Age 48 of Tawas City, Michigan and longtime resident of Standish, Michigan passed away at his home on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 surrounded by family.  He was born to Leonard and JoAnn (nee Gliniecki) Goodman on October 22, 1968. Randy graduated in 1986 from Standish – Sterling Central High School. He continued his education and graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with a degree in Communications.  Randy was a “Jack of all Trades”.  Over the years, he worked in the family business, as a radio personality, as a salesman and as a handyman.

Randy was always helping others. He was first to volunteer to coach his kids' sports teams, help at their school or participate in charity events. He was quick to offer anyone advice, a helping hand or simply a sarcastic comment to evoke a smile. Randy loved music and played several different instruments. He was a member of a local band for many years and would often break out into song wherever he was. Randy will be remembered for his friendly personality, quick wit, and infectious laugh.
