Carl B Gould

April 16, 1936November 18, 2020

Carl Bond Gould of Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania passed away peacefully on November 18, 2020 at his home. He was the lovingly loyal husband of Ann Marie (Dorshimer) Gould with whom he shared 64 years of marriage. Born on April 16, 1936, he was the son of James and Dorothy Gould of Effort, Pennsylvania. Carl was a 1954 graduate of Chestnuthill High School where he participated in the Future Farmers of America (FFA) serving as President of the club in 1952-1953. Most significant is that it was where, in 1950, he met his wife to be. During his early adult years he worked in the family dairy/poultry operations in Effort, delivered dairy products for Pine Hill Farms and Monroe County Dairy, built and installed custom cabinetry for Effort Woodcraft and began experimenting with truck farming on his 10 acres in Brodheadsville, later to become Gould’s Produce. In 1988, Carl and Ann enlarged the Gould’s Produce business to be housed on Frable Road in a red barn market, where it is still housed and operated today by the family. Carl served in the United States Army Reserves from 1955 to 1960. Carl volunteered with the West End Fire Company (50+ years), Pleasant Valley All-Sports Club (founding member), Zion United Lutheran Church (Council Member), and other various organizations. He was an avid attendee of Pleasant Valley (PV) sporting events during his sons’ and grandsons’ years of athletics. Carl’s legacy is remembered and passed on through his three sons: Carl [Chuck] Bond Gould II, Russell and Denise Gould, Michael and Lori Gould), four grandchildren: Jamie Gould [and Teia Mitchell], Matt Gould [and Briar], Jessica (Gould) Dye [and Ashton], Megan Gould [and Matt Kauzlaric]), and eleven great grandchildren (Bryana, Kayla, Johnny, Lane, Parker, Easton, Grant, Kamryn, Rhett, Kent, and expected baby Dye). Carl is survived by his wife: Ann Marie (Dorshimer) Gould, his sisters: Phyllis Conklin and Judy Bush, and sister-in-law Francis Dorshimer. He is predeceased by a daughter-in-law: Elaine Gould. A memorial service will be scheduled for a later date. Burial will be at a private service for immediate family. In lieu of flowers, the Gould family asks for donations to be made in Carl’s name for an All-Accessible Fishing Pier at Silver Valley Natural Area c/o Chestnuthill Township, P.O.Box 243, Route 715 South, Brodheadsville, PA 18322.

Dear Ann and family,
I have many wonderful memories of living in Saylorsburg. Among them, working at Gould's Produce with you and Carl. Carl was one of the most genuine, hardworking men I've had the pleasure of knowing. He also had a fun sense of humor.
One day I was talking to a customer about corn. "This is Silver Floss, and it's very sweet!" Oh, I went on about that corn. After the customer paid and left, Carl said, "Bonnie, you got the silver part right, but Silver Floss is sauerkraut!" "This corn is Silver Queen." We had a good laugh about that, and it's something I'll always remember. That, and, "Are you behaving?"
Ann, you and Carl will always have a place in my heart. I'm thinking about you, with love. My condolences to the Goulds.

So many wonderful memories of Carl trying to get Dave in trouble, his kindness after Dave's death. He loved children and had a special way with them. He also treated me with the same banter I had seen for years. I will miss him more than anyone will know. ❤
