17 JULY 2010

Captain Thomas C. Goslin, Jr., of Pensacola, FL passed away on Saturday, July 17, 2010.
He is survived by his son, Thomas C. Goslin, III, who was his proudest accomplishment; daughter-in-law, Mary Ellen, who he thought of as a daughter; and granddaughter, Rebecca, the jewel of his life.
A Captain in the Navy, he and his late-wife, Betty, loved the Navy lifestyle of exploring new places and making friends. After retirement, Captain Goslin enjoyed volunteering for the National Museum of Naval Aviation as a continuation of his love for the Navy.
While Tom will be greatly missed by his friends and loved-ones here on earth, now he and his beloved Betty will be joined together again, to rest in eternity.
A memorial service for Tom will be held on Thursday, July 22, 2010 at 4:00 p.m. at the Oak Lawn Funeral Home, 619 New Warrington Rd., Pensacola, FL.

Tom was a very good friend and somewhat of a father figure to me. I met him working on computers at the museum. He and Betty will both live on in my heart forever. Bless the Goslin Family.

My wife and I volunteered with Tom at the National Naval Aviation Museum on Wednesdays for years. At social events we always tried to arrange seating with he and Betty, and after her passing we encouraged him to come and socialize with us at such events.
Tom was highly thought of by all that knew him. He will surely be missed by all of us. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
