Article by Lynette Coil

It is with a heavy heart that we received word from John Lamkemeyer that Charles Goggin (his mentor) passed away on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018 to be with the love of his life, best friend and wife, Ruth.  Ironically, it was 4 years to the date that Ruth passed away and now they are together in eternal rest.  Charles picked out the picture he wanted posted when he moved onto the next life with joy, peace, sunshine, no pain and run his beagles and visit with all those who have moved on before him.

It was March 14th when he was sent home from the hospital with terminal cancer.  Charles is 87 years old and has definitely made an impact not only to our sport, but anything he undertook; he did with his all.  He really appreciated the phone calls and cards that he received.

As many of you know, Charles Goggin is from Missouri and the home of Triple G Beagles. He was in beagling in his 20's and has always been instrumental to Eastern Missouri Beagle Club. He has been Field Trial Secretary, President and Vice President for the last 20+ years. In 1988 he was inducted into the Brace Beagling Hall of Fame. Many of us were in Pittsburgh and witnessed him receiving this great honor; and of course, his wife and best friend, Ruth was by his side. In 1992 Charles and Ruth Goggin received the Breeder Hall of Fame Award. Also in 1992 and 1993 he served as President of the Southern. Charles and Ruth supported beagling on all levels and their Triple G Beagles were a force to reckon with. They supported license trials, sanction trials, the associations and the federations and he judged them all and guided many. In 2014 Charles came to the Midwestern at Rolling Fork and received the Producing Dam Award for Triple G Nessa. There are definitely many years of memories, stories and good times in the last 60+ years and he has had quite a saga.

We fondly remember Charles and his stories and jokes. You are definitely in our thoughts and prayers. Thank You for all your blessings and lessons through the years. You have been a great friend and a true treasure!  You will live on in our hearts through the memories, teachings and stories through the years! Rest In Peace My Friend!

We will post full obituary once received.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
