Chris Goen was my former student, teaching peer, and friend. From the first day he walked in my classroom at Weatherford College, I knew he would change lives someday. I followed his career with interest after his college graduation and eventually worked with him on several cooperative projects when he started teaching at Millsap ISD. His love of teaching and genuine interest in the success of his students was evident in everything he did. He was modest, humorous, supportive, and a man of great character. Even though Chris left us too soon, we are all better for him being a part of our lives. I will always remember Chris Goen. My condolences and prayers to the family.

I did not go to school here, however, all 3 of my children did. I met Mr. Goen when I found out that he helped the kids sell the plants that they had grown in school. He trusted me to keep a plant or two that he wanted for when he returned to class after being at home for awhile. I have met anyone as courteous or as nice as he and my kids truly liked him. My thoughts and prayers are for his entire family.

I'm saddened to hear my good friend has passed. Chris helped me teach values to my kids as they grew up. He was always willing to come by and help with their ag projects or any thing I needed help with. A very unselfish friend that I'll always have the best memories of. I'm going to miss you!

Many prayers for family and friends! Chris was sure. “One of a Kind” and that’s what made him “Chris Goen”!

High School AG at Millsap was my favorite class thanks to Mr. Goen. He sure did teach me a lot of valuable lessons, always made class fun, and lots of great memories in the shop. Thank you Mr. Goen for all the wisdom you have passed on, and make you rest in peace.
