Bernard H. "B.H" Goodman Obituary
B.H. died peacefully in his daughter's home in Austin TX. He was born and raised in Tucumcari.  His parents were Lucille and Joseph Goodman. His grandparents moved to Tucumcari in the early 1900's and started what became Goodman's Cash Grocery on Main St. a family business employing three generations of Goodman's
B.H. (an accomplished musician) was a member of the THS band, National Honor Society, Camera Club, and the Rifle Club. He graduated from THS in 1948 and stayed active with the alumni. He served two years as a First Lt. in the Army before finishing college with a degree in photography.
Everything he attempted, he did well. His career as a professional photographer ended after he purchased his first few buses (Goodman's Rough Riders) in 1969 which grew into Goodman Bus Service. It soon became the largest private transportation company in Houston providing safe transport for over a million adults and children.
He had three children, Lois, Jay, Sheri, and a live-in mother when he met Edna Wood who had four children, Sherry, Charmain, Channing, Daphne and her own live-in mother. After being together for 13 years, they finally married on July 4, 1977.
B.H. (Bald Head as he would say) had a great sense of humor. He was an extraordinary being who was loving, kind, and extremely generous. His first love was his work but when one of his seven children or nine grandchildren needed his attention, they became his priority. He made himself available to all with unconditional loving support and intelligent common sense advice.
He loved Edna so much, he would often say, that he couldn't live without her. She passed away on October 29, 2012. She has been waiting patiently and now they are together again.
A memorial service will be held at The Houston Garden Center 1500 Herman Drive on April 29th at noon.
In lieu of flowers, please give to the in his honor.
