Robert G. Goehring, 81, resident of Milford, died on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012. He was born in Holyoke, Mass., on Aug. 21, 1931, a son of Karl H. and Ruby S. (Chapman) Goehring.

Bob served in the U.S. Coast Guard from 1951 to 1954 where he went through electronics school and served on the USCGC Yakutat, a Casco Class U.S. Coast Guard Cutter.

He was married to Ruth on August 28, 1954, six days after leaving his active service. He graduated from Holyoke Junior College in 1956 and went on to work for a number of companies, including Honeywell, where he wrote technical manuals. But he was driven by his father Karl's entrepreneurial spirit and started his own successful business, Decorator's Service Company of New Hampshire, in 1976, after moving to Nashua.

He and Ruth moved to Milford in 1988. Bob was a proud member of the Immanuel Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod). He was extraordinarily proud of his children and shared in the good times and in the sad times of their marriages and their families and his grandchildren and great grandchildren. His 58-year marriage to Ruth was the rock of his life. He was proud of his successful business, where his customers loved him because he treated them as honored friends. He kept his cars spotless, his lawn mowed in straight lines, and his white wall tires pristine. In 2004, Bob and Ruth enjoyed a 50th anniversary trip to Alaska where he got to see the original Yakutat Peninsula.

He was the devoted brother of the late Richard C. Goehring, Karl E. Goehring and Glenn A. Goehring.

Burial with military honors in the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, 110 D.W. Highway, Boscawen.
