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

Terry,

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.

RIP Brother.

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.

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

When I first got my rigger's certificate Terry handed me his rig and said "lets see how good you are"
Two days later he became my first save...I charged him 2 bucks for scaring the crap out of me.

Blue Skies Terry, I enjoyed our time together at Spaceland. It was an honor knowing you and jumping with you. One of my most memorable jumps is an AFF with you on the other side. Fly Free brother!

Hi DJ~

The first time I met Terry at Spaceland I was waiting @ the loading area to go do a solo, he came over and asked if I wanted to join a formation and how many jumps I had.

I told how many, and he said, "In that case, ya mind if WE join YOU" BlushCool

Great talent and even greater personality...he will be missed!

Thanks, Terry.

My SO did a week-long AFF-I pre course w/ you at Skydive Chicagoland. She passed w/ flying colors at SD Austin a few weeks later. AFF-I, many moons back, when it was a lot tougher: at 360 skydives.

I still have the training videos w/ you. FLY FREE!

Re: [BIGUN] Terry Goode [In reply to] Can't Post

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.

Terry was one of my AFF instructors. Attached video (unfortunately) centers on me, but you can clearly see Terry giving me thumbs up.

I remember watching Terry toggle whip is velocity (it was scary) , swoop right up to the van driver in Monterey, and grab a lit cigaret at the end of each swoop. they did this on load after load.

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.

Blue skies, black death and EFS, brother! Wink
