Russell R. GoehlRussell R. "Russ" Goehl, 81, of 6231 Horseshoe Valley Road, died Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, at his home. He was born Sept. 6, 1935, in Fowler, a son of Raymond and Johanna Bockenfeld Goehl. He married Annette Ashdown on June 22, 1957, in Elmhurst. She survives.

Russ was a partner in the law firm of Goehl, Schuering, Cassens and Bier, practicing law in the Quincy area for over 55 years. Russ was honored by the Illinois State Bar Association for 50 years of practicing law. He was dedicated to his profession and was a mentor to many people throughout his career.

Russ was an ideal man who had a passion for life and touched many people with his rigorous life journey. Russ came from a family of dedicated farmers, and he loved riding his horses and giving Sunday buggy rides.

Most of all, Russ loved his family unconditionally. He treated his children and grandchildren as though each was his favorite, and that each of their activities were equally and vitally important to him. He was a model family man and was loved by all.

In later years, Russ also loved an afternoon ride in his 1929 Model A. He always had a trip to St. Louis on his calendar to go see his beloved St. Louis Cardinals play ball. Along with family gatherings and visiting local establishments, Russ was a guy who enjoyed a cold beverage. Russ was involved in numerous charities and organizations that proved his commitment and compassion to what was important to him. He cherished his friends, and was known as the guy with the contagious smile and a handshake that stood for "You're a great friend." He lived life to the fullest, and his vibrant spirit will be deeply missed.
