Floyd's Story

Text size

Floyd E. Goodman Jr., 68, of Loogootee, Indiana passed away on July 7, 2018 in his home after a battle with cancer. He was born to Floyd E Goodman Sr. and Lorraine Carter on January 25, 1950. Floyd graduated from Effingham High School in 1968. He relocated to Martin County, IN upon his military retirement in 1989.

Floyd strived to epitomize the phrase "For God, My Country, and My Family" during his daily life. He placed his faith in Jesus Christ at age 15 and remained faithful throughout the remainder of his life. As a part of this commitment, he served the Lord as a Treasurer and Deacon for his church for many years. To honor his country, Floyd served in the United States Air Force, earning two commendation medals before retiring after twenty years of dedication as a ground radar and airfield specialist. Lastly, he remained true to his love and the vows of marriage to his high school sweetheart, Brenda K. (Cummings) Goodman, for forty-eight years until his death.

In addition to fulfilling each of these commitments, Floyd spent a great deal of time making those around him laugh with his playful sense of humor and slightly sarcastic nature. He also loved sharing the Word of God with others at every opportunity. With the remainder of his free time, he could be found "junking", debating politics, watching Fox News, hiding money from his wife, and spending time with his friends and family.

Floyd is survived by his wife, Brenda, of Loogootee. He is also survived by his daughter, Kathy (Rich) Baker of Effingham, IL, and sons, Charles (Tasha) and Steve (Cristina) Goodman, of McKinney, TX. Surviving grandchildren are Ashley White (Brandon Balcer), Kolbee Baker, Sierra Blankenship, Emma Goodman, and Brendan Goodman. Surviving great-grandchildren are Aubriana White and Kylan Balcer. Other surviving family members include sisters Tana (Terry) Hazlett, Betty Johnson and brothers, Michael (Tina) Goodman, Terry Goodman, and Cliff (Kari) Goodman, as well as many aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd E. Goodman Sr. and Lorraine Wilkerson.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 from 5:00 P.M until the time of service.
