Charles Ronald “Ron” Goodman, age 88, passed away on June 29, 2021 at Fairlawn Haven in Archbold. He was born in Rochester, New York on September 22, 1932 to Ernest Percy and Marguerite Goodman. He graduated from Bowling Green State University and completed his post graduate work at the University of Iowa, where he met his future wife, Joyce. They were married in 1956 and moved to Michigan, where they raised three children. He secured a job with Uniroyal Tire Company in information technology. When he retired in 1994, they moved to Sylvania Township, Ohio to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
Ron was a sports enthusiast and especially enjoyed rooting for the Tigers and Michigan football. He enjoyed serving in various roles within the church, anything from serving on committees to returning recyclables! But mostly he was committed to his family. Some of his children’s favorite memories include long summer car trips traveling throughout the United States, playing baseball, and marathon board game sessions. He was incredibly patient about driving his wife to every craft show in the vicinity! He always loved hearing about and seeing his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Joyce; children, Kim (Michael) Hand, Jan (Jon) Grieser and David (Jerry) Goodman; grandchildren, Sarah (Aaron) Marble, Michael (Brianna) Hand, Katie Harmon, Shannon (Phil) Keeler and Emily (Marc) Wagner; and 10 great-grandchildren and brother, Bill (Janet) Goodman.
