Obituary for Jon Ragnar Goodman


Jon Goodman was born May 1, 1938, the youngest of five children born to Bjarni and Elizabeth Goodman of Winnipeg. He passed away on May 12, 2020 after many health issues over the past few years.

He was predeceased by his parents Bjarni and Elizabeth, his in-laws Charlie and Sue Hardy, his brothers Bob Goodman and Elmer Goodman, and sisters Lillian Whiteside and Helen Petursson. He is survived and terribly missed by his wife Gail, sons Bill and Rick, and his grandsons Jackson, Jordan, and Jacob.

Jon grew up in Winnipeg's West End, attending Principal Sparling School and Daniel McIntyre Collegiate. He then went to the University of Manitoba graduating in 1962 with a Bachelor of Chartered Accountancy. He worked at his chosen profession in Saskatoon and Winnipeg.

Sports were important to Jon both as a participant and spectator. He loved to golf and belonged to the Riverside Golf Club in Saskatoon and then at Breezy Bend Golf and Country Club where he served 2 consecutive terms and president of the Men's league. During the winter he would enjoy curling at the Thistle Curling Rink.

Football was a favourite pastime for Jon. He served as treasurer for the Winnipeg Rods. And, for many years, he and Gail had season tickets for the Blue Bombers. While in Saskatoon and then in Winnipeg, Jon enjoyed the fellowship of the Kinsmen and K40 clubs.

Although he didn't get to visit Iceland, Jon was very proud of his Icelandic heritage.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, Diabetes Canada, or to a charity of your choice.

Due to Covid 19 restrictions, a private family interment has taken place.

A limb has fallen from our family tree
But please
Do not grieve for me
The best times, the laughter, the song,
The good life that I lived when I was strong.

If Dad were able to speak now I am certain his message would be very similar to the one above. Raise a glass, remember a joke or two that he told, and focus on all the good times. Profound sadness, for me started when he got very sick, and I miss him tremendously every minute of every day. I know he would not want to see me crying and being sad so I am going to remember always the fun times, and perhaps at some point the pain will subside.
Here is something that some of you may recall;
He's a Wise Old Owl, a Feather a**ed fowl he sits all night and he hoots and he howls!
The Owl cried .............but he didn't mean me......

Of all the people who have walked the earth, I am proud to say that I feel I most closely resemble my Uncle Jon in my world view and somewhat twisted sense of humour.
My favourite memories of Jon are the too many times to count when his face would light up in a smile that seemed to involve every muscle in his body.
I miss you Uncle Jon, but I will continue to honour your memory by trying to smile as big as you did!
