"Mr. Goode" is a long time family friend, 60+ years. He got me a summer job. He helped my family move to a new house. He went snowmobiling with us. He broke my minibike when he fell off while popping a wheelie. He wore sneakers when he went swimming in the lake. He could tap a keg the old-fashioned way. He sold me and my friend Fireballs (the jaw breaker) by the case when we rode our bikes to his house. He would stay up late playing "in-between" at the camp. He would toss me into the water when we were swimming. He lent me his pickup truck. He was funny, friendly, opinionated, generous, kind-hearted, "strong like bull", and a whole bunch of other things too numerous to mention them all. I will truly miss him.

Dick Goode was such a wonderful guy. He would always look out for others. The Goode family is so important to me and Dick was one of the reasons. My prayers and thoughts go out to the family. He was certainly the "Real Deal" Tom Muench
