The Rev. William James “Buddy” Goss, 64, of Danville, was called home on Tuesday Jan. 26, 2021 surrounded by his family.
He was born July 12, 1956 to the late Paul Thomas and Mary Willie (Daniels) Goss in Indianapolis.
He attended North Central High School. He married the love of his life Phyllis Ann (Crabtree) Goss on Feb. 4, 1974 and they began their life together.
Mr. Goss went to work for Schneider Trucking, driving a truck. He soon realized after working long hours and being away for days from his family that he should move on from trucking. So he started working as a mechanic. It was while he was doing that work when he was offered another opportunity to work for Fox Pools of Indianapolis. He retired from Fox after 27 years of service.
Mr. Goss always felt that he had a higher calling to serve his Lord and Savior and he became a minister, serving at New Winchester Baptist Church until his retirement on Aug. 16, 2020. The Rev. Goss loved his Lord and Savior, not only did he share this with his congregation but with his family and friends. He loved his family more than life itself and spending time with all of them was his greatest joy.
