Tis a sad day in the skydiving world. Terry Goode passed from this life Wednesday Feb 8th. There will be services Monday 13th, 2:00PM, at the First Baptist Church in Glenpool, OK. This info was relayed to me by "Stooby" (DZO @ Skydive Airtight). More info will be on Facebook. RIP Terry. ~Lloyd
What I did know of you from MRVS and Tulsa made me realize I didn't know you well over the years and I probably should have made a better effort.

I had the privalige to work with and learn from Terry in his last days of skydiving. the knowledge he imparted on me could never be put in print or video. The man was cat quick on a out of control student. His way with words priceless!! RIP Terry.
The thing I remember about Terry the most besides his energy and bios instructional skills was his occasional complaint about his cross braced canopy opening hard and it killing his back occasionally. I guess we all have been there with a canopy opening one time or another. Anyway Blue Skies Terry It was a pleasure knowing you during my time at Skydive Houston.

Jumped with Terry in Independence Mo. back in the late 90's. It was fun watching him with an out of control student, he made it look so easy. Haven't talked to you in a few years Terry but I'm gonna miss you. Blue ones brother
The last jump I made with Terry was a rodeo at San Marcos. He loved jumping barefoot and tucked his flip-flops into his sweatshirt. They were gone when we landed. I saw him about a year later in Oklahoma and he was nearly blind from Diabetes. I was surprised. When I asked him if he could see when we jumped together. He said "Not really, that's why we did a rodeo!" :)
You will fly on in the hearts and minds all who knew you.
Damn! We enjoyed Terry during his time with Skydive Houston.

I agree, John! Met Terry at Skydive Houston; I loved that he always had time to share knowledge and enjoyed his friendship immensely. Got the chance to hang out and jump with him over Monterey Bay, CA, which was memorable. Never got enough of his story-telling and his way of chilling out.
