So sorry to hear of this wonderful man passing. The Goodman family hold such a special place in my heart. A true loving gentleman with a kind Christian spirit. I know he is dancing with Helen now.

I grew up in First Baptist from infancy, and knew Jack as a kind man. Truly a rare icon. Although I moved from Austin in my formative years, Jack was probably the reason I took drafting and mechanical engineering classes, I always respected him.

For Jack Allen and Linda, you must be so proud to have a father like that in your life. I am sorry for you that he is now gone.

Undoubtably the finest man most of us will know in our lifetime. He was a blessing to all he came in contact with throughout his life, and now moved on to heaven to reunite with the love of his life. We here left behind will miss you Jack Goodman!

It was such an honor to have met and served with Jack at the Gathering every Tuesday. Everything about him was pure love, and kindness. His impish grin and smiling eyes, always brought a smile and warm and loved feeling to everyone he met. I am happy to have had a wonderful dance with Jack at the Gathering a few weeks ago. He was the real thing on the dance floor, as in life. He chose God to be with

"If you can't say something good about a person, don't say anything at all," Jack would always say. He set a Christian model of grace, mercy, and acceptance for all of us around him.
We are honored to have known him and to have been enriched by his radiance. God certainly blessed us when he entered our lives!
With much love and affection,
Cindy Hager and Dick Metzger

Jack taught me the value of architecture, professionalism and living life. I am, no doubt, a better architect because of Jack.

Please accept our thoughts and prayers from our family to yours.

Blessings from the Braziels. When we think of Jack, we think very happy thoughts.
He was always so upbeat and kind. It was such a shock to hear about Jack, having seen him less than a week ago. What a legacy he leaves for family and friends.

In His love and ours,
Kay and John

Linda, Jack, All..."A bright, warm light" true. Many, many great memories and times with Jack and Helen. They defined the word "Class", lived the word "Love" and taught the word "Kind". It's hard to split the words Jack & Helen. Just doesn't seem right. We all know this is Jack's passing, but Helen was - and is - so much of who Jack was one can't really do that and do either justice. But for a moment we'll think about

Linda and Jack, I remember your dad and mother well as I spent so much time around your house when we all lived on Vine. Wonderful childhood memories of their love and generosity to the neighborhood kids. Holidays were always special on the block because of your parents parent's enthusiasm for them. I was so awed by the Halloween and Christmas decor that they displayed.

My dad also called on your dad because of both of their lines of business.
