GOEBEL, Robert Kenneth (Bobby “G”) of Lakefield

Posted by on May 19, 2015

GOEBEL, Robert Kenneth (Bobby “G”)
Bob Goebel passed away of coronary heart disease at age 75 on April 22, 2015 in his home in Lakefield, Ontario. Born on November 25, 1939 in Spruce Grove, Alberta to Fred and Wanda Goebel, he was the youngest of five brothers, and was the clown and trouble maker. Growing up on a farm was harsh in the 1940s, but Bob told funny stories to us kids such as riding to school by horse wagon, and he never lost his love for rich farms foods and the eastern European baking like his mother provided on the farm. He left home early for a first career in junior hockey with the Edmonton Oil Kings in the 1950s, where he played left wing. Injury ended that career and meanwhile he had met Anne Miller, a young beauty in Edmonton whom he married in 1960. Bob and Anne had three children, Patrick (born 1961), Allison (born 1963) and Beth (born 1970). The family moved to Port Hope, Ontario in the early 1960s where Bob took up his first teaching post at Trinity College School. He taught math and coached many sports teams. Luckily, Bob was a brain as well as a jock, and he earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees along the way. The family moved to Timmins, Ontario in the late 1970s where Bob taught math at Timmins High and Vocational School. But it was his third and final teaching post at Lakefield College School, Lakefield, Ontario, which he took up in the early 1980s where Bob finally found his true home. He adored the school, the staff, and students. He continued on as a tutor after his formal retirement at aged 65, and there was no other place he’d rather spend his days. His proudest achievement was his teaching ability—he could teach math to anybody. He is legendary in the family for teaching his grandson Gabes the entire grade 11 math syllabus in a weekend, and Gabes aced his exam! Bob’s marriage ended in divorce in the early 1990s, but he remained a loved member of the family. He leaves son Patrick, daughters Allison and Beth, grand-children Jennifer, Adriane, Gabriel and Aiden, and great-granddaughter Anne. A private celebration of life for family, friends and colleagues was held at Lakefield College School. For more information contact: John Runza (JRunza@lcs.on.ca)
