Carroll Good

Age 90, Shenandoah, Va.

Hughie “Carroll” Good, 90, of Shenandoah, Va. passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at Valley Health Page Memorial Hospital in Luray.

Mr. Good was born December 24, 1931, in Stanley, Virginia and was the son of the late Hughie Dennis and Bessie May Good. 

On November 26, 1955, he married Adelene Christine Conner who preceded him in death on October 22, 1998.

Carroll graduated from Shenandoah High School in 1949.  From 1952 to 1954 he served as a U.S. Army Medic in the Korean War.  In 1954, he began a career at Norfolk Western Railway as a Mechanic, retiring in 1983. During his working years, he served as Union Steward of Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees.  He was a member of Shenandoah Baptist Church and the Shenandoah Avis O. Comer VFW Post 8613 and participated in a senior bowling league at Valley Lanes for a number of years.

After retirement, one of his favorite pastimes was enjoying breakfast with friends at a local restaurant where he shared hunting experiences, railroad stories and memories of his Army service. However, his greatest joy was his grandsons…he was so very proud of them.

He is survived by his daughter, Carolyn S. Good and husband, W.R. of Elkton; two grandsons, Matthew Tyler Good and fiancée, Sarah Balenger of Fredericksburg, and Ethan Conner Good of Elkton.  He was graced with a special relationship with Madeline Lam of Elkton for the past 16 years.
