Kenneth Goehl

Kenneth Goehl, age 80, of Fowler, IL, passed to his eternal resting place on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at his home surrounded by his family.

Kenneth enjoyed the outdoors, tending to his garden, riding horses and having coffee with his "coffee groups". The thing that he enjoyed most was the time spent talking and being with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was extremely proud of each and every one of them and they all brought joy to his heart.

Condolences to Kenny’s family on his loss. He was a good colleague at CIPS and Ameren, an expert at what he did in service to those we served. His many Hardee’s pals are going to miss his early morning laughter. God bless his soul.
