In addition to crimefighting, he loved his family, his dog Elliot, the Minnesota Twins, the BWCA, and Vikings football.
He retired from Medronic after working there for many years.
He will be deeply missed here on Earth by his wife of 58 years, Jan; children Buzz (Wanda) Goodell, John "Woody" (Cathy) Goodell, Jennifer (Bob) Gerold; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and many, many more family and friends.
