        Funeral services for Fred Moeling Goos, 72, who died at 6:30 this afternoon in the home of J. Albert Bel, a grand-nephew, at 703 Pujo St. The Rev. George F. Wharton of the Church of the Good Shepherd will conduct the services, followed by a Masonic ceremony at the graveside.
        Burial will be in the family cemetery in Goosport, with Burke and Trotti in charge.
        Pallbearers will be Bell Ewing, Jim Pearce, W. W. Severs, Albert Goos, H. Krause, Dan Currens, R. E. Krause, and Albert Bel.
        Mr. Goos, one of the last members of the oldest and largest families in this section, died in the Bel residence following a stroke he suffered Friday. He was born in Lake Charles, August 20, 1864, and at his death was the same age as his sister, the late Mrs. J. A. (Della M. Goos) Bel, who died May 7, 1934.
        Mr. Goos was the son of the late Capt. Daniel Goos and Katherine Moeling Goos, who founded Goosport. Capt. Goos was a prominent schooner operator and lumberman in the days when Lake Charles was a bustling young lumber town, and the Calcasieu river was busy with the lumber traffic.
        During his active life, Fred M. Goos farmed successfully for a long period and later entered the J. A. Bel Lumber company, residing with his sister, the late Mrs. J. A. Bel after the death of her husband. Following her death, he lived with his grand-nephew, J. Albert Bel.
        Mr. Goos was a member of the Episcopal church of the Good Shepherd and was a 32nd. degree Mason. For a number of years he was president of the Masonic lodge at Gillis.
        Mr. Goos was one of the last surviving brothers in a large family. He is survived by Walter Goos, Calcasieu police juror of Ward 3.
        Sisters who have preceded him in death are Mrs. Babette Fitzenreiter, Mrs. J. A. Bel, Mrs. Nellie Lock, Mrs. Rosalie Wachsen, Mrs. Medora Jessen, Mrs. Frederica Perkins, Mrs. Katherine Flanders, Mrs. Marie Williams, Mrs. Emma Richards, and Mrs. Georgie Timmins.
        Three brothers who have died are Albert, Dan, and Christian Goos. Many nieces and nephews survive.
