Joshua Shane Goodman, 32, a talented and charismatic man with his life ahead of him, was taken too soon on Friday, February 24, 2023.
Josh is survived by his parents, Joseph and Joanne Goodman; sisters Janey Wellons (Justin) and Julia Goode (Elijah); grandmother Diane Wallace; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Josh was a loving father to his son, Levi.
Josh towered over many as he stood 6’7”. You only had to look up to see his beautiful blue eyes and sheepish grin. He had a very good and forgiving heart. Josh was a trusting young man that never judged other people. He was a very talented and creative individual who loved drawing and tattooing. He was a gifted welder. As a teen, he loved skateboarding, dirt bike riding, and racing with his Dad. The higher the jump, the better the challenge.
Josh truly loved his family and his passing has left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled.
The family will receive friends at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 5 at Affinity Funeral Service 2720 Enterprise Parkway, Richmond, VA 23294. A service will follow at 3 p.m.
