Kevin L. Goodman, 43

November 02, 2017

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Kevin Lyle Goodman, 43, of Alexandria, Virginia, passed away unexpectedly on November 2, 2017

He was born in Pittsfield, Mass., on January 9, 1974, to Karen Goodman Pedercini and the late Richard I. Goodman. When Kevin graduated from Mt. Greylock Regional High School in 1992, he bravely served his country in the United States Army as the crew chief on a reconnaissance helicopter both domestically and overseas. 

Upon completion of his service to the Army, Kevin pursued his passion for knowledge. He received his degree in Computer Science from North Adams State College in 1999. He then continued his education, completing his master’s degree in Education from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in 2003. After his military service and following the completion of his education, Kevin continued to serve his country as a civilian by contributing his technical skills as a government sub-contractor. 

Kevin was an avid runner, participating in road races, Spartans, and ToughMudders. One of his favorite hobbies was paint ball. When he wasn’t engaging himself physically, he volunteered his time with veterans helping them to adjust to and succeed in civilian life. He was very dedicated to his dogs, Starbuck and Caprica, spending his off time loving, playing with, and walking them.  

Besides his loving mother, he leaves behind his stepfather, Craig A. Pedercini; a brother and sister-in-law, Sean and Autumn Goodman; and stepsister, Nicole Pedercini. 

Funeral notice: Calling hours at the Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, West Chapel, 521 West Main St., North Adams, Mass., are Friday, November 10, 2017, from 4 to 6 p.m. Graveside Service with full military honors will take place Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 9:30 a.m. at Eastlawn Cemetery, Williamstown, Mass.

For his friends and family that would like to make a donation in Kevin’s memory, the family is asking those generous gifts be sent to The Horsepower Equine Assisted Leaning (HEAL) Foundation for PTSD through the funeral home.

I am sorry to hear about Kevin's passing. I was fortunate to have Kevin for several courses in college, and he was a great professor and a great person. He really helped me figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life at a point in my life I really had no idea. He will be missed.
