Hon. Frederick Goode
Hon. Frederick Goode, 76, a NH Superior Court justice from 1975-1995, died April 22, 2007, in Melbourne, Fla.
A Manchester native, Goode attended the Tilton School, and received his undergraduate degree from Renselaer Polytechnic Institute. He earned his law degree from the American University Law School and joined the NH Bar in 1963. Goode also served in the U.S. Army for three years.
During law school, he worked in the U.S. Patent Office and later in the patent division of the Department of the Army. Goode later returned to Manchester where he practiced in his own law office until he became chief of staff for Gov. Meldrim Thompson.
According to an obituary in the Union Leader of April 27, 2007, he is remembered as a man who took great pride in the thoroughness with which he did his work, giving each case careful due diligence.
Goode is survived by his wife of 53 years, Yvonne Van Wagner Goode; his daughters, Lisa Preston and Linda Scott; four grandchildren; and his brother John Goode of Meredith.
