Steve was a family man who loved their annual family Gooch fishing and beach trips, and their family July 4th fish fry, celebrating him and our independence. He enjoyed trips to Cherokee, scratch offs, and especially loved Nascar and fishing. Steve was a man of his word and gladly did so much for so many. He will be dearly missed by all.

He is survived by his son, David Gooch (Talitha); daughter, Jantzen Gooch (Justin); granddaughters, Dagen Hussey and Sammi Overton, whom he cherished and loved dearly; brother, Richard Gooch; and sisters, Janie Morgan of Eldorado, Linda Karriker and Kaye Norris. Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife, Janice Norris Gooch; brothers, Brownie Gooch, Bill Gooch, Reginald Gooch, Phillip Gooch; and sisters, Brenda Maness and Shelby Jean Gooch.
