CHARLES EDMUND GOAD, 75 of Lamesa, TX went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, Nov 18, 2009, at Medical Arts Hospital in Lamesa. Born Oct 19, 1934 in Mt. Airy, NC. He was the only son born to the late Roy and Opal Brewster Goad.

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, Nov 20, 2009 at 10 am at Second Baptist Church with Brother Clifton Igo Officiating. Services are under the direction of Branon Funeral home.
Chuck will be missed by the many friends that's he's kept in touch with, and the websites had helped him to do that. I remember him telling me that Chinese was his favorite food, and the Iris was his favorite flower. He loved that little grand daughter Avery. He loved baby sitting her. He loved each and everyone of his sons and their wives and his grand children and Great Grand Children. He talked to me a lot about his family, He had a great love in his heart for his family and his friend. Chuck was good man, and I'm grateful that he was one of my best friends, and he knew he could tell me anything. Chuck had a hard time sleeping at night, and there was times he would call Iris, and they would stay up talking about a little of everything.
When we had chat room on the 1st and 15th of each month, and if I wasn't on by 8: pm, he'd call me and he always said, Where you at Darling? and there's times when I had to call him and remind him to get on also. but he was a very special friend. and I'll cherish his Memory. You're Gone Chuck but will never be Forgotten.
