Goul; his brothers, Michael (Deborah) Goul of Pensacola, FL and Dan (Jolinda) Goul of Westminister, CO; and his sister, Kay (Thomas) Sones of Diamondhead; his children, Brian (Debbie) Goul of Louisville, KY, Supannee "Min" Najera (Heriberto) of Bradenton, FL, Allen (Jaimie) Goul of Portage, IN, Lynn Spears of Pace, FL; and stepchildren, Rodney (Kwan) Cuevas of Thailand, Marcy (David) Paul of Goldsboro, NC, Angela (Jay) Pal of Seattle, WA, and Randy (Karri) Cuevas of Wiggins; 15 grandchildren; and 3 great grandchildren; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
