He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Margaret (Peggy Walker) Goodyear, and their three children, Debbie JoAnn Goodyear Worley, Roy Lamar Goodyear, and Margaret Joyce Ann Goodyear Thompson. He is also survived by sons-in-law, Steve Worley and Michael Thompson, daughter-in-law Kathryn Elizabeth Naugle Goodyear; twelve grandchildren, Kevin, Jayson, Tyler, Brandon, and Charlana Masters; Shannon, Dusty, Jesse and Belle Goodyear; Meaghan and Jordan Thompson, and Wade Worley.
