Loren "Pete" Goodman Obituary

Loren W. "Pete" Goodman, 71, of Jackson, Missouri, passed away Tuesday, January 2, 2024, at his home.

He was born January 7, 1952, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Paul O. and Claudia A. Goodwin Goodman.

Pete's family moved to Kinston, North Carolina, where he eventually met the love of his life, Marta Dailey. They married July 27, 1973, in Greenville, North Carolina. They had been married 38 years when Marta passed away September 14, 2011.

Pete and Marta first lived in Rocky Mount, NC, followed by Forest City, North Carolina, then Cookeville, Tennessee, and finally settled in Jackson, Missouri, in 2002.

Pete was employed many years as the plant manager of the Brown Shoe Company Distribution Center in Sikeston, Missouri. He was an avid fisherman and especially enjoyed bass fishing. He also was a big fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and North Carolina Tar Heels.

His greatest joy was being a great family man, who was a dedicated and caring husband, father, and "PopPop" to his grandchildren. Pete had a gift for meeting others and making them feel at ease, like they may have known each other forever.

Loving survivors include six children: Marie (Jason) Graves and children, Victoria, Garrett, and Claudia of Chattanooga, Tennessee; Andrew (Bethany) Goodman and children, Mae, Betsy, Jane and Rosemary of Lebanon, Tennessee; Bradley (Racheal) Goodman of Mount Juliet, Tennessee; Ryan Goodman of Jackson, Missouri; Michael (Leah) Goodman of Cape Girardeau, Missouri; and Kevin (Jennifer) Goodman of Cape Girardeau; a sister, Cathy (Barry) Blackburn; two brothers, Alan (Marti) Goodman and Dave (Bette) Goodman; a sister-in-law, Marie Dailey and her husband Pat Dane; and several nieces and nephews.

Pete was preceded in death by his wife, Marta; an infant daughter, Meagan Goodman; an infant, grandson, Zachary Graves; his parents, Paul and Claudia Goodman; a sister, Paula Goodman; Marta's parents, Mark and Elizabeth Dailey; and her brother, John Dailey.

A memorial visitation will be held from 1 to 3 p.m., Sunday, January 14, 2024, at McCombs Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Jackson.
