Thurston Eugene “Terry” Goddard, 71, of Fort Valley, passed away on Friday, March 12, 2021. Funeral services will be private.

Terry was born on June 24, 1949, in Mason, Michigan, to the late Leon Earl Goddard and Donna Mae Davis Goddard. He worked with Kruger Roofing as a roofer. Terry had a need for speed, always working on and racing cars. He also drove cars in demolition derbies. Terry’s greatest joy was being a daddy and grandpa.
