Jeff, Bob and Mark, I was so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing last night.  I have so many wonderful memories of all us sitting on my front porch and bikes in the front yard when the pool closed bc of a rain storm, 4th of July and lots of other times. We all had such great fun growing up in Prospect and Radnor.   I know Tom will be missed.  My God wrap his arms around you and your families during this time and give you peace. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Jeff, Bob, and Mark; I was saddened to hear of Tom's passing.  In 1975-76, Tom and I shared an apartment in Toledo while he returned to the University.  That was an intense time, but I remember Tom fondly.  I've always admired the way you four brothers stuck together, and know that you will miss Tom. I pray for comfort for each of you.

To all Goyer folk,
Oh my too many good and fun memories.Given Tom's years as a UT Catcher...I remember ...at least 30 years past his days as a Rocket riding in a car with Tom Duncan,a football player at UT when Tom was there....it was amazing Tom Goyer had Tom Duncan smiling endlessly as I swear he was giving stories and descriptions of about 50 plus UT football players,including nicknames.It was a joy and amazing all of his remembering.
Godspeed Tom ...off to a peaceful and comforting place.
Crazy John....aka JD

Jeff, I am so sad to learn of the loss of your brother, Tom. Years of fun together riding the bikes to Prospect for ice cream at Abe's, while camping out in the woods, climbing the tressel, and playing pool to the songs of the Beatles in your "pool" room. And many more memories flashing through my mind of our fun together growing up in the country side. So sorry Goyer guys and family. Tom
