Mr. Herbert (Herb) L. Goodrick of Potosi, Missouri, was born on October 11, 1941 in Los Angeles, California, a son to the late Pastor Herbert Bascum Goodrick and the late Mrs. Thelma Neola (Leslie) Goodrick. Herb went to be with his Lord and Savior, surrounded by his family on Saturday, April 10, 2021, having reached the age of 79 years, 5 months, and 30 days.

In addition to his father and mother, Herb was preceded in death by his daughter, Ms. Debbie Sue (Goodrick) Zavoda on March 6, 2021.

Those who remain to cherish his memory and honor his legacy include his three children: David S. Goodrick (wife, Julie) of Ohio, Lori A. Mackey (husband, Mark) of Ohio, Cherie L. Reiche (husband, David) of Michigan; nine grandchildren: Jeffrey Coe (wife, Jordon), Joseph Coe (wife, Kendall), Hannah Goodrick, Samuel Goodrick, Maddie Mackey, William Mackey, Cole Mackey, Dalton Reiche (wife, Samantha), and Clayton Reiche; four great grandchildren: Lincoln Wayne Coe, Mason Coe, Leah Coe, and Stella Jane Reiche; three siblings: Loren Goodrick (wife, Anita), Dwight Goodrick (wife, Dorothy), and Marcia (Goodrick) Womack. Herb is also survived by nieces, nephews, and many dear friends.

Herb proudly served in the United States Navy from June 23, 1959 to June 29, 1961. Herb had a passion for hunting. He especially loved squirrel and coon hunting and he also enjoyed fishing, a true outdoorsman. Herb was an avid reader of “Full Cry” a hunting magazine and looked forward to each issue. Throughout his many years of hunting, Herb would take a dog that some would consider to be a “mutt” and turn it into a successful coon or squirrel dog. Herb loved to ride horses and would go on lengthy trail rides with family and friends, including with his long-time friend Ms. Florence Shinkle Rice.

Lastly, Herb was always a farm boy at heart. He loved country living. While Herb had a “city slicker” job in an executive leadership capacity at the St. Louis Newspaper Guild before he retired, he always loved living in the country, and he loved the Potosi countryside and the people of Potosi.

Visitation will be held Saturday, April 17, 2021 from 10 am until the time of service at 1 pm held at White Oak Grove Baptist Church in Potosi, Missouri. Pastor Scott Welty and Pastor Jeff Richards will be officiating Herb’s funeral. Musical selections will be “Amazing Grace,” “The Anchor Holds,” by Ray Boltz, and “Going Home,” by Chris Tomlin. Military Honors will be presented by the United States Navy and Local VFW Post 6996.

Interment will follow at White Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery. Funeral arrangements were respectfully entrusted to DeClue Funeral Home, Potosi, Missouri.
