According to the Buffalo News, Trunnis Goggins, longtime owner of Skateland, who closed every skating session by saying, “Yes baby, it’s time to go home,” died Tuesday in Buffalo General Medical Center after a long illness. He was 79.

“That’s what he always would say, and now that is what he did. He went home,” said daughter Marina White. “He was a character.”
