Moses Goodman Sr., 89, was born to Albert Goodman, a farmer, and Annie Porter, a housewife in Fayetteville, Georgia on July 17, 1932. He was immediately immersed in the work field as a young boy and never got the opportunity to attend school. Although Moses had no formal training or education, he was equipped with mother‘s wit and the ability to quickly master skills he had learned along his journey. Moses used these skills to build a very lucrative career as a contractor and even owned a gas station; he would often say “if you can dream it, I can build it!”.

He made his residence in Ohio and settled down in his Bolander Ave home. He joined Germantown pike Church of Christ and solidified his relationship with Christ through baptism. Moses’s favorite pastime was simply sitting on his front porch enjoying the company of family and friends, he also enjoyed working in his garden, doing yard work, and riding his Harley until his health declined. “Daddy” had a kind soul and would help any and everyone who crossed his path.

His most notable phrase was “great big ole deal” whenever he was excited about something. He was a true comedian at heart, always finding humor, sometimes even at awkward moments. It’s only fitting that he chose to make his departure during a snowstorm so he could bust one last donut in the snow. He never passed up the opportunity to answer questions, tell stories, or help solve a problem, no matter how big or small. He will be dearly missed by his loved ones and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Moses is preceded in death by his father, Albert Goodman, his mother Annie Porter, his daughter, Sylvia Ray, and his great-grandson, Jonathan Pierce Jean-Louis.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his sons, Moses Goodman Jr (Brenda), Jermaine Ross(JJ), his grandchildren, Billy Goodman, Kimberly Goodman, Shawanda Goodman, Carmen Camp, Monica Camp(Milton), Katie Young, Serenity Goodman, Maliya Goodman, Moses Goodman lll, Monae Goodman, special grandson Michael M’cDaniel, special great-grandsons Robert Mills lll, Darion Barnett, his special friends Charles R. Kenny, Marcella, Charles C, the Harris family, G-unit family, Maurice, Deb, and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and friends.
