Arlen J. Goff

june 2, 1936 – june 10, 2024

Arlen J. Goff

With deep sadness but also immense gratitude and love, we announce the upcoming services for our beloved Arlen J. Goff, a proud member of the US Air Force and esteemed veteran of the Royal Order of Typhoon Goons. Throughout his remarkable service, Arlen chased 16 typhoons, showcasing his bravery and dedication.

Arlen, born on June 2, 1936, in Somerset, KY, displayed an unwavering love for his family. He met the love of his life, Kathleen, in front of his beloved 1959 Chevy Convertible Impala, and knew she was the one. Their enduring love story spanned 63 years, providing a beacon of joy and inspiration for all who knew them.

Known for his sharp and casual style, Arlen enjoyed wearing printed cars shirts and had a knack for dad jokes that never failed to bring laughter to his family. He had a great sense of humor and delighted in spending time with his grandchildren, attending their sporting events and sharing his love for chocolate donuts with white icing.

Arlen’s favorite vacation spot was Gatlinburg, TN, where he relished creating unforgettable memories with his family. His passion for family gatherings and creating cherished moments will forever live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Left to cherish his memory is his beautiful wife Katie, his daughters Sheila Fancher and Arleen (Robert) Harlow, his grandchildren Shannon, Isaac and Dmitry, great grandchildren Jadelyn, Kadin, Oakley and Genesis, as well as many extended family and friends.

Arlen was preceded in death by his parents, Oscar and Maudie Goff (nee Brown) and his sister Glenna Burriss.

The family will be celebrating the life of Arlen J. Goff at the Arlington Memorial Gardens Lakeside Mausoleum Chapel, 2145 Compton Road, 45231.

Though Arlen’s physical presence may be gone, his spirit, love, and laughter will always be cherished and remembered.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to a veterans’ charity in Arlen’s honor. Rest in peace, Arlen, knowing you are deeply loved and remembered by all whose lives you touched.
