GOGGAN, James -
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of James (Jim) Goggan on September 8th, 2020.
Predeceased by his parents, James and Theresa Goggan. Brother to Paul (Doreen) Goggan, Michael (Mary) Goggan, Theresa (Bill) Vermulst, and Kevin (Cindy) Goggan.
Survived by his children, Lindsay Goggan (Gary Robinson), Steven Goggan and Nicola Rogers (Adam).

Jim was born in Saint John, New Brunswick in 1952. Starting young, he worked as a mechanic on motorcycles, cars, and finally large trucks. He retired to Bancroft, Ontario where he enjoyed fishing and was an active member of the Bancroft Fish & Game Club.

Jim was a proud and devoted father, grandfather and uncle. As a father he was incredibly supportive and gave his all. As Grandfather he was patient, kind and loved them with every ounce of his being. He especially prided himself on being an amazing uncle to his nieces and nephews and always made time to be very present in their lives. He was really good at observing some small need you had and buying it for you.

He was an entertainer, a story teller supreme. His words, and the manner in which they were said, stuck with you. You’d often find yourself, years later, repeating a story he had told.

Jim always knew what to say when someone needed his guidance and offered great advice. He was a very wise man and a true treasure to his family and friends.

Mr. Goggan will be resting at W.C. TOWN FUNERAL CHAPEL, 110 Dundas Street East, Whitby, (905) 668 – 3410. Visiting will be Monday, September 21 at 10:00am, followed by a service at 11:00am. Cremation has taken place. Please contact the funeral home, or family if you would like to attend, masks are mandatory.

Our sincere condolences Theresa and Bill. We know Jimmy was just as much a best friend to you as he was a brother and brother in law. We have many great memories of Jimmy from our young adulthood’s on. From the many gatherings of all of us to Jimmy rescuing me when I was stuck on the side of the road to shooting pool in Jimmy’s living room. There are so many great memories that we will never forget. Sadly, he will be missed but lovingly he will be remembered.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you
Love Jim and Carolyn
