Robert A Goff- Gate City, VA

A Gate City native, he graduated from Gate City High School and ventured off to work for Bristol Compressors until he found his final work home with Tempur-Pedic.

Robert, better known as “DJ” or “Goff”, enjoyed going to work and spending time at home doing yard work or some kind of project. On his days off he would sit outside listening to music, enjoying the neighborhood.

Robert never met a stranger, and he always had a joke to tell and a smile on his face.
