During their retirement, they traveled with their 5th Wheel throughout much of the West living in places such as Brenda AZ, Warrenton, MO, Minneapolis, MN and several places in Colorado prior to settling in Fort Collins in 2005. Joe worked in management and sales of Ford Tractors and other heavy duty industrial equipment throughout his career. He also did some farming early on in his career. Joe was a devout Catholic; a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion and was an all around kind and nice man to be around. He is survived by his three children, Jim Goebel of Westminster, CO, Barbara Jo Kuhnley of Isanti, MN and Michael Goebel of Plymouth, MN; four grandchildren, Joe, Jeff, Kathy and Kristy; and 3 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Trudy, granddaughter, Julie (who died in 2004); and eight brothers and sisters. Joe’s family requests that any memorial donations please be made to the Franciscan Missionaries, Catholic Charities or the St. Vincent DePaul Society in his name.
