Don M. Goodin

June 08, 1942 ‒ October 04, 2020

Radnor, Ohio

Don M. Goodin, age 78 of Radnor, passed away Sunday evening, October 4, 2020, at Riverside Hospital following a brief illness.

He was born to the late Clarence and Hazel (Darst) Goodin in Coshocton on June 8, 1942. Don graduated from Radnor High School in 1960. He proudly served his country as a jet engine mechanic in the US Air Force.

In 1968, he married Virginia (Wilson), his beloved wife of 52 years. Together they built a farmstead and raised a family.

Don and Virginia farmed the fields of their Goodin Farms. He farmed a total of 54 years and with humility and hard work, he took great care of their farmstead. Hobbies were centered on farming, just as his life.

Don was a man of his word who loved the Lord above all else. He attended the Salem Evangelical Church in Marion. His family and farm were where his heart will always be and for which he will be remembered.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife Virginia, daughters Rebecca (Richard) Oberdier of Radnor, Brenda (Troy) Putnam of Hillsboro, 6 grandchildren: Jarrod Oberdier, Isaac Oberdier, Cole Putnam, Sarah (Kurt) Corcoran, Ethan Putnam, and Hannah Putnam.  Three great-grandsons, Caden, Ethan, and soon to arrive Judah. Brother John (Carolyn) Goodin of LaRue.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Lois (Goodin) Janos.

Graveside services will be held at Radnor Cemetery 2:30 p.m. on Friday, October 9th, with Pastor Adam Issler officiating.  Veterans honors will be provided by the Delaware County Vietnam Veterans Association. Masks are suggested and social distancing will be encouraged. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center in Delaware.

Memorial contributions can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

  • Ginny and family,
    I was so sorry to learn of Donnie’s death. We can never be prepared for the departure of a loved one or spouse. I enjoyed being with you when being back in Ohio for a short visit. Growing up together, attending Radnor High School, was filled with many happy memories of Donnie. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Donnie will be missed by many who knew him.

  • Having gone through a great loss myself last year I understand what you are going through. As you know only God gives the comfort and peace you seek. Knowing without a shadow of doubt you will see them again and that they (not you) are the happiest they’ve ever been in heaven means everything! God is truly good and knows what we need. Keep leaning on Him. He says in His word He heals the broken hearted. The closer we stay to Him in reading His word and prayer the more the healing comes. Christian based grief /video classes can really help as well-our church has an ongoing one as it helps a lot of people and if interested I can get you info. Praying for your family. In Christian Love, Gina (co-worker of Becky)

  • Virginia, We are so sorry for your loss. Donnie was a good friend to all the farming area around Prospect and Radnor. I grew up in the same farming area and went to the Radnor School. As we rode the bus to school Donnie was my little brother and John was my big brother. I have lots of good times to remember about Don as very good friend. Our prayers are with you as you go forward.

  • To the Goodin Family,

    Please accept my sincere sympathy for the passing of your husband, father, and grandfather. I always enjoyed my conversations with Don about the grain markets and could always tell he had a smile on his face, just by the tone of his voice and the words that we shared. May you all find comfort and peace in the memories that you and Don have created together.

  • Ginny and girls,
    Its so hard to find the right words to say at a time like this. Its been a while since we’ve spent time together but you have never left our hearts. Life moves so fast and we sometimes put off the important things. The people that made a difference in your life. You and Donnie were those people to us. The times we spent together, the memories we made and your love will always be our hearts. Donnie is in the arms of our Lord. He doesn’t need our prayers now but we pray for the loved ones that are left behind to go on without him. God will give you strength.

  • Virginia & Family, We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Donnie. It has been several years since we have seen you, but we have many good memories of the years gone by. Our prayers go out to you & your family.

  • Dearest Virginia,
    We want to send our deepest sympathy to you and your lovely family. We will miss seeing Don’s smile and hearing his gorgeous voice in church. Know that when one of our church family mourns, we too mourn with you. Continued prayers and love being sent to you. God bless you always.

  • Our spirits would be lifted when we would meet up with Donnie and Virginia. He was the kind of guy you wanted to seek out in a group. So sorry.

  • Dear Virginia, We are deeply, deeply sorry for your loss. Words truly fall short at these times. Don always exuded a quiet strength, and always had a twinkle in his eye. He will be greatly missed by his Salem church family. Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family. Clif and Cynthia Wenig

  • Brenda- you, Troy, the kids, and your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers. Please know we are thinking of you during this difficult time. Hugs- the Ortliebs
