In loving memory of a wonderful husband, Dad, and brother.
After a life well lived and a courageous, hard-fought battle with cancer, Stan, age 83, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, with family at his side. His unwavering faith and quiet determination sustained him during the past year and a half since his diagnosis.
Born in Vita, Manitoba, Stan was the fourth child born to Mildred and Hrien (Mundi) Goodman.
He was predeceased by his parents, sister Sylvia, wives Rose (mother of his children), Bev, and Ruby, and son-in-law Todd Miller.
He is survived by his brother Marvin and sister Ethelyn (Sinclair).
His memory will be forever cherished by his wife Lois; son Glen (Marlene) and their children Mindy (Levi), Brooke (Jon) and great-grandchildren Sailor and Avonlea; son Grant (Pam) and their children Justin (Jenny), Cidney (Paul); daughter Jennifer and her children Kierra, Brynn, and Micah, as well as a lifetime's accumulation of friends.
Stan was loved and appreciated in his own community and far beyond. He was a hard-working farmer for most of his life, retiring in his mid-sixties to become a hard-working sawyer! Known to many as "Stan Goodman the wood man," he spent many hours sawing lumber, and creating rustic furniture. He enjoyed interacting with his customers as he showed them his work.
In his early years, Stan enjoyed playing baseball for Greenbush, MN. He was also an avid hunter throughout his life. Anyone spending time with Stan would soon see his strength and determination. Yet even more admirable were the qualities of kindness, loyalty, humility, and generosity that so permeated who he was. He didn't judge people and was a compassionate man, often helping those in need.
Thank you, dear friends, for supporting Stan and our family with your many thoughts, care and prayers. Our special thanks to Dr. Reimer and all of the staff involved with Bethesda CancerCare and the Southern Health Palliative Care team who helped us to make the best of Stan's last days at home.
We will miss him dearly.
The funeral service was held on Monday, August 7, 2023, at International Christian Fellowship Church, Piney, MB.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Many fond memories of this gentle man from my old hunting days with Glen. Visits with Stan were always an enjoyable part of my hunting experience in Piney. His talented millwork comes to mind, with Stan having custom made me large posts and beams, and a beautiful shelf, when I was renovating our cottage. Deepest condolences to Glen and Marlene and all your family on the loss of such a wonderful man. I hope you find comfort in knowing how lucky you were to share your lives with this very kind man. Truly sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Jim and Diane Crowe (Friend) on: Aug 06, 2023
