Passing of Former SCCEMS Board Chairman Joseph D. Goss
By EMS Chief Bob Hotchkiss
June 7, 2018

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Joseph D. Goss. Joe passed away yesterday afternoon at Union Hospital after a long illness. Joe served as the Chairman of the SCCEMS Board of Directors from 1987-1990. Joe was a great supporter of SCCEMS and MEDIC 94 and was instrumental in the development of the organization in its early years as we grew from Southern Chester County Advanced Life Support to Southern Chester County EMS. It was a time for the organization where we expanded our scope of services to meet new community needs beyond the MEDIC 94 services. He was also a life member of the Union of Oxford Fire Company where he served as President.

A memorial service will be held 11 am Saturday, June 9, at the Edward L. Collins, Jr. Funeral Home, Inc., 86 Pine St., Oxford, where family and friends may visit from 9 – 11 am.

Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to Union Fire Co., #1, 315 Market St., Oxford, PA 19363.
