Dennis Lane Goodman, 70, of Bedford died at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 29, 2016 at the IU Health Hospice House.
Born November 19, 1945 in Lawrence County he was the son of Rusty and Phyllis Kay (Bridwell) Goodman. He married Marilyn South in August of 1980 and she survives. He retired from General Motors Powertrain as a tool and dye maker. He was a member of the Harrodsburg Assembly of God Church, the UAW, and the Sons of the American Legion.
Denny loved his family dearly and spoiled his grandkids to no end. Never meeting a stranger he had many friends and acquaintances and some of them were very dear to him. He was always good about helping people out. He loved to hunt, particularly deer and was an avid fisherman. He loved golf, and Marilyn believes he was born with a club in his hands. Denny made every moment precious at the Hospice House, that we were blessed to share with him. He brought so much joy and laughter to every person that came to visit. He welcomed each and every one with a smile, and never tired of them.
His family was told by many that they came to lift his spirits up, but were the ones who left with their spirits lifted instead. Denny passed with much grace.
Survivors include his wife Marilyn of Bedford; five children: Hope Goodman of Texas, Heather Goodman of Texas, Tammy Bartlett of Bedford, Kelly Powell and her husband Scott of Mauckport, IN , Alan Level of Bedford; 11 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren;sisters, Dianne Anderson of Spencer, and Shona Turpin of Bloomington.
