Orville Goodner, of East Ridge, Tennessee, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, November 26, 2021.
Though he was saddened to leave his wife Betty and son Charles, he was ready to leave this old world of pain and suffering. He was looking forward with great anticipation to be with our Lord Jesus Christ and all the promises of Heaven.
He is also survived by his sisters, Jean Hayes and Charlotte Youngblood; several nieces and nephews; special friends Barry and Ann Gunter; the gang at O K Auto Service (Tim, Ronnie, Glen, Scott, and of course the outstanding sweet Evie).
He owned and operated OK Auto Service on Rossville Boulevard for more than 40 years before turning the business over to his son. One of his hobbies was restoring hotrods, having owned and shown them at car shows throughout the southeastern United States where he won numerous and various awards. His favorite hotrod was always the 1934 Fords.
For the past 10 years he faithfully attended and loved everyone at Anchor of Hope Baptist Church.
