Please accept my condolences for the loss of your farther. I remember that your dad could always be counted on to be at the game rooting for you and the Lake Highlands team, win or lose, when you were on the high school baseball team. Although I didn’t know him except for me being another parent in the stands, he showed the traits of being a good father and family man and I am sure you and the rest of his family will miss him.

Kerry, I remember those summers playing American Legion baseball. One memory that really stands out is the collection of our fathers in the stands. Mr. Ford, Mr. Jarma, Mr. Lennox, my dad, and your dad. That was a pretty good group of great men. I will keep you and your family close to my heart and know Mr. Goad is now with some of those baseball dads telling stories of the old days!

I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Goad. When I met him I was in high school. He was friendly, full of energy and fun to be around. That is how I will always remember Mr. Goad.
