Obituary

Robert "Bob" Duane Goetzke went to be with our Lord on September 4, 2017 at the age of 81 years after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.

He was born on June 8, 1936 in Fairview, Montana. After growing up in Montana, he joined the U.S. Army. He was a decorated soldier who honorably served his country in the Vietnam War. He retired from the Army as a Master sergeant and went on to a career with the U.S. Postal Service.

Family was everything to Bob. He was devoted to his wife, Mary Ellen, and lovingly cared for her during her battle with cancer. He found great joy in his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and loved attending sport's events, school plays, and assemblies.

He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Harry John Goetzke, his mother, Iva Merle Goetzke, his beloved wife, Mary Ellen Goetzke, and one brother and three sisters.

He is survived by his daughter, Karen Edwards-Fisher; son, James Robert Goetzke (Jaqueline); daughter, Dr. Elizabeth Hays (Dr. Allan Hays) and son, Paul Duane Goetzke (Dana Marie); grandchildren, Daniel Edwards (Heather), Matthew Fisher (Mikka), Rachel, Nathan and Sarah Hays, Kylie, Greyson and Elaina Goetzke and great grandchildren, Braylon and Madison Edwards.

2 Timothy 4:7-8 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness."

The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., on Sunday, September 17, 2017, at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
