Gooding, of Bluefield and Snowshoe Mountain, lived life, fought cancer and ascended to our Lord on the Winter Solstice, Wednesday, December 21, 2011, from the Bowers Hos- pice House in the heart of West Virginia. He served the mountain state at Snowshoe and Win- terplace ski resorts for 30 years with the National Ski Patrol, saving traumatized skiers and winning medals on the snowy slopes that were truly his home. He leaves behind a daughter, as- piring to ski and achieve, Grace Campbell Gooding, 13, of Bluefield, and a host of brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends. He was born July 23, 1952, at Middlesboro, Ken- tucky, brother of a tusseling brood. His folks moved the family to Huntington in 1953, Johnstown, Pennsyl- vania, in 1961, and in 1964 to Harlan, Kentucky, where Jeff was a member of the Harlan County Boys Choir. After four years in Kentucky the Gooding family moved to Bluefield and roots grew. Jeff graduated from Blue- field High School in 1972, attended West Virginia Uni- versity and began Resort Hot Tubs and Spa Emporium atop Snowshoe Mountain in 1979. He rode horses, motor bikes and river rapids and back-packed into the woods, emerging to appear in the John Sayles' movie "Mate- wan" and establish J. R. Gooding Construction Com- pany. "Tourist and proud of it" was his motto in cities. He often retired to deserted, fire- lit places he filled with fun. Jeff was a harmonica player and champion of the el' time mountain music he loved to call "Americana." At the fu- neral of old friend, Richard "Dickey" Bailey, Jeff sat through the gospel selections in the church and said he'd never heard Dickey play those songs. "Freebird," by Lynyrd Skynyrd, promptly played. Jeff was a philosopher from the backwoods, where the more friends you make, the more wisdom you have. As his comrades from the ski patrol came to say goodbye at the Bowers House, they left with a refrain for believ- ers: "See you on the slopes." Jeff believed in the sign on his barn: "All Trails Merge." He was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn J. and Caroline "Scoots" Gooding. In addition to his daughter, he is survived by three broth- ers, Fred Gooding, of Bowl- ing Green, Kentucky, Glenn J. Gooding, Jr., of Prescott, Arizona, and Jan Gooding, of Snowshoe; two sisters, Savilla Gooding, of Bran- don, Florida, and Panda Ben- ford, of Barboursville; and many nieces and nephews. He will be remembered and celebrated Friday, Janu- ary 6, 7 p.m. at St. Bernard's Chapel at Snowshoe Moun- tain. Memorials may be made to the Bowers Hospice House, 454 Cranberry Drive, Beckley, WV 25801-8560, 304-250-6040. Louise C. Lane Louise C. Lane, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother went to be with our Heavenly Father on Sunday, January 1,2012.
