John C. “Jack” Goodspeed, 95, passed away peacefully on March 10, 2012 at the Canyonlands Care Center from causes incident to age.

Jack was born on January 31, 1917 in Moab to John C. and Beula Miller Goodspeed Caillet. He lived in Moab his entire life with the exception of short residences in Azusa, CA and Gold Hills, OR. He had an exceptional memory for the old history of Moab and was a consulting source for a book written on the settling of Moab. He was a huge football and baseball enthusiast and enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

Jack worked in the Uranium mining industry for years and when community leaders encouraged the Hollywood movie companies to use Moab and surrounding areas for location shooting, Jack became the Union Steward in charge of employing all transportation – drivers- and wranglers as well as arranging for the required number of horses and cattle. He personally drove every director and had a warm affection for John Ford. Jack was given a plaque for 40 years of exemplary service. HE finished his work career at Texas Gulf Sulphur.

Jack was the father of eight children; Curtis (Freeda) Goodspeed (deceased), Tyrone Goodspeed, Janet (Keith) Himmelberger, Sharon Scott, Christine (Bill) Shupe, Robert Goodspeed, (deceased) , Joseph Goodspeed, and Phillip Goodspeed. He left a large posterity of grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.

Jack will truly be missed.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
