I've known John as a fellow friend of Bill's. John was a kind and gentle person with a smile and friendly hello each time I saw him. He will surely be missed. My condolences to his family.

My family has been staying at John & Meredith’s home in Truro for the past few summers, and we have always enjoyed seeing and chatting with John, on changeover day.
Our dearest condolences to his family & friends.

Our sincerest, heartfelt condolences and love to Meri, Angelica, Lia and Cosmos on the loss of the love of their lives, Beau - a cherished and loving husband, inspiring Dad and compassionate dog owner. Beau was a remarkable man and welcoming friend to those fortunate enough to have spent any amount of time with him. Years ago I lived in NYC and my Mom and Aunt came for a visit. Beau was the daily Chauffeur and he offered them their first grand tour of New York City treating them to historical facts, sights, sounds and lunch as he drove through lower Manhattan at full tilt exploring the shortcuts of the city grid. Beau as usual was resourceful, charming, respectful, fun and funny on that day and for the many years beyond as my husband and I shared a lasting friendship with Beau, Meri and "the girls." My Mom called it all those years ago when their tour had ended and Beau hugged her and my Aunt goodbye wishing them well. She took me aside and quietly advised me to "start looking for a Beau for a husband." "You want a man like Meri has, one with integrity who is kind to people of all ages and above all someone who is fun to be with -choose wisely and choose a Beau...he is keeper!" That he was and my husband Tom and I will forever keep our dear friend Beau close to our hearts. One day when we meet again we will expect a grand tour of life beyond and I know Beau will not disappoint us. Love, Tom, Jane, Pat, Anne and Tim

I cherish so many precious memories of the Goff family! John loved "his girls" and their accomplishments beyond words. He was a gentleman with great integrity, compassion, and funny sense of humor. He loved to garden, cook and sail. My heartfelt condolences to Meredith, Angelia, Lia, and Cosmo. RIP, Beau!

My thoughts and prayers are with the Goff family. I will remember John fondly from chatting with him when he walked Cosmo or when I was mowing lawns and he was working hard on his yard we’d chat. He was a wonderful man with a heart of gold. I will miss you John😇
