The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, Oct 19, 1911
Goff - Brother G. B. Goff died at his home in Saginaw, Michigan, Sept 5, 1911. Brother Goff united with the Seventh-Day Adventist church at Edenville some forty years ago. For several years he was firm in the message: later he became discouraged. During the past few years after giving up his active work, he was led gradually to take his stand again for the truth. He was a good to the poor, and will be missed by many who received aid at his hand.Three children, two sons and one daughter, with their families, and many realtives and friends, are left to mourn but not without hope. The funeral service was conducted by the writer. (Wm. Ostrander)
