DONALD RAY GOOD, JR

Don Good was born to Donald R Good, Sr. and Ruth M. (Schuetz) Good on June 23, 1952. He grew up in Raytown, and it was attending Raytown South High School that he met his future wife Robin Werner. Don and Robin dated on and off during high school and were married on May 31, 1974. Their family grew to include three sons.

Don’s professional career included retail sales and management before he began his credit union career on April 1, 1983 with Lourdes-St. Regis Credit Union which later became United Catholic Credit Union. He rose in the ranks at the credit union from teller, collections and assistant management to become the President/Manager until Feb. 1, 2012 when United Catholic merged with Holy Rosary Credit Union. There he served as Branch Manager and Education Outreach coordinator until his death on March 23, 2014 at St. Luke’s Hospice House.

Don leaves a legacy for care, compassion and dedication to serving others whether with their financial needs through his work at the credit union to his genuine love and care for every person he met. It became evident in these last days with Don that he truly did not know a stranger, turned his back on no one and was a man of the utmost integrity and love. The outpouring of love and support we were able to share with him from the many whose lives he touched humbled him greatly.

His passion for life, love and his living faith in God is seen in his actions, words and deeds. His family was his most prized possession and he leaves all of us with the legacy of his love, leadership and faith. He leaves behind his wife of nearly forty years Robin Werner Good, his sons Matthew (Carli), Nathan (Sarah) and Timothy. Don also leaves the “light of his eyes” grandchildren Alyssa, Jack, Aiden, Cole and Grant. Also surviving are his sister-in-love Lorrie (Les) Hamilton and nephews Joshua and Jacob. He is also survived by his Aunt and Uncle Betty and Charles Hicks, a special Aunt by marriage, Helen Wilson and a host of cousins, friends, and neighbors.

A Prayer Service and Celebration of Don’s life will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m., March 26 at St. Teresa’s Academy, 5600 Main, Kansas City. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10 a.m. on March 27 at St. Margaret of Scotland Parish, 777 Blackwell Road, Lee’s Summit. The family requests donations to Lee’s Summit Social Services, St. Margaret of Scotland Parish Building Fund or St. Luke’s Hospice House.

We are grateful for all those who loved us through these overwhelming three weeks and most especially the staff at St. Luke’s Hospice House.
