Jon MIchael Goostree

My heart an soul aches knowing that he was such a wonderful guy who would help anyone he could. Been home since January an would bend over backwards to help a friend in need. He loved to go fishing and being with friends and family, and loved to be out doors and on a bike. He taught my son how to ride a bike and potty trained him.  Jon was my world, we had fights but who didn’t,  I just cant imagine that he is gone, breaks my heart. My son will never have his uncle goose again ,  Jon has taught him so much.
