Robert W. Goeckel, 78

| March 28, 2021 1:00 PM

Robert W. Goeckel, also affectionately known as “Geck,” completed his extraordinary life here on March 22, 2021. He was born Nov. 7, 1942 in Bremerton, Wash., to Matilda (nee: Orr) Goeckel and George Goeckel. Robert served his country in the Army with honor and lived his life with integrity.

A true Montana son, Robert was schooled in Missoula. He graduated high school in Frenchtown and improved the community welfare daily as a professional overhead lineman.

Robert is survived by the love of his life and wife of almost 16,000 days, Christina Goeckel, and his loving children and grandchildren.

And finally … to Robert; for all the good you did, for all the lives you saved, and for being exactly who you are, we love you and we thank you.
