Wes Goheen passed away on Nov. 17, 2006, in Everett. Wes was born in 1930 in Minot, North Dakota, and married Amy Enochson of Havre, in 1950.
Back then, Wes ran a harvesting team that gypsied from farm to farm throughout the wheat belt. With marriage, he settled into the car business, first in Anaconda, Montana, and then he owned a Chrysler agency in Coeur dAlene, Idaho. Wes lost nothing of his Mont. wit during the change, proving that you can take the boy out of the country, but you cant take the country out of the boy.
The Goheens moved to Marysville, Wash. in 1966. Wes continued selling cars and trucks in Seattle, until his last career change when he designed and operated an amphibious pile driver he operated on local lakes and waterways until retirement.
Wes leaves his loving and devoted wife, Amy; and two daughters, Lorie (John) Hulbert of Marysville, and Paula (Ron) Steinman of Shoreline, Washington; grandchildren Amy (Paul) Lagerquist of Tacoma and Matt Branscome of Everett; brother-in-law Bill Connolly of Anaconda; and nephews Mike and Mark Connolly.
Wes was preceded in death by his parents, Clayton and Tomina; and sister, Judy Connolly.
All remember Wes for his Montana bred warm heart. He never lost the character building stamp of the high plains nor the earthy country sayings that spiced his conversation. He will be missed.
A service of remembrance will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 2, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, in Marysville. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Providence Hospice or the memorial fund of Bethlehem Lutheran Church where Wess faith in God blossomed.
