Brian Joseph Goede, a Public Safety Dispatcher for St. Louis County Police and life-long resident of St. Louis, Missouri, died peacefully on June 4, 2018, at the age of 46 following a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

Brian is survived by his parents; his ex-wife and friend, Robin Bales-Goede; his sister, Jennifer Nowlin (nee Goede); his son, Nicholas Siegers; and his police family.

Brian was born in St. Louis, Missouri on November 18, 1971, to Vernon E. and Margaret E. Goede (nee Gerber). He attended Central Visual Arts High School and graduated in 1990. Though divorced, Brian and his ex-wife remained close and formed a domestic partnership in 2017.

Brian was a devoted police dispatcher who valued his officers’ safety. He was always the first one to help other’s in need both personally and professionally. Brian was someone others could count on in their time of need. He gave the department 18 years of his life and made an impression on everyone he met. He enjoyed traveling, listening to music, and spending time with his beloved dogs. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, police family, and all who knew him.

Brian will be cremated, and a private memorial service is planned. His ashes will be scattered at a future time in the Caribbean Sea, where he enjoyed vacationing. The family is grateful for the condolences, in lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to:

    Still hard to believe you are not here anymore!! We have been friends for 30 years. From the explorers in Affton to riding backwards together on the fire department to our notorious last minute late night fishing trips on the meramec river. We had a lot of great times and a few not so great but after all the shot we have been through we still remained brothers!! Love you and miss you brother RIP
