Mr. Goss was born Dec. 31, 1923, to M.J. Goss III and Ada Frances Colt Goss in La Grande. He graduated from La Grande High School in 1941 and then from the University of Oregon. He served in the Army during World War II, and on Sept. 7, 1948, he married Donna Knight in La Grande.

He owned and ran the family business, M.J. Goss Motor Co., and worked until the day he died. He loved his work. In his younger years he enjoyed hunting chuker and pheasant. He enjoyed spending time at the family cabin in Richland, traveling, especially to Baja California, Mexico, and the Oregon Coast, and being with his family. He collected model cars, and was well known for his one-liners. He was a life member of the La Grande Elks Lodge.
