"The City of Winnfield mourns the loss of previous Mayor Ronald "Cloud" Goff. I’d say there’s nobody in town who has not been impacted by him. Mr. Goff was one of the most outgoing people we’ve had the privilege to know. 'He told the best stories, and always had time for a joke and a laugh. He was the pillar and heart of his family, always willing to help when needed, he will be truly missed.' Current Mayor George Moss has ordered all flags on city buildings to remain at half-staff through Goff's home-going."
