One of the great sports enjoyed back in the “good old days” was the sport of fishing. Here are a group of friends from the community of Goshen in 1940 posing for fellow fisherman and picture-taker Joe Gervasi. Left to right: Dave Briggs, Tom Meechan, Jim Warner, Bill Terazzi and Adrian “Ade” Rausch.
Paul and Mary Mehok moved to Goshen on May 21, 1954, after purchasing the property which was formerly the Pissocra’s Store. They settled here to be closer to Paul’s work at Warner and Swasey’s. Mary said they didn’t want to live in town. The couple had three daughters, Sharon, Paula and Amy. Paula and her husband Mark Putnam also reside on Goshen Valley Rd. in the house once owned by Carlo and Virginia Terazzi. Amy also lives on Goshen Vly. Rd. near Mary. Sharon (Freed) recently passed away after suffering with many health issues. She and her husband Bill (also deceased) have a son, Andy. Paul died on April 12, 1992 after a long battle with cancer. Mary later married Norman Stover, also of Goshen on May 22, 1994. He is now deceased.
