Jan. 3, 1943 – Oct. 31, 2019
Marshall Terrill Goode, 76, of Mechanicsville, Virginia passed at home with his two favorite people at his side on October 31, 2019.
Terrill is survived by his daughter, Terri (Danny) G. Byrne, son Marshall (Angelique) Terrill Goode Jr., brother Robert (Judy) Sherrill Goode, grandchildren; Leah, Savannah, Rachel Byrne, Megan, Mariah, Gavyn, and Gabrian Goode.
Terrill was born in Watson, Alabama January 3, 1943, to Margaret G. Wiygul and Marshall Goode. He attended Minor High School, graduating in 1961; served in the Army National Guard, and worked for South Central Bell /Bellsouth for 36 years until retiring in 2000.
Terrill was the complete fan of all things related to the University of Alabama, especially football and basketball. In his younger and early adult years, he played and refereed basketball. As his children grew, his interests changed to baseball and softball, where he coached girls softball for many years. Terrill also had a real love for flea markets, auctions, antiques, and refinishing furniture. As the years passed, he spent much of his time watching movies and later just spending time with his grandchildren. He loved working in the yard, especially gardening and planting trees with his granddaughters.
With all his interests, Terrill Goode was first, a father. He loved and lived for his two children.
A special thank you to Teri, Leshell, and Ashley from Hospice of Virginia and his favorite doctor, Jeremy Scheinkin, MD.
A memorial service is planned for January 4, 2020 at Pinson Community Center, 6230 Dry Creek Lane, Pinson; Noon – 2 pm.
So sorry to hear about the death of your father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
Your dad was such a sweet guy. What a blessing to have had a daddy like yours. It was obvious how much he loved you and your girls. I hope you’ll find comfort in all of the good memories. You and your family are in my thoughts.
“Cheers” to our favorite comedian! Terrill, you have always been the most approachable, silliest, wittiest, spontaneous fella we’ve ever known! Loved you so much nearly 50 years, and going to miss you forever! Sherry-Brookes-Isabella-Phelan-Joanna-Michael
