Thomas R. Goss of Commerce City, Colorado passed away March 12, 2017 in Westminster, Colorado. Thomas was born February 20, 1925 in Norrisville, Maryland to Lyda E. and Etta Mae (Cornett) Goss. He married Ina Ozette Cox in Hickory, Maryland and relocated to Colorado in 1947. He worked in different jobs until he found his love -- driving trucks. Thomas and Ina moved to Commerce City, Colorado, bought a home and raised three children. Thomas retired from Western Paving after 20 plus years of service. He wanted to travel. His prayers were answered when he began driving for Welby Gardens as he delivered flowers all over the country. Not only was he delivering beautiful flowers, he was able to take in the beautiful scenery across the country. He retired once again from Welby Gardens and took to being a Snowbird. He and Ina bought RV's throughout the following years so they and their dog could be on the road. They made lots of new friends during their travels. In between these adventures they were able to be of help to their children and grandchildren. Thomas is preceded in death by his wife, Ina. He is survived by his daughter Barbara (David) Dill of Arvada, Colorado; sons David (Karen) Goss of Commerce City, Colorado and Darrell (Karen) Goss of Owasso, Oklahoma; 7 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren; 3 sisters; and 2 brothers.
