    • Obituary:

      WILLOW, CA - Ernest Randall "Randy" Goodgion retired to the teachers' lounge in the sky on Sunday, April 10th, 2005.

      Randy was born February 1, 1934 in Shreveport where he graduated from Byrd High School in 1952 and Centenary College in 1956. Randy possessed considerable humor and brio-always ready to brighten a friend's day with a joke or off-color story. As part of his family's dancing troop, Randy performed with his sisters, Sybil and Nancy Goodgion, for wounded soldiers during World War II at veteran hospitals all over Louisiana and Texas. The troop danced for the Clyde Fant for Mayor Campaign, the Centenary Choir and many area civic clubs. After serving his country in the US Army, Randy moved to Willows, California where he taught English and French for 40 years at Willows High School and Butte College where a scholarship was established in his honor in 1999.

      He is survived by his sisters, Sybil Goodgion Clarke and Nancy Goodgion Mook, as well as his many nieces, nephews, and former students.

      A graveside service will commence at 2:00 PM at Forest Park Cemetery on Tuesday, April 19, 2005. Officiating will be Rev. Steven Spurlock, pastor of Broadmoor United Methodist Church.

      He will be remembered as a jolly, boisterous teacher, uncle, brother, and friend. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Willows High School PTA.
