Obituary for WILLIAM R. GOEPFERT

WILLIAM RAY GOEPFERT, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, teacher, coach and friend passed away on Nov. 22 at the age of 67. He filled our lives with his kindness, humor and spirit.

He is survived by Nancy (nee Lasko), his wife of 37 years, sons Alex (Angela), Justin, Danny and Barry, grandchildren Zoe and Kai, siblings Mary Sikela, Sue Traut, Ruth Manning, Tom (Kathy) and Amy and sister-in laws Janet Lofgren (Bill) and Barb Groves. Son of the late Ray and Kathryn Goepfert.

Bill was a committed educator for more than 30 years, most of those at Bay Village Middle School where he taught math and proudly coached the boys basketball and track teams. He rose early each morning and relished feeling like he had made a difference at the end of the day.

Bill made life fun with a diverse array of interests which, like his illustrious mustache, evolved with the times. He was a smooth-swinging golfer, fearless do-it-yourselfer, cross-fit enthusiast and talented maker of submarine sandwiches, who never skimped on the capicola. He maintained equally diverse friendships, many of which dated back to his youth in Rocky River and college days at Ohio State. He had a buddy wherever he went.

Celebration of life calling hours will be at McGORRAY-HANNA FUNERAL HOME OF WESTLAKE (25620 Center Ridge Rd, West of Columbia) on MONDAY, Nov. 27 from
3 - 7 pm. The Funeral Mass will take place at Saint Colman’s Catholic Church (2027 West 65th, Cleveland) on Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 10 am. (PLEASE MEET AT CHURCH). Interment private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Saint Colman’s Outreach Ministry in Bill’s memory.
