – and was the photographer chosen to document, through pictures, the annual Air Force Ball. He prepared countless pamphlets, advertising materials of all kinds and in-house information. He photographed high-level meetings and events and people from all walks of life. He became a great co-worker and friend to many people in business and personal relationships. He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Alan and Brenda Goatham and their children. Rest in peace my dear friend. Visit www.lafuneral.com to send the family messages and share memories. Sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com.
