September 4, 1959 — May 25, 2018

On Friday, May 25, 2018, the Lord called his soldier Joseph Carlton Goode home.Joseph was born to the parents of Lewis Arthur Goode, Sr. and Gloria Helen Goode (both deceased) of Portsmouth, VA

He was the fifth born of this union. He attended Portsmouth Public Schools before deciding to enlist in the United States Army. Joseph was a talented, enthusiastic, independent, and a hard
working young man. He had the gift of cooking, singing, and loved to paint. When he spoke of his work he would say ''I'm the best", that was Joe.

During his years of employment, Joseph cooked at Morrison's Cafeteria, Picadilly, and Country Favorites Restaurant. Joseph always kept a nice warm smile on his face. He touched many people's lives with his encouraging smile, kind words, and the willingness to help in anyway that he could. Joseph gave his life to a young age. He was a former member of Centennial Baptist Church in Portsmouth, YA.  He was in the choir and a member of the Centennial Caravans.

He leaves to cherish his loving memory: His beloved daughter Marsha Jonell Logan (Carl) and granddaughter Mia Fare Moore, five sisters; Jacqueline Roberts (Larry) of Jacksonville, FL, Angela Goode, Gloria Walker, Tclaza Moore, and Jereena Hazelwood, three brothers; Lewis Arthur Goode, Jr., Lloyd Goode and Keith Goode, three adopted sisters; Joan Rainey, Deborah Rainey, and Loretta Rainey of the District of Columbia.

He also leaves behind a host of nieces , nephews, cousins, and other relatives , and a very special friend, Theresa Waters.
