Born in Farmers Branch, Good went to school in Richardson and Ferris and came to
Dallas about 1909. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps during World War I and was
stationed at Love Field. Although working as a mechanic, he learned to fly in
his spare time. After the war he continued to fly when commercial aviation was
in experimental stages.
About 1920, he became co-owner of Dallas' first plane chartering company, Good &
Foster, which hade its office at Love Field. In 1930 he started working for a
contracting firm. Five years later, Good went to work for a furniture company,
and in 1942 he became a Lockheed Aircraft employee. He retired two years ago.
He is survived by his wife; three brothers, C. A. Good, Carrollton, and
Good, and Oran Good, both of Farmers Branch, and two sisters, Mrs. A. C. Reeves
Burkburnett, Wichita County, and Mrs. Flora Rowe, Farmers Branch.
Pallbearers will be Arthur Good, Rex Good and Clarence Good, all of Carrollton;
