My daughter works there. She called me in tears, absolutely heart broken. The entire Goolsby family has been very good to her. So sad for the loss.

Heartbreaking! Richard was our PA before he jumped successfully into full-time BBQ man. Great bedside manner, excellent skills. His wife taught our daughter in 1st grade & it was a wonderful year. Richard leaves large shoes to fill. Being married to a Lincolnton native & having lived there myself for 15 years, I know Lincoln County will turn out in droves to comfort this family. Godspeed, Richard ♥️”He will heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds.” ~ Psalm 147:3
A great loss for our area in so many ways. Condolences to his family, friends and staff.
We new Mr Goolsby and ate at his restaurant in Evans. We are saddened to hear about his death. He was a very nice man. Our Prayers go out to his Family and the people that worked with him!.

Lincoln County has lost a great man! Twenty five years ago, he diagnosed our son with Kawasaki Disease while all the other doctors in the practice ignored our concerns and didn’t dig deeper into researching what was going on with him. If it wasn’t for Richard, we would not have taken him to get specialized medical care which prevented further heart damage!
Richard was a special man who gave so much of himself to help our community!
My prayers are with his entire family at this time!

I loved Richard! He gave me a job when I was younger and was just a great man. This is such a tragedy and my heart goes out to his family. You are all in my prayers! You will be so missed, Richard!
Becky Taylor Widener
My heart hurts for them. He will be missed by so many. Wrapping his family in my love and prayers.
My condolences to his family. Grew up going to his dads store in Lincolnton. And as kids we would do odd jobs for his family to make some cash. Then we take the money to the store and give it right back spending it at the store. Also was a known figure on the sidelines for the Red Devil football team for years.

Love and condolences to the Goolsby Family. I feel like a beloved member of my family has passed. My late mother loved the fine southern cuisine of Goolsby’s Restaurant and the wonderful care by servers and waitresses…She visited almost every week and would chat with the owner and his lovely wife often when they were there… One day when we were there, the owner came to the table and told my Mom that she was a queen and presented my Mom with a card for her meal to be complimentary any time she dined there…My mom glowed and felt so special…RIH Mr. Goolsby.
He has been part of our lives for over 20years and he will be truly missed by our family. An extraordinary man was truly lost.

My heart hurts for his family, our community, and his friends! What an outstanding role model he was here in Lc! May god comfort his family give them the peace and understanding that only he can! Such a tragedy!
This broke my heart to hear this. I worked for Richard for many years, he was a wonderful caring man. Our work place was like a family reunion daily. Enjoy all my coworkers ( friends for life ) because Richard and his family Carol Ann, Cara, Wilkes, and Granny, made everyone feel loved. He will be truly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Met Richard at Outriggers in Applin , him and his wife bought it and we stayed there awhile, then we moved to Goolsbys. In Augusta, I was a part of the opening of this store, learned so much, also worked at his store in Lincolton, with his family. Work over 12 years for Richard, he will truly be missed, and I cherish my memories of him and his family

So very sad. I remember the first time I went there he waited on me. I wasn’t sure what I wanted and he scooped me up an extra sample at no charge. What a nice man who cared about his business and customers.
