ForeverMissed

A beloved husband, and father of three daughters, David John Goss lived in Durban/ Joburg,  during the last 18years of his life. It was there that he met his wife, Karen Strydom, and the couple started a family.

David had  2 brothers, one younger sister,  who were raised in his home. His mother Ann Hargrave died 2003 at home. His older brother Patrick Goss passed on in 2006 of cancer. David took his brother 's passing very hard but kept going for his beatiful wife and children & grandchildren.

He met his wife, Karen  at Atlas Commando, where  he joint the army and became one of the best SM in the army. A gentle, soft-spoken man of great intelligence and ability, his daughters Liezel, Rose and Angie recall his humor, He was the youngest man to ever become and SM in the army, and always had something clever and witty to say when a difficult situation arose. He was known for his poise and composure & disipline as well has his refined wit and ability to make others laugh.

All who knew him recall a refined wit and sense of humor, a very personable man of great kindness and courtesy. We love our " Dutchman & Pommy" and miss him very much.
