Coach Gooden is one of the finest men I have ever been associated with and I am fortunate of have known him. He has been an inspiration to me my entire life. I have often thought about him over the years with respectful and warm memories. Thank you Coach for everything...
Coach Gooden was major influence on many young lives as they passed thru Hixson Jr High. I'll never forget some of the practices and games we played in basketball and baseball. There were alot of great memories. Condolences to Mike, Mark and the rest of the family.
Not only was Tim a wonderful coach, school administrator and teacher, he was a father figure to me. He was always so level headed and you could talk to him about anything. He was a kind, wonderful man with a great sense of humor. Mike, Mark & Susan - please accept my most sincere and heartfelt sympathy. I feel so proud to have been a small part of his family.
Mr. Gooden was the kind of man that all men should strive to be. He will be missed.
