David Goodman, 74, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2021 in Bloomington, Indiana, with the love of his family surrounding him.
David was born and raised on a farm in Indianapolis, Indiana and was the eldest of three boys. Farm chores were a part of life and he soon learned to dole out the less desirable ones to his younger brothers. He attended Indiana University, where he met his devoted wife of 51 years, Joan, and together they remained in Bloomington to raise a family.
A serial entrepreneur, David’s business ventures ranged from selling dorm refrigerators in college to helping residents of Bloomington and surrounding areas navigate the complexities of the health insurance marketplace. He left few stones unturned along the way. Many knew him for his outsize personality or his knack for bartering.
He will be remembered by his wife Joan; their children, Josh (Fern), Michele (Zach) and Michael (Jodi); seven grandchildren; his brother, Mason (Rene); and numerous extended family members and friends.
David was predeceased by his parents, Frances and Lawrence, and his brother, Daniel.
