.                                went to be with his Father in Heaven Wednesday, April 17, 2013. A beloved husband, father and grandfather, he was
.                                surrounded by his family at home when he passed from this life.  He had fought a courageous battle with pancreatic
.                                cancer. Up until his diagnosis last fall, he had been blessed with good health.  Throughout his 87 years, he was devoted
.                                to his family and church.  He met his wife, Magdalene, at New Haven Baptist Church and shortly thereafter made a
.                                profession of faith. Since that time, he has served faithfully in the church. He became a deacon in 1952 and continued
.                                that service until his death. He was also a church trustee. As an usher, he liked to greet people with a smile and hand-
.                                shake. He enjoyed helping in the Sunday School office.  A hard worker, he liked to rise early and put in a full day,
.                                whether it was on the farm, in the woods or at the sawmill. He and brothers Clyde and Glen began working with their
;                                father Eddie, a lumber man, at an early age. He and Clyde, who live on adjoining farms, continued the family business
.                                until his death. Clarence was born on June 25, 1925. He spent his early childhood on the Buffalo Mountain, and was
.                                one of four children born to Eddie and Ada Goad. When he was a young boy, the family moved to a home on what is
.                                now Woods Gap Road. His mother eventually opened a country store and operated it for several years. Clarence
.                                attended Mount Ruffner School on Haycock Mountain.  During World War II, Clarence was doing field maneuvers
.                                training in the Army in Texas when a machine gun rolled off a ramp and crushed his right heel. After being treated at a
.                                hospital there, he was transferred to Johns Hopkins in Maryland and then the Valley Forge Hospital in Pennsylvania.
.                                He spent over a year in the hospitals. In recent years, Clarence and Clyde have operated a beef cattle farm and sawmill.
.                                In addition to the cows, Clarence has also enjoyed his donkeys, Jenny and Jill.  He and Magdalene followed their
.                                grandchildren's athletic years at Floyd County High School and became avid Buffalo fans.  Family was very important
.                                to Clarence, and he worked hard to provide for his family. He loved his grandchildren, and he was anticipating the birth
.                                of his first great-grandchild.  At New Haven, Clarence was a member under the leadership of three pastors, the Rev.
.                                Joe Falls, the Rev. Leon Wood, and his current pastor, the Rev. John Chambers. He was preceded in death by a son,
.                                Joseph Edward, his parents, Eddie and Ada Goad, and a brother, Glen Goad.  He will be lovingly remembered and
.                                missed by his wife of 61 years, Magdalene; two daughters and their husbands, Wanda and Bobby Combs, Susan and
.                                Tony Brown; four grandchildren, Abby Combs, Alex Combs, Maggie Brown Lance and her husband Abram, Molly
.                                Brown and her friend Matt Willie; a brother, Clyde Goad; a sister, Lena Nolen; cousins, Bobby Ayers, Roger Goad
.                                and Paul Goad; sister-in-law and husband, Edna and James Agnew; numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives; his
.                                church family and other friends.  Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at New
.                                Haven Baptist Church with the Reverend John Chambers, the Reverend Leon Wood, and the Reverend Murray Agee
