Floyd R. "Dick" Goodman, 82, of Jackson, formerly of McClure, Ill., passed away Saturday, March 22, 2008, at Saint Francis Medical Center.
He was born Aug. 18, 1925, in McClure to George Franklin and Ella Mae Staub Goodman. Floyd and Wanda Lee Littleton were married Oct. 7, 1952, in Piggott, Ark.
He was baptized into the Pentecostal belief Feb. 21, 1961, in Cape Girardeau.
After serving honorably in the U.S. Army from 1948 to 1951, he worked for the John I.

He then worked as project engineer with Alter Barge Lines in Florida, overseeing the building of three casino boats. During his retirement dinner, the company surprised him with the distinct honor of having a Peavey towboat named the Floyd Goodman.
