Todd D. Goheen, age 60, of Oshkosh, WI, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 8, 2021.

Todd D. Goheen

Todd was born in Carrington, ND on May 5, 1961, the son of Jerrold Goheen. He grew up on a farm in Carrington, looking up to and admiring his dad until he passed away when Todd was 16. His love of the farm life and everything that came with it stayed with him until his last days. Todd graduated from Carrington High School, and in 1981 he married his high school sweetheart, Tamera Sharbono. After high school he became an auctioneer, starting Goheen Auction Service. Todd went on to further his education at the Dallas Institute of Funeral Service, and moved to Ripon, WI where he began working at Butzin-Marchant Funeral Home. He has owned the funeral home and served the Ripon area families for over 25 years. Todd has been very involved with the Ripon community in many ways, as he was in his earlier years in the Carrington community. The most important part of his life, however, was his family and God. He was a private man and had a strong, inner peace with The Lord. His grandchildren meant the world to him, and everyday he loved to tell stories or share pictures of them, and cherished every minute he spent with them. Todd will be remembered for being a loyal, honest, hard working and selfless man, always putting others before himself. He will be dearly missed.

Todd is survived by his wife, Tamera Goheen of Oshkosh, WI; two daughters, Rolanda (Christopher) Bjornstad of Ripon, WI and Davanna (Maurice) Butler of Oshkosh, WI; and his four grandchildren, Davian, Kylin, Rayel, and Dezi Butler of Oshkosh, WI. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother.

A private family graveside service for Todd will be held at Woodlawn Cemetery in Ripon, WI, with Rev. Bryan Fritsch officiating. Memorials in his name may be directed to Compassion International (, Colorado Springs, CO, 80997, or OneChild, P.O. Box 62600, Colorado Springs, CO 80962, to help children in need.

A celebration of Todd's life for his friends and family will be held on Friday, June 18, 2021, from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm at "Papa's Land" 6654 Mountain Rd, Pickett, WI 54964.

1 Chronicles 29:17

“I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things I have given willingly and with honest intent...” This is how Todd lived his life.
