Clyde Eugene Goon

WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Clyde Eugene Goon, 81, of West Terre Haute, passed away at 8:55 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, in Regional Hospital in Terre Haute. He left this life surrounded by his loving family at his bedside.

He retired in 1988 as the plant superintendent for Midwestern Gas Transmission Company in Potomac after 33 years of service.

He was born Sept. 20, 1931, in Mifflin, Ohio, to John and Viola Goon.

Survivors include his wife, Myrna Loy Fitzgerald Goon, whom he married on May 6, 1955, in Genoa, Texas; a son and daughter-in-law, Edwin and Sandy Goon, of Oxford, Ind.; a daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Mike Lucas, of West Terre Haute; a brother, David Goon, and his wife, Geraldine; a sister, Margaret Goon, both of Marion, Ohio; five grandchildren, Ryan Patrick Goon and his wife, Emilee, Kevin Lee Goon and his wife, Brittany, Jerod Lucas, Jeremy Lucas and Janelle Lucas; a great-granddaughter, Landary Loy Goon; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, three sisters and one brother.

Clyde grew up on a farm and always enjoyed that life. After his retirement, he helped a local farmer and enjoyed doing farm work. He also enjoyed working in his garden, raising farm animals and doing yard work and home repairs.

His hobbies he enjoyed included woodworking, fishing, go-kart racing, mushroom hunting and, most of all, spending time with his grandchildren and great-granddaughter.

Clyde was a graduate of Hayesville High School in Hayesville, Ohio, in the Class of 1949. He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, serving from 1952 to 1956, where he was a flight line mechanic stationed at Ellington Air Force Base in Texas. He was a member of the Terre Haute First Church of the Nazarene.

Funeral services for Clyde will begin at 1 p.m. Thursday in Terre Haute First Church of the Nazarene, 801 Ft. Harrison Road, Terre Haute, Ind., with the Revs. Mark Fleschner and Larry Mathias Sr. officiating. Burial will be in Pleasantview Cemetery. Visitation will be 11 a.m. until service time in the church.

The family suggests that if friends so desire, memorial contributions may be made to Alzheimer’s Foundation, with envelopes available in the church.
