Jackie Lee Goudy, 84, of San Angelo, Texas, was born in Kokomo, Indiana, on December 24, 1934. He passed away on December 25, 2018, at Swedish Medical Center in Colorado, due to complications after having surgery for Pancreatic Cancer.

He graduated from Kokomo High School and he studied at Colorado State University.

Jack married Patricia AnnaBelle Thomas on August 28, 1960. He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1955 and served 7 years. In 1962, he continued his career as a United States Government Civilian and worked at Lowry Air Force Base in the Technical Training division. Jack and Pat moved to San Angelo, Texas, in 1987 where he continued his career at Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo and at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. He retired after 39 years of service to our country!

After retiring, he continued to enjoy living in San Angelo. He loved working in the yard, building fish ponds (of epic size), playing with electronics, learning to fly drones, woodworking, remodeling, eating good food especially at “Franco’s”, an occasional Gin and Tonic, poker games, playing FarmTown, watching his favorite sports teams: the Denver Broncos and Denver Nuggets, traveling to see family and friends and enjoying their multiple animals. His most recent favorite pastime was feeding his many Koi Fish and playing with Boots, their new kitten. Most of all, he was a loving husband who loved taking care of his one true love, Pat and his Mother in Law, Jimmie Stalcup "Nana".

He was preceded in death by his Father Fred, his Mother Grace and his Brother Bill. He is survived by: his wife Pat of 58 years, his 4 children: Terri, Kathy, Jeff and Lisa; his 3 Son in Laws: John, Ken and Rich; his 10 grandchildren: Jason, Alan, Danny, Alaina, Kristina, Alicia, Jamal, Max, Paige, and Alysa; his 2 Great Grandchildren: Xavius and Irelyn.

To the Goudy Family,
With whom I probably spent as much of my childhood as I did with my own family. Where we always did the cool stuff - backyard pools, slip-n-slides and trampolines. Sleeping bags on the back porch complete with ghost stories, shrink art in the oven and Revelle models in the living room. Sleep overs staying up "late" to watch Creature Feature and Tora,Tora,Tora! Walk-a-thons, Bike-a-thons, skateboards and sleds. I haven't seen you all in a long time, but the memories are always in my heart.

I am so sorry for your loss,

Rest in Peace Mr. Goudy

Dear Pat and family,
We want you to know how much Jack and all of you mean and have meant to our family. Our friendship that transpired from our move to San Angelo has developed into family. Jack and Jerry, as did Pat and Shirley, found they had much in common. Therefore, we have had many fun times through this adventure. We love you and pray God's healing through peace and comfort for all of you.
Much love, Jerry and Shirley

Pat -
I was blessed to be part of your lives when my parents and I moved to San Angelo in 86. None of us knew San Angelo, and we went on many whimsical trips and had a ton of laughs! You, Jack, Tom and Royalyn Brady and many other Lowrey friends had get togethers at my house on Lindenwood, or at your house. Always feeling loved! You and Jack were like another set of parents full of advice and wit.

As I just finished the hardest year of my life fighting breast cancer, I can imagine your feelings right now. I love you Pat and Jack will always hold a special place in my heart.

My condolences to all of you.

Sincerely,
Becky

We would like to thank all of the people that cared for Jack at Swedish Medical Center in Colorado. He was taken care of with the utmost respect and love from the Doctors, Nurses, Technicians, Therapists, Clerks and the list goes on. One doctor we would like to personally thank is Dr. Kian Modanlou, his surgeon. He showed such compassion when caring for Jack that we felt reassured when we faced the long days, endless questions, concern and unknown procedures while Jack was in his care. Thank you all from our hearts for everything you did for Jack and our family when we were there.
