Michael “Mike” Lynn Goodman, 65, of Mooresville, N.C., passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 17, 2022, at home.

He was born September 29, 1956, in Mooresville, son of Vance and Hazel Goodman. Mike served in the United States Coast Guard, which grew his love for history. He worked at Cummings as a Diesel Mechanic and later at Freightliner, from where he retired as a Materials Handler Supervisor. Mike was a hardworking man who enjoyed listening to his radio on the porch and leisure driving on the back roads. He was a simple man. Mike enjoyed deer and bear hunting when time allowed while raising his seven children. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Vance; and sons, Michael Jr. and Stephen.

Mike leaves behind his wife of 44 years, Kathleen; children, Jennifer, Thomas, Christine, Andrew, and Matthew; six grandchildren; mother Hazel; and brother Randy; along with their spouses and families.
