Jacob Goodman

1929 – 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jacob Goodman on Monday, January 26, 2015 in Cranbrook, BC.

Jake was born on May 30, 1929 in Champion, AB to Jacob and Pauline Goodman. He was the youngest of five children. Our dad was a member of the East Kootenay Shrine Club #4 in Cranbrook and was very proud of his affiliation. Dad loved to play golf and after his retirement from Goodman Diesel he learned to fly ultra light planes.

Jake was predeceased by his parents, three brothers and one sister: William, Ronald, Elizabeth and Samuel. He is survived by his children Donna-Leigh, Lori (Paul), Doug, Richard and Anniel (John); four grandchildren Kirstie, Farran, Kevin and Michael; and his partner Dawn.

A special thank you to the staff at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, especially Dr. Shilhan, who were so kind to our dad and our family during this difficult time.

Dad left this world on his own terms and can now finally breathe with ease.

As per Jake’s wishes, there will be no memorial service.
