By Rick Badie Gary Goosman knew he was adopted from a Midwest orphanage, but it was only 13 years ago that the Roswell resident, then a married father of three, tried to locate his birth family. He had his birth certificate, his birth parents' names and copies of state records about his open adoption. The retired business executive was able to locate a sister, Janis Watson of Wichita, Kan., who had been trying to find him, too. Her discovery led to two other siblings he'd never known. "He is the spitting image of my dad and they say he and I look alike," Mrs. Watson said. "We all feel like we have known each other for life. We put a lot into these 13 years, but it was too short, of course." On Saturday, Gary Wayne Goosman died from complications of prostate cancer at his home. He was 69. A memorial service will be at 10:55 a.m. Saturday at Church of the Savior in Our policy: The AJC strives to publish a complete record of deaths in the metro area and of selected deaths elsewhere.

Roswell resident Gary Goosman was a retired business executive who also built birdhouses. Roswell. Byars Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Cumming is in charge of arrangements. Mr. Goosman was born to teenage parents in Wichita. His adoptive parents never hid how he'd become part of their family, said Darlene Goosman, his wife of 48 years. "I have a wonderful scrapbook that his mother kept everything in," she said. "He certainly felt blessed to have his family, and I think that is one reason it took him so long to try to find his birth parents." In 1972, Mr. Goosman earned a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Arkansas. He went to work for Cabot Corp., where he spent more than 30 years. In 1978, the family moved to Atlanta after stops in Franklin, La., and Pam-pa, Texas. They settled in north Fulton, where the family attended Roswell United Methodist Church.

Before his death, he rode his Harley with Eric, a military son stationed in Bi-loxi, Miss., at the time. Mr. Goosman considered himself fortunate to have had three children who grew up to be responsible adults. When it came to his birth family, though, gaps existed. At 56, he wanted answers. In 1991, Mrs. Watson's father was terminally ill when he told her she had a brother. "I thought I could put it together fairly quickly, but I had the wrong birthday," Mrs. Watson said. " Gary put it together in about three days, but the Internet helped him tremendously." Aside from Mrs. Watson, Mr. Goosman had another sister and brother -- Penny McNulty of Nashville, Ark., and Bob Ko-hout, a Texas man who died earlier this year. Ironically, all of this came to light 13 years ago on April 17, the same date Mr. Goosman passed.
