Hall Carson Goode

January 26, 1925February 10, 2020

On Monday, February 10, 2020, Hall Carson Goode, loving husband and father of three, passed away in his home in Atlanta at the age of 95.

He leaves his wife of 72 years, Helen Krug Goode; his children and their spouses, Carol and Terrell McElheney, Susanna and Lynn Hall Goode, and Christine and Michael White. He also leaves his sister, Julia P. Goode; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Born in Carnesville, Georgia and raised in East Point, the son of Agatha and James Goode. After completing high school at Russel High, Mr. Goode joined the United States Army in 1943 and was stationed in Italy during WWII. After the war he was honorably discharged in 1946 as a Sergeant.

During his time in the army he sent his earnings home to his father. Upon returning from WWII, he purchased a small poultry company in College Park, Georgia. His brother, James Goode, joined him in business at which point it became Goode Brothers Poultry Company and for 49 years the brothers ran the business together.

Mr. Goode had a lifelong passion for gardening and was very involved with the Atlanta Botanical Gardens where he received many awards for his chrysanthemums and bonsai. In later years, he also became an event judge and mentor to other gardeners. Since moving to Canterbury Court he worked in their garden and was able to share his creations with other residents.

Certainly sorry to hear about the loss of Hall Goode. He and Jim and Goode Brothers, company and family, were great for the poultry industry and consumers and College Park. Glad I had the privilege of knowing him. Saw him last years ago at 50th Anniversary of Chick-Fil-a at Greenbrier Shopping Center when Truett Cathy had him there to thank him for early work with him and Dwarf House and Chick-fil-A. Kayanne joins in sending our strongest sympathy to Helen and Lynn and all of the Goode family. Appreciate their friendship and strong support for the Georgia Poultry Federation including Lynn’s service as our President.

Hall was my hero! Always the gentleman with a big smile and kind words. His bonsai skills were phenomenal, and his love forHelen was very touching. He was a great example for all who knew and loved him.

My sincere condolences to Helen and family. Hall was a most wonderful and respected Southern gentleman of the classic style. Always a pleasure to be with and to share our tennis days and
lunches with. We will miss you Hall.
