September 6, 1949 - August 19, 2022

John Larry Goswick, 72, of Conway died Friday, August 19, 2022. He was born September 6, 1949 to the late John Henry Goswick and the late Evelyn Marie Vestal Goswick Sloan. He is preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Barbara Ann Grimes Goswick.

He is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Alexander and husband Tim; son, Matt Goswick and wife Gina; son, Rob Goswick; grandchildren, Sadie Alexander, Madelyn Alexander, Layla Alexander, Sebastian Alexander, Benjamin Alexander and Kenzie Goswick and sister, Kris Grubaugh.

Mr. Goswick was of the Baptist faith and a member of Central Baptist Church in Conway. For 40 years he served as a worship leader in various churches alongside his wife, Barbara, who served as pianist.

After spending his career in education, John retired as the Director of Instructional Technology at the Pulaski County Special School District. In retirement, he pursued his second master's degree so that he could continue to serve his community in the field of Emergency Management. He worked with both the Arkansas Division of Emergency Management and the Arkansas State Police. John especially loved working with the ASP. Their tactical operations group considered him one of their own as he brought them a whole new world of back up communications. Teaching and mentoring troops was a special love of his and he will be missed by everyone who knew him in the radio community and the ASP tactical operations crew. John's call sign was W5JLG.

A memorial service will be held at Roller-McNutt Funeral Home in Conway on Wednesday August 24, 2022 at 1pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to Central Baptist College or Central Baptist Church in Conway.
