Printing was his life – even before flexography.” So wrote Shirley Goodman (Goody ’s loving wife of 63 years) as she informed me of his passing on Dec. 24th. Retired from Maryland Cup Corp. back in 1983, where he spent virtually his entire working career, Goody was a founding member of the FTA, a member of the Board of Directors—serving one of the longest periods of any Director—and was active in the workshop and other training programs of the FTA, resulting in his 1983 induction into FTA’s Hall of Fame. Following are some heartfelt comments from his fellow Hall of Fame members that express the essence of Goody ’s being: Joe Trungale (‘85) He was a true pioneer in this wonderful world of flexography and he made countless contributions to many new members at the meetings he attended. I recall watching him at a meeting where he sat with several young men explaining the virtues of making sure all of the details are attended to when running a press. Sam Gilbert (‘89) Goody will surely be missed. The many comments from all of the Hall of Fame members show how much we all liked and appreciated him. His friendship and continued involvement in FTA is what I looked forward to when attending Forums. Jerry Shields (‘90) Goody was truly one of the great guys. He was one of the first people I met when I joined FTA. After that, he was always there to lend a hand when I, or any one of a hundred others, needed help. I’ll always remember how “up” Goody always was. I’m not sure he ever had a “down” day. Mark Andrews (‘92) Goody was a wide web guy and what a gentleman! When we nar- row web guys showed up at FTA, many of the wide web guys wondered what we were doing there. From the very first encounter, Goody was there with open arms to see how we could be helped. I ’m sure his plate was full with many things to do, which makes his friendship and concern even more remarkable and appreciated. George Parisi (‘93) Goody taught without acting as a teacher and was always one to point out the good points of an individual. It should be remembered that Goody began his training as a young man going to a trade school in Baltimore. I was indeed pleased to learn that he considered me one of his friends. FTA has been extremely fortunate during the years in obtaining a group of people who are not only members, but later be- came leaders. I can assure you that if any list is prepared of people who made FTA what it really is, the name of Goody Goodman would stand out as one of our true leaders. We will truly miss him. Tony Bart (‘96) Goody was certainly one of the great pioneers of our industry and I am happy to have had the opportunity to have known and befriended him. As with all those pioneers, Goody was a mentor to me and so many others. It has not gone unappreci- ated. He most certainly belonged in the Hall of Fame. He will be fondly remembered by many of us. Ron Harper (‘98) As a young salesman in about 1962, Goody Goodman was one of the first really substantial customers that I visited with. Within the first five minutes Goody had me feeling like an old friend. I loved this guy for his warmth, friendliness and his natural tendency to make his friends feel important and special. Bruce Riddell (‘06) This is a loss for the industry and his many friends. Thank you Goody...for your leadership, your energy, your compassion, your friendship and your ever-present smile!
