Randy A. Goodman

Died Sept. 5, 2017


Randy Allen Goodman, 48, of Tawas City, longtime resident of Standish, passed away at his home Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017, surrounded by family.

He was born to Leonard and JoAnn (Gliniecki) Goodman on Oct. 22, 1968. Randy graduated in 1986 from Standish-Sterling Central High School. He continued his education and graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with a degree in communications. Randy was a jack of all trades. Over the years, he worked in the family business, as a radio personality, as a salesman and as a handyman.

Randy was always helping others. He was first to volunteer to coach his kids’ sports teams, help at their school or participate in charity events. He was quick to offer anyone advice, a helping hand or simply a sarcastic comment to evoke a smile. Randy loved music and played several different instruments. He was a member of a local band for many years and would often break out into song wherever he was. Randy will be remembered for his friendly personality, quick wit and infectious laugh.

Randy is survived by his wife, Melissa (nee Kendall), whom he married Sept. 24, 2016, in Tawas City at Zion Lutheran Church. Also surviving are his children, Logan, Nolan, Landi and Skylr Goodman; stepchildren, Aaron Mosciski, Cheyenne and Wyatt Martin; his father and stepmother, Leonard and Rosemarie Goodman; his mother, JoAnn Goodman; his sister, Janette Kukla; grandchildren, Elhana and Emmett Mosciski; father and mother-in-law, Dale and Bonnie Kendall; brothers-in-law, Jeremy (Emily), Andrew (Melissa) and Todd Kendall; in addition to many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends.

Randy was preceded in death by his grandparents, Enos and Dorothy Goodman, and Joseph and Gloria Gliniecki; nephew, Derek Dennett; and several aunts and uncles.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, at 11 a.m. at the Buresh Funeral Home in Tawas City. Visitation will be held Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at the funeral home.
