Willis Goodenough, Jr.

April 26, 1964 ~ April 29, 2020
Faced with the prospect that Joe Biden could someday be president, Willis Goodenough, Jr. died peacefully at University of Michigan Hospital due to complications from an acute fungal pneumonia (NOT Covid). Willis was born April 26, 1964 in Vancouver, WA to Willis Sr. and Bernice (Meridieth) Goodenough. Willis had more degrees and professional certificates than we can count. He spent most of his career in the Pulp and Paper Industry while dragging his family around the country though they would not have had it any other way. Willis can likely be found in Heaven posting political memes, forwarding tasteless internet jokes (check your spam folder, but not at work) and watching Bigfoot documentaries. He laughed at every chance, told the best jokes with his quick wit and sarcasm and loved his family fiercely with every piece of his heart. He leaves behind his beloved tractor; trophy wife, Carmen (Zander); and a legacy in his shit ton of children: Stephanie (Derek) McHugh; Emily, Bethany, Addison, Samuel and Gabriel Goodenough; all the dogs he hated but tolerated for his wife; and just when he thought he couldn’t fall in love again, his beautiful granddaughter Ruby was born. He also leaves behind his loving father, Willis Sr.; brother, Dan (Jennifer) Goodenough; sister, Sharon (Dave) Wheeler; and many nieces and nephews. Following his wishes, there will not be a service, but well wishes are encouraged while drinking a Jameson and ginger ale in his honor. Epstein didn’t kill himself.
