Dan Goodman

Dan Goodman, formerly of Pierceton, Ind. passed away at 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2019, at Majestic Care West-Allen, Fort Wayne, Ind., at the age of 98.

He was born on Oct. 16, 1921, in Garrett, to Elizabeth (Mosley) Goodman and Warren Goodman.  

On Jan. 29, 1940, he was married at the age of 18 to his lovely bride, Hazel (Collins) Goodman.  They shared 59 years of marriage together before she passed away at the age of 75 on Nov. 1, 1999.

Dan served in the U.S. Army during World War II until his honorable discharge.  He worked as a self-employed painter for the majority of his life and was always very proud of his work.  He was an avid hunter and one of his favorite things to do was he loved to show his coon dog in dog shows. Dan even made the cover of American Coon Hunter magazine.

He attributed his long life of 98 years to his love of exercising. Dan was a former member of Victory Christian Center in Warsaw, Ind., member of the American Legion Post #49 of Warsaw, and most of all, he loved his family. He will be dearly missed.

He will be lovingly remembered by his three daughters: Mara Helblig of Claypool, Ind., Virginia Morris of Warsaw, Ind. and Molly (Don) Gilbert of North Manchester, Ind.; four sons: Daniel (Diana) Goodman, Jr. of Penn. and Chester (Janet) Goodman, Phillip Goodman and Warren Goodman, all of Pierceton, Ind.  Also surviving are his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.  

He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Hazel Goodman.
