Earney Robert Goetz

August 25, 1931 - July 9, 2016


Earney Robert Goetz passed away on Saturday, July 9, 2016, at the Kimberley Special Care Home. Born in Franklin Manitoba, Earney travelled west to BC in early 1949 to visit family and decided to stay. He worked for many years for Cominco in Kimberley and retired as a shift supervisor. He was a member of the Elks and enjoyed playing on the Elks bowling teams. Dad also loved to curl, ski, play pool and travel with his wife Lorna. He enjoyed amazing his grandchildren with his card and magic tricks. Dad also spent many hours playing cards, checkers, and crib with family and friends. Dad is survived by his three children: daughter Jennifer (Steve) of Calgary, AB; son Brian of Kimberley, BC; and son Stephen (Chalsi) of North Vancouver, BC. Dad also leaves behind five grandchildren Christopher, Lauren, Bradley, Ryan and Stephanie, one great grand-daughter, Brooklyn, and many nieces and nephews and one brother, Albert. Dad was predeceased by his wife Lorna, his father, mother, three brothers and five sisters. The family would like to thank all the staff at the Kimberley Special Care Home for their exceptional care and support of our father. Dad has requested that no funeral service be held but there will be a celebration of dad's life at the Elks Club in Kimberley on August 25, 2016 from 2 – 4pm. Dad had a friendly smile and a contagious “chuckle” that we will miss very much. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kimberley Society for Community Living, 440 -106 Ave, Kimberley, BC V1A 1B9. Memories and condolences can also be shared with the family at
