May 29, 1944 - August 31, 2021
Will Rogers Goodman was born May 29, 1944 in Tifton, Georgia to Elizabeth Goodman Rogers Jones and Van Brinkley. He attended school in Tift County and Eustis, Florida. Will accepted the Lord into his life at a very early age at Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church in Eustis, Florida. During his early years he was a farmer at Long and Scott Farms in Zellwood, Florida. As the years progressed he became an all around mechanical worker. His passion was working on cars and spending time with his family. He was very well known in the community and was a great supporter to all of his nephews and nieces. Will was a very giving person of his time to his family and friends. You can catch Will riding through the streets of Eustis, Florida on his big tractor. The Lord in His infinite wisdom saw fit to call our beloved Will to his eternal resting place on August 31, 2021. His departure is a deep and personal loss to his family and friends and he will be greatly missed by them all. Will was preceded in death by his parents, Elizabeth Goodman Rogers Jones and Van Brinkley; one sister, Florence Hubbard, six brothers, Albert Rogers, Curley Rogers, Leon Rogers, James Rogers, Otis Rogers and Joseph Brinkley; a best friend, Mr. Kaydell.

Dora, Florida and Ervin Grady of Tavares, Florida; seventeen grandchildren; one sister: Patricia Everson (James) of Tifton, Georgia; one brother: Timothy Rogers of Eustis, Florida; two sisters-in-law: Helen Ruth Rogers and Mary Rogers, both of Eustis, Florida; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and sorrowing friends.
