Tommy Will Goodman, age 78, of Mangum, passed away late Tuesday evening at Mangum Community Hospital.

Tommy was born on October 13, 1930, at Reed, Oklahoma to Adolphus and Viola (Bogart) Goodman. Moving to Vinson as a teenager, the family later moved to Mangum where he graduated from high school in 1950. On August 12, 1950, he married Ethel White, the love of his life, and they spent the next fifty-eight wonderful years together. Working as grocery store butcher for a short time, Tommy later spent thirty-one years as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service in Mangum. After his retirement, Tommy faithfully visited the hospital and nursing home on a near daily routine. A Godly man, Tommy faithfully served the Mangum Church of Christ as a deacon, and later an elder for many years. In his spare time, he worked with the Greer County Election Board and was known to drink coffee with many of his friends in the local restaurants, but his favorite pastime was keeping his grandchildren and caring for his friends and family.

Preceded in death by his parents, one sister, Mary Louise Fletcher and one daughter, Mary Alice Pitts, he is survived by his loving wife, Ethel, of the home; two children, Tommy Stephen Goodman and wife Lynette of Sayre and Carrie Louise Statler and husband Bobby of Tulsa; one son-in-law, Brett Pitts of Mangum; one brother-in-law, Ernest Fletcher of Amarillo; two brothers, Ed Goodman and wife Nancy of Vernon, Texas and Jerry Goodman and wife Donna of Tulsa; five grandchildren, Cassey Clayman and husband Michael of Hereford, Texas, Autumn Norwood and husband Philip of Stillwater, Jenny MacDonald and husband Dustin of Stillwater, Rowdy Pitts and Kylie Pitts of Mangum; one great grandson, Wyatt Clayman of Hereford, Texas along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and a host of friends.

Funeral services for Tommy Goodman will be at 10 a.m., Friday, May 29, 2009, at the Church of Christ with Todd McRay and Eddie Beard officiating. Interment will follow at Riverside Cemetery under the direction of Greer Funeral Home of Mangum.
