WHITE STONE—William Stephen Goss, 71, of White Stone, known by all as “Bill,” left this Earth to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. He was surrounded by family and loved ones.
Born January 15, 1947, Bill never met a stranger; once he started talking, you may as well sit down because you knew you’d be there for a while. The Voice will always be remembered as a man who cared deeply for his family, his years at WKWI and WWND as a radio DJ, the only Texaco to ever hit a home run out of the State Penitentiary, and a United States Marine, an honor he wore proudly.
Bill is predeceased by his parents, Lee A. Goss and Virginia Davis Goss.
He is survived by his significant other, Charleen Lea; sister, Adele Shotwell (Alan); daughters, Sheila Goss, Maeghaen Eley (Jack) and Rachel Gaghan (Sue); son, Kevin Gaghan (Christen); grandsons, Joshua Meador, Mason Bland, Adam Bland, Otto and Brody Eley; granddaughter, Kelseigh Meador; and great-granddaughter, Natalyn Meador; as well as a number of nieces, nephews and cousins.
A memorial service was held at 2 p.m. Saturday, February 17, at White Stone United Methodist Church. A private graveside service will follow at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bill’s memory to Veterans Service Foundation, 101 North 14th Street, 17th Floor, Richmond VA 23219. Please include a note on the memo line that it is for VVFS – Virginia Veteran and Family Support.
Currie Funeral Home LLC of Kilmarnock handled the arrangements.
