Goodson, Raymond Herbert  
Raymond Herbert Goodson January 28, 1933 - March 19, 2017 Resident of Danville Raymond Herbert Goodson, resident of Danville, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 19. He was 84 years old. Ray was born on January 28, 1933, to Lucy and William Goodson in Elmore City, Oklahoma. The youngest of four, Ray worked on the farm as much as he could while his Dad's eyesight unfortunately failed. In hopes of treatment, they moved to California but the surgery was unsuccessful, so Ray worked as a dishwasher after school to help support his family, all while developing a love of reading that stayed with him throughout his life. After graduating from Tracy High School in 1951 Ray worked various odd jobs until enlisting in the Army and spent 2 years serving in Korea. He married Colleen Dougherty and raised five children, first in Tracy, then Pittsburg, Walnut Creek, and eventually in Danville. Because of his voracious appetite for books, Ray educated himself and got his first executive sales job in 1961 with Moore Business Forms. He discovered a natural ability for sales and eventually opened his own business in Walnut Creek called Active Business Forms. Ray has been described in many ways: brilliant, charming, funny, and most importantly to him, punctual. His favorite saying was "if you're five minutes early, you're ten minutes late!" He was an attentive father, never missing the important events of his children's lives, whether it was coaching his son's baseball team, chaperoning ski trips, attending cheerleading competitions, soccer games, choral concerts, swim meets, and just about anything else his kids were involved in. After turning over his business forms company to his son, also named Ray, he reinvented himself by becoming one of the leading land brokers in Northern California, which he eventually turned over to his son-in-law, Jim. Raymond had a powerful desire to be the best at everything he did, and he was the essence of a self taught, self made man who continued to work throughout his "retirement." Raymond met the love of his life, Cheryl Jo DeVaney (Cheri) whom he married in 1998. It was she who brought Christ into his life, and they were devoted and active members of Community Presbyterian Church. They were also devoted to each other, and he was never happier than when he was with his beloved "Cheri Jo." He is survived by his wife, Cheri, of Danville, by his children, Kathy Goodson of Yakima, Washington, Ray Goodson of Vacaville, (P.J) Colleen Brennan of San Ramon, (Jim) Michelle Goodson of Aliso Viejo, Danielle Goodson of Roseville, stepchildren Kindra Tatarsky of Mill Valley, (Glenn), Rob DeVaney of Mountain View, grandchildren Chase,(Tara) Michael, Taylor, and Jenna Goodson, Sean and Kelly Brennan, Brady and Kylie Tatarsky, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Andrew Goodson and Lester Goodson, and his beloved sister Margie Cox. Friends and family are invited to a celebration of his life which will be held Friday, March 24 at 4:00 at Community Presbyterian Church located at 222 West El Pintado in Danville, California, with a reception immediately following. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Alzheimer's Association ( alz.org/donate ). View the online memorial for Raymond Herbert Goodson

Keating, Maggie  
Maggie Keating Margaret Shearer Keating died in Greenbrae, CA on March 15, 2017, surrounded by family and dedicated caregivers. She will be remembered as an independent, creative and intellectually curious woman with an irreverent sense of humor, a taste for the unusual, and blazing red hair. Maggie was born on August 26, 1923, delivered by her country doctor grandfather outside of Houston. Her father was a General in the US Army, so she grew up all over the country and in Panama. She skipped ahead in school, graduating high school at 16. Ballroom dancing was a great love of her early life. At 18 in Panama during World War II, she donned an evening gown every night after work to go dancing. A reliable source has it that she was booked 3 weeks in advance for dates. Maggie moved to San Rafael in 1949 after marrying California State Senator Thomas F Keating. Later she became a photographer and artist, her work included in the collection of the SF Museum of Modern Art. Her honesty, strong work ethic and fearlessness are inspiring to this day. Maggie celebrated her 75th birthday by going sky-diving. Subsequent birth-days found her hang gliding, gliding, and sea kayaking. She firmly believed that you can be or do anything you put your mind to. Maggie was predeceased by brother Alfred Marston Shearer Jr, and husband of 35 years Thomas F Keating. She is survived by her 5 children: Tom (Norma) Keating of San Anselmo, Kathleen Keating of San Rafael, Rich (Kim) Keating of Novato, Jim Keating of Bishop, Suzy Keating (Jim Hackett) of Santa Cruz; 8 grandchildren: John (Sela) Keating, Katie Casey (Jason Yates), Lisa (Svilen) Dyakovski, Diana, Annie, Tommie, Scott and David Keating; 5 great-grandchildren, and her dear friend George Pelmear of Greenbrae, who was dedicated to her for over 5 years, until the very end. We wish Maggie love and light, and will hold her in our hearts forever.
