Are there rocking chairs in Heavenwhere little babies go?Do the angels hold you closelyand rock you to and fro?Do they talk silly baby talkto get a smile or two,and sing the sleepy lullabiesI used to sing to you?My heart is aching for you,my angel child so dear.You brought such joy into my life,the short time you were here.I know you're in a happy place,and in God's loving care.I dream each night I'm rocking youin Heaven's rocking chair.

Donald Goode

Aug 27, 1927 - Feb 16, 2024

location-icon

Corpus Christi, TX

The Goode Life: Donald’s Story August 27, 1927 - February 16, 2024 Donald Goode was born on August 27, 1927 in Danevang, Texas to William Arthur Goode and Nadine Hogan-Goode. Donald grew up alongside his sister, Melba Goode, in the community of El Campo, Texas. In August of 1947, at the age of 20-years-old, he enlisted in the US Army , serving as an Army Medic. Cpl. Donald Goode proudly served his country in the Korean War through February of 1952. Donald was not only a product of the Great Depression; he was a success story from it. Growing up among a family who always worked hard further motivated him to continue his education by attending Southwest Texas State College in San Marcos, Texas. While in college, Donald took his studies to Mexico to learn Spanish. It was there he’d not only learn the language, but also meet the love of his life. In the city of Puebla, Donald met a young woman named María Angeles Cortes. The connection was instant and electric. Flash forward three months, he’d ask for her hand in marriage. The two wed on August 14 of 1965 in the city where they met. The couple then moved to Sinton, Texas to begin their home, welcoming three children: Beatriz, Nancy and Arthur. The house would quickly become bustling with maroon and white Pirate pride, different instruments that would fill rooms with off-key musical notes and piles of homework and school projects stacked upon kitchen, coffee and dining room tables. Donald was not just a teacher at home for his children, but several others in his community as well. “Mr. Goode” had a teaching career that spanned many years and touched the lives of dozens of students from Houston, Taft and ultimately, the Sinton ISD from which he would later retire. His passion for education was one he passed down to his daughter, Beatriz, who is still a teacher in Sinton. School breaks, summers and holidays were spent in Mexico with the family he created and the one he gained so many years ago in Puebla and Mexico City. As time went on, those families would grow as well, and Donald and Angeles graciously opened their Sinton home to the many nieces, nephews and cousins from Mexico who would come to know his hospitality as well. To them he was adoringly referred to as, “Tío Dón.” From Sinton, Donald and Angeles continued to watch their family grow with their grandchildren Leslie, Stephanie, Justin, Crew and Calvin. In November of 2023, he met his first great-grandchild, Rylan. He loved watching Gunsmoke, the news and basketball (especially anything that involved commentary from his favorite player, Charles Barkley), with his little yorkie, Marina, at his side. He enjoyed visiting thrift shops and finding treasure in something someone else had failed to see the value in. To him, everything had potential, and everything held a special story. Over the near 60 years that they spent together, whether it was at the mall, a doctor’s appointment, or someone’s birthday party, Donald had become used to patiently waiting on Angeles, our “Mimi.” We know this trip to Heaven is no different, as we find peace in knowing he will be waiting there as well to warmly welcome her home one day. “Alright, well y’all come back and see us,” are the words he’d say anytime we’d leave his house. Comforting words we can still play in our minds, and that we can look ahead to hearing again when we are all reunited in God’s great glory. Donald B. Goode, 96, passed away peacefully, surrounded by wife, his children and grandchildren on Friday, February 16, 2024 in Corpus Christi, Texas. Donald is preceded in death by his parents, William and Nadine Goode, his sister-Melba Youngdale and son- in- law Michael Dawes. He is survived by his loving wife, Angeles; children, Beatriz Adami (Robert) of Sinton, Arthur Goode (Tara) of Sinton and Nancy Dawes; his grandchildren Leslie (Remy Huston) of Corpus Christi, TX, Stephanie (Ricky Roberts) of Padre Island, TX. Justin Adami of Pflugerville, TX. Calvin and Crew Goode of Sinton, and great-grandson, Rylan Roberts. Thank you for teaching us to love simply, work hard and to be “Goode.” Donald will be greatly missed for his wit, patience, and giving heart. It was through this gentle man, we all got to know and feel such a powerful love. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated Thursday, February 22, 2024, 11:30 AM at Sacred Heart Church in Sinton will Father Yul Ibay as celebrant. A Graveside Service will follow the same afternoon, 1:00 PM at the Coastal Bend State Veterans Cemetery in Corpus Christi, Texas where Donald will be laid to rest.
