Don Wayne Goodrich was born on his grandparents farm east of Marlow, Oklahoma on June 11, 1929. He was welcomed into the family by his parents, Gertie (Byrd) Goodrich and Kenneth Dale Goodrich. He attended school in Marlow graduating with the Class of 1947. Don could tell many tales of his participation in track, football and basketball. He served in the United States Air Force from 1950 to 1954. Don was stationed on Iwo Jima and at Tyndall Base in Florida. Returning to Marlow, he worked at Halliburton.

In 1957, he was employed by Security Rock Bits of Dresser Industries, spending time in Duncan, Oklahoma, Pampa, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Retiring in 1985, Don returned to the farm where he was born to raise cattle and enjoy the country life by fishing, playing golf and bird watching. He and Gwen spent many trips traveling the United States and Europe.
