Ehrle Francis Goth, 85, one of eleven children, was born January 12, 1931 in Montrose, Missouri to Rufus B. and Mary Ann (Rotert) Goth. Ehrle passed away peacefully Wednesday June 29, 2016 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.

He spent his formative years in the Montrose area, until he moved to Kansas City seeking employment. For thirty years Ehrle labored on the General Motors assembly line at the Leeds plant in Kansas City, where he retired in 1985. He eagerly moved back home to Montrose. Since then he enjoyed many days hunting and fishing while able. Furthermore, Ehrle was an avid outdoorsman, who spent a great deal of time chopping wood and working in his garden. Yet the community remembers him most for the numerous amount of miles he drove around on gravel roads in the rural Montrose area, always giving a warm smile and cheerful wave to passersby. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Erhle is preceded in death by his parents, Rufus B. and Mary Ann (Rotert) Goth; and three brothers: Adrian, Ralph, and Herbert Goth; two sisters-in-law: Helen and Pat Goth; two brothers-in-law: Jerome Young and Herbert Fechtel. Survivors include three brothers: Wilfred Goth of Marcus, Iowa, Ludger Goth (Leota) of Montrose, Missouri, and Phil Goth (Betty) of Clinton, Missouri; four sisters: Rosemary Fechtel of Westphalia, Missouri, Helena Strope (Ed), of Deepwater, Missouri, Evelyn Young of Kansas City, Missouri, and Diann Richter (Mike) of Warrensburg, Missouri; and twenty-five nieces and nephews, along with all the friends who had the privilege of knowing Ehrle.
