Retired entrepreneur

George I. Goodson, a retired entrepreneur, died Sunday of respiratory failure at Howard County General Hospital.

The former Baltimore resident, who owned and managed rental properties and operated Goodson's Cleaners, was 88.

The Darlington, S.C., native received his education in schools there and worked for the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. in Winston-Salem, N.C., in the 1930s. He came to Baltimore in 1939 as a welder in the Maryland Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. yards in Fairfield, retiring in 1969. He also worked as a city sanitation worker for several years, retiring in 1969.

"He loved to work," said DeGloria Hall, a daughter who lives in Columbia. "That was his hobby. He enjoyed working on the six houses he rented and in the cleaners.

"Known as 'Daddy,' he found great joy in helping others in need and after retiring spent his spare time helping his neighbors and was always ready to provide assistance to the homeless, hungry and those in financial need," his daughter said.

He was a member of St. John the Baptist Church in Columbia, where he moved in 1975.

A wake is set for 10:30 a.m. Friday, followed by services at 11 a.m. at St. John and interment in Crestlawn Memorial Gardens.

He also is survived by his wife, the former Elizabeth McDaniels, whom he married in 1929; a son, Tyrone Williams of Woodlawn; two other daughters, Lenora Wilson of Columbia and Earlene M. Hammonds of Randallstown; and a brother, Issac Goodson of Winston-Salem.
