Clyde Eldredge Goin

Dallas - May 17, 1932 - July 28, 2020

Clyde was born in a two-room home on the Kilpatrick Ranch in Imperial, NE to Everett Elijah Goin and Carrie Amy Octavia Sparks Goin. He was the tenth of eleven children, coming to Albany, OR at the age of seven and graduating from Jefferson High School, Jefferson, OR. One sister survives, Norma Nordyke, Tigard, OR. Clyde married Marilyn Ruth Miller in 1951. They would have celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary August 12. Two loving daughters, JoAnn (Hartley) Kidd, Anderson, IN Kayleen (Steve) Brown Surprise, AZ, and wife Marilyn of Dallas, OR, survive. Also five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

As a young father and husband, Clyde worked ten years Mayflower Milk, Salem, making home deliveries and was known as the "Whistling Milkman".

Clyde was a minister of the gospel for 55 years, serving five years in Australia, 14 years in Wyoming and remaining years in Springfield and Newberg, OR. Clyde had a strong bass voice which gained him a role in the Salem Singers, choirs, quartets and singing with his wife and daughters. He loved fishing and hunting - deer, antelope, moose, elk and bear in Wyoming and kangaroo, wild pig and fox in the outback of Australia. But his greatest joy was sharing the love of Christ with everyone. His favorite gospel artists were the Gaithers and the Booth Brothers.

The family extends their heartfelt thanks for the tender loving care Clyde received from Brighton Hospice. A memorial service will be held at a later time. Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center is caring for the family. www.dallastribute.com.

My late husband George and I so appreciated the friendship we had when they lived and pastored in Worland, WY. We had such special times playing music together in the church. I have many memories and will always cherish them. With my love, Diane Hartley

No matter how Clyde felt in later years, when you would visit him & Marilyn, he always had that same smile. Godly, tender and kind man.

We met the Goins in Evangelical Bible Church, Dallas, OR...Marv and Clyde became fast friend and always talked "fishing", something they both enjoyed. Marilyn is a wonderful pianist and we loved visiting with them. Our prayers are with the family during this difficult time, but we have HOPE in Jesus and we'll meet again in Heaven for Eternity!

We had the privilege of living next door to Clyde & Mariyln in Springfield, then visiting them in Wyoming. We remember their kindness and were saddened when they moved.
May God comfort each of you as you look to the hope of tomorrow.
