Support Russ Goodman's, Cremation & Memorial

Russel (Russ) Goodman passed away on October 14th with his sister and his best friend by his side. He was no longer able to live the life he wanted and was at peace. 

He had a long battle with physical and mental illness that strained many of the relationships he held dear and is now free. He is remembered as a kind man who was not afraid to share his emotions, he loved fishing and being in nature. He was in tune with his Native American heritage and made sure his daughters got to know those traditions. He also had a passion for wrestling and did a great Hulk Hogan impersonation.

I, Amber Rose Forbes ham in charge of his final expenses. Unfortunately we do not believe anything was set aside to prepare for his funeral arrangements. I am covering the cost of cremation and other memorial expenses. I asked for your help in this challenging time for us all, I am not working at the moment due to childcare challenges in this pandemic and am trying to recover from postpartum depression. This was a very unexpected tragedy for our family and I am trying my best to honor him.

We plan to spread his ashes in some of his favorite places in nature. Thank you for your support and love.
