Carl Raymond Good
September 19, 1929 - December 13, 2017

Carl Raymond Good, 88, passed away peacefully on Dec. 13, 2017, at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa. He was a former resident of the Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village in Lewisburg.
Born in Montandon, Pa., the son of Calvin Oliver and Anna Forney Good on Sept 19,1929. He was the youngest of seven children. His four brothers and two sisters all preceded Carl in death.
He grew up on a farm, which, his father hoped he would continue to run, but Carl dreamed of a different life and pursued a successful career in sales, sales management and consulting.
On Dec 24, 1947, Carl married the love of his life, Alberta Louise Kline, of Lewisburg, Pa., and together they shared a life of caring for each other in a marriage that lasted 67 years. Alberta went on ahead of Carl to wait for him three years ago on Oct. 30, 2014.
During their years together, they raised two children, Carole Louise and Steven Lawrence, as they moved from place to place following Carl's career. After retirement, Carl and Alberta spent their time with friends, family, and, most importantly, their grandchildren. They loved to travel, and shared this love for adventure with their grandchildren. They took their children and grandchildren on trips to Florida and across the country, supporting and encouraging them to explore and experience the world. They spent the final years of their life back in Lewisburg close to where they grew up and are now together again.
Carl had a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy which, weakened his muscles as he aged limiting his mobility yet he never let this hold him back from enjoying a full and rich life.
Carl is survived by his daughter, Carole Louise Good Hurst and her husband, Randolph, and their three children, Linsey Ann Hurst, Adam Michael and his wife, Anouska Hamlin Hurst, and Evan Harrison Hurst; and, his son, Steven Lawrence Good and his wife, Kathryn Nicholson Good, their five children, Brandon Stephen and his wife, Jillian Miller Good, Jordan Thomas and Christina Lea Good, Jacob Sotaro & Laurel Rebekah Good Kurashige, Nathan and Hannah Marie Good Starbird, and Elisabeth Mary Good.
