George Gomoll 10/14/2023

George William Gomoll, 79, was taken home to heaven on October 14, 2023, after a long journey through cancer. He went peacefully with his wife Judy Gomoll by his side. He is also survived by his siblings Roy (Noann) Gomoll and Tina (Ouma) Gomoll, a niece and nephew, several god-children, and many beloved friends in America and East Africa.

George was raised near Ripon, WI, with dreams of farming, saved many soldiers’ lives as a helicopter pilot/officer in Vietnam, graduated from UWRF in 1975, served farmers through Production Credit Association, and worked as a TSA officer in Denver since 2002.

But his greatest passion was sharing the love of Jesus with people. His life verse and calling from God came from Isaiah 43:4—“Since you are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.” He and Judy served as pioneer missionaries with The Navigators ministry in Uganda and Kenya from 1986—2001. George will be missed by his family and many friends both in the US and Africa.

A memorial service was on Saturday, November 4 at 2:00 pm, at the First Covenant Church, 1354 N Main Street in River Falls, WI (visitation at 1:00, service at 2:00, and reception following at the church). The service was live-streamed at: .

As George requested, Judy will take his remains to Uganda for burial in 2024. No flowers, please. Memorial offerings will go toward the trip to Uganda.

    My mother died from cancer 50 years ago when she was 52. Two things said at her funeral. Life is like a book with filled out pages and and blank pages. The pastor urged us to thank God for the completed pages, the years we had with her and not fret over the empty pages, the years we didn’t have her. Lastly he read Romans 8:18. I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us. This verse has given me much comfort and assurance since her transport to Heaven.

    Judy, my condolences to you. I worked many years ago at PCA with George, who was always such a kind, caring person. My thoughts are with you.
