Chief Goodman grew up in Norwood and dedicated himself to serving the citizens of Norwood during his 33 year career with the Norwood Fire Department. Along with having a lasting impact on countless lives, he rose through the ranks and served his last 17 years as chief of the Norwood Fire Department.

Chief Goodman will truly be missed by the fire department, where he considered the members part of his family. The love of the fire department was overshadowed only by his love for his family, especially his loving wife Betty, children Melissa and Curt, and his special love and dedication to his grandchildren, JT, Grace and Curt, to whom he was known as ‘Pepaw’.
