Jack Goggans Obituary

Jack Goggans, 65, from Temple, Texas passed peacefully on Sunday, November 27, 2022. He is survived by his children Leah Simmons (Daniel), Jake Goggans (Allie), Trenton Jones (Caitlin), and Anna Norman (Colton). His grandchildren Hayden (Alexis), Bo Briggs, Sutton, Brantley, Walker, and soon-to-be Sedona Mae admiringly called him Big Jack. Survivors also include his sisters Debra Dean (Leon), Dr. Jill Bryant (Scott), sister-in-law Sallie Davis (Dirk), beloved in-laws Ret. Col. W.D. and Joan Ray, and many precious nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his wife Julie and his parents Delbert and Martha Goggans.    

Jack was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, lived in Oxford, Alabama for most of his life, and has called Texas his home for over a decade. From an early age, Jack was full of life and possessed an air of charisma. He found joy in coaching youth baseball and football and impacted many lives along the way. Jack was the ultimate encourager and will be remembered for his quick wit, infamous sayings, charming personality, competitive spirit, and infectious laugh. He was an avid golfer, a huge fan of The University of Alabama Crimson Tide, a master of crossword puzzles, and a creative poet. Jack loved the beach, had excellent taste in music, and appreciated a nice ride in a convertible.    

A special thank you to Jack’s colleagues at Mac Haik where he loved and appreciated his career and his work family. Sincere appreciation is also extended to Baylor Scott and White Medical Center for their care and compassion. Jack was not bashful about his faith and shared it every chance he could. His family takes comfort in knowing Jack is reunited with Julie and they are in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Jack would want to be remembered when you feel the need to go for a drive, roll down the windows, and turn up some good rock and roll.    

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Jack’s memory to The First Presbyterian Church of Salado, Texas or Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in Temple, Texas.
