ORRVILLE – Jesse E. Goudy, age 60, passed away unexpectedly on October 30, 2019.
Born on October 18, 1959 in Orrville to the late Ellsworth and Mary (Shane) Goudy, he was a 1978 graduate of Dalton High School and resident of Orrville for the past 13 years, previously of Dalton. A member of New Pointe Community Church in Wooster, Jesse was a self-employed truck driver currently leased to Angerer – Miller Trucking, and had worked as head of maintenance for 17 years at OrrVilla.
For those of you who knew Jesse, you knew he was more than just a single spaced paragraph in a generic obituary. He was a man we all can aspire to be. He was that person you knew that you could call and he would be there in an instant to lend a hand. Jesse never met a stranger. The light that emanated from him when he entered a room remained long after he left. Jesse loved three things most in this world: his family, his wife and most importantly, his God.
Preceded in death by his step-father, Earl Neiss, he is survived by his beloved wife of 38 years, Deborah; son, Justin of IL; daughter, Jenna (Shane) Berry of Creston, OH; grandchildren, Jadon Weyrauch, and Easton Berry; brothers, Randy (Sandy) Goudy of Jeromesville, OH, Delvin (Sheryl) Goudy of Sterling, OH; sister, Brenda (Bob) Lake of Kannapolis, NC; nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
