Robert 'Bob' Goff, 12th Grade MVHS Social Studies and American History Teacher and a 50 year career in state government & public relations.
Goff, Robert "Bob" age 80, died peacefully at his St. Paul home on March 29, 2017. Loved by his family as an aspiring but unconvincing curmudgeon and a devoted husband, father and grandfather, his humor and generous spirit will be missed. Bob is survived by his wife Phyllis; children Cindy, Paul (Annette), Carolyn (Steve), Laura (Cliff), Bill (Marsha), Emily (Ricardo), and Matt (Caitlin); 12 adoring grandchildren; siblings Dick, Bill and Sandy; and whole bunches of nieces and nephews. A celebration of life reception will be held at the Minnesota History Center on Monday, April 10, from 2:30-4:30 p.m., with a brief program at 3 p.m. Memorials are preferred to the Minnesota Historical Society, Regions Hospital Foundation, or HealthPartners Hospice.
