Don Goin, age 77 of Bruner, Missouri took his flight to Heaven, early Tuesday morning, March 31, 2020. He was born September 23, 1942 in Oldfield, Missouri the son of Olen and Fay Goin.
During his childhood, Don lived in Washington state and later moved to Ava, Missouri as a teenager. In 1966, Don was united in marriage to Carol Thompson and together they shared 53 years of marriage. They planted their roots in Bruner where they raised two daughters, Ambrea and Tina.
Don worked hard supporting his family doing masonry and construction work. He also took great pride in raising Angus cattle, working his farmland and caring for his family. As a small child it was evident that Don was also blessed as a talented artist. His passion and creativity grew throughout his life and later became his full time profession. From paintings to bronze sculptures, Don sold his pieces all over the United States. He won many awards for his beautiful pieces and was never happier than when he was working in his foundry.
Don is survived by his loving wife Carol (Thompson) Goin; two caring daughters Ambrea Payne and husband Kevin of Sparta, Missouri and Tina Bentch of Battlefield, Missouri. Don truly loved and was involved in the lives of his three grandsons, Taylor Payne and wife Kelsey, Austin Payne and Easton Bentch. He also held great joy for his great-grandson Beckett Payne. Don will be sadly missed but he will live on in the hearts of his family and many friends.
Celebration of Life services will be announced for Don at a later date, and will be held in Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark. On line condolences may be shared at www.barnesfamilyfunerals.com
