Christopher Lee "Chris" Goodman, passed away on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020 as a result of injuries he sustained in an automobile accident.
Born Aug. 23, 1971 in St. Louis, Mo., he was the son of Alfred Lee and Linda Kay Goodman.
Mr. Goodman was a 1989 graduate of Valmeyer H.S. in Valmeyer, Illinois. He worked at Chrysler in Kokomo, spending 10 years on the transmission line before retiring from the production facility. While working at the plant he joined the UAW Local 685 in Kokomo. For the past eight years he drove a dedicated Hamilton County delivery route for the Indianapolis Star, serving Noblesville and the surrounding areas.
He had a real love for sports, both as a participant and a fan. He never missed a chance to go bowling, and when the weather cooperated, the golf course was always in his sights. He kept close tabs on his St. Louis Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts, standing behind them even during the lean years. Peyton Manning was his favorite player. He was also a loyal Boilermaker fan.
Family and faith were very important parts of his life. He was a member of the Issachar Church in Sheridan.
Survivors include his parents, Alfred Lee and Linda Kay Goodman of Kokomo; former wife, Heather Goodman Dougherty of Lake Station, Ind.; sons, Griffin Goodman of Lafayette and Casmir Goodman of Lake Station; daughters, Zöe Goodman of Lafayette and Gwen Goodman of Lake Station; siblings, Casey Goodman of Kokomo and Sara (David) Kropczynski of Kokomo; nieces and nephews; Treavor Harris, Elija Harris, Jraycen Goodman, Alex Kropczynski, Ashlen Kropczynski and Addison Kropczynski; and his pet cat, Jacki.
He was preceded in death by both his paternal and maternal grandparents.
