James Albert Goeske July 3, 1941 - February 9, 2024 James Goeske, a beloved husband, dedicated public servant, and adventurous spirit, passed away on February 9, 2024, at the age of 82. Born on July 3, 1941, in Riverside, California, to Janet and John Goeske, James was a man of boundless energy and enthusiasm from a young age. He attended Poly High School in Riverside, where he not only excelled academically but also displayed his athletic prowess on the football field. James continued his education at Riverside University, where his passion for sports remained undiminished. James's commitment to serving his community led him to a career in law enforcement, where he served with honor and distinction as a policeman in Palm Springs, California. Even while dedicating himself to public service, James was an entrepreneur at heart. He owned a gas station and ventured into real estate, buying and selling numerous properties in Palm Springs. In 1976, James found his lifelong partner in Casey, and together they embarked on a journey filled with love and adventure. Casey's entrepreneurial spirit matched James's own, as they both opened Code 7, businesses that brought joy and community to those they served. For two decades, James served as a motorcycle officer, patrolling the streets with dedication and integrity. His commitment to keeping his community safe was unwavering, and he earned the respect and admiration of all who knew him. In 2002, James and Casey decided to embark on a new chapter of their lives, selling their business in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. They embraced their newfound freedom with gusto, indulging in their shared love of travel. James's adventurous spirit took them across Canada and the United States on his beloved motorcycle, creating memories along the way. Their journey eventually led them to settle in a condo on the beach in Daytona, Florida, where they continued to savor life's adventures together. James lived life to the fullest, cherishing every moment and embracing the beauty of the world around him. Though he may have "run out of time," his spirit will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.
