Randy Silas Heath

April 28, 1949 — May 10, 2016

Randy Silas Heath was born to Howard Carter Heath and Ruth Leverne Seeley Heath on April 28, 1949, in Bloomington, IN.

Randy grew up in the small town of Harrodsburg, where he attended elementary school and Jr. High at the Old Harrodsburg School, then Smithville High School. He was in choir and plays growing up. He liked creating skits and designing the costumes.

His greatest passion was art.

He graduated from Valencia Jr. College in Orlando, Fla. He then went to the University of Southern Florida for his BA, and later to IU for his Master’s, in Art of course.

Education was always very important to him and he wanted his nephews and nieces to further their education. After graduating, Randy and his cousin Dan traveled to Europe and they had stories. Randy loved to travel to meet people and always made friends along the way.

Randy was a member of the Church of Christ at Harrodsburg for about 50 years where for some years he would address the congregation and lead songs.

Randy taught in Lawrence County at Heltonville, Fayetteville, Dollens, Oolitic, Stalker, and Parkview schools in his years as a traveling teacher. He truly loved teaching the children. He wanted each child to learn to express themselves through all forms of art, film, cloth, clay metal and paint. He taught how important art is in our every day lives.

Randy, or Silas as many knew him, owned many floral and gift shops, another passion. To create a vignette that told a story and made you want to buy everything displayed. His mind was always working to create something from a seemingly useless item, even days before he passed.

As his arthritis worsened he created and altered books and pictures, also the most beautiful greeting cards.

Randy loved Paris and wanted to go back there. Finding all things French most beautiful. He enjoyed the slow and beautiful ways of the South and the Southern styles. We planned a theme birthday for him, but he became to ill to come. “I’d rather be in Paris.”

Randy loved to see ladies in hats, so if someone feels like wearing one to viewing or services please do so, or a French Knot.

Randy loved his nieces and nephews beyond measure and the great ones as well: Ashton Brooke Duff, Chevelle Knight Gracie Long, Calli Pope, Jameson Pope, Colton and Conner Pope, Gavin, Brayden Robinson, Zayne Dwigans. His love for family was great although health issues kept him from always participating.

He was my confidante, the one who told me when I was out of line. Randy never meet a stranger and loved talking and deep discussion. He has gone to be with his parents and grandparents and niece Yvonne whom he enjoyed taking places as a child.

Randy is survived by sisters Sally (Ernie) Livingston, Melody (Rick) Pope; nephews Jason (Robin) Pope, Mathew (Tiffanie) Pope, Cody ( Shelli) Pope, Carrie (Tony) Knight, Tonya (Phillip) Long; cousins Dan & Amy Glover, John & Amy Love, Larry & (Janie) Heath; Great Uncle Robert Carter.

Doris Marie (Skinner) Kittle Kamp, born July 11, 1922, died Tuesday, April 26, 2016, at age 93 at home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Doris, a resident of Mitchell from 1962 to 1973, was a Girl Scout leader, a Red Cross swimming instructor, a Tri Kappa member and registered nurse at Dunn Memorial Hospital, before moving to Peoria, Ill.

She was a champion teenage swimmer who would have qualified for the 1940 Olympic Games had they been played. She gave up on grad school at age 22 to care for her ailing mother.

She was a registered nurse for 45 years, starting at St. John’s (Mercy) Hospital in St. Louis, where she received her nursing diploma.

Doris, who loved both cats and dogs, was sharp-witted to the end, a fighter with a tart sense of humor and a ready story.

She was married twice, to William W. Kittle, who died in 1989, and Harlan Kamp, who died in 1987.

She is survived by six children, Ann Kamp of Salt Lake City, Bill (Beverly) Kittle of Dripping Springs, Texas, Mary Jean (Mike) Enge of San Diego, Calif., Kristina (Tracy) Usry of King George, Va., Thomas (Margie) Kittle-Kamp of Chicago, and Donna (Joel) Engelhardt, with whom she lived and helped raise David and Emily, two of her 10 grandchildren.

Dennis L. ‘Denny’ Goodman

Nov. 19, 1945 — April 29, 2016

Dennis “Denny” Lane Goodman, 70, of Bedford, died at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 29, 2016, at the IU Health Hospice House.

Born Nov. 19, 1945, in Lawrence County, he was the son of Rusty and Phyllis Kay (Bridwell) Goodman. He married Marilyn South in August of 1980 and she survives.

He retired from General Motors Powertrain as a tool and die maker.

He was a member of the Harrodsburg Assembly of God Church, the UAW, and the Sons of the American Legion.

Denny loved his family dearly and spoiled his grandkids to no end. Never meeting a stranger, he had many acquaintances and was lucky enough to have a few close friends he loved dearly. He loved to hunt, particularly deer and was an avid fisherman. He loved golf, and Marilyn believes he was born with a club in his hands. Denny made every moment precious at the Hospice House, that we were blessed to share with him. He brought so much joy and laughter to every person that came to visit. He welcomed each and every one with a smile, and never tired of them. His family was told by many that they came to lift his spirits up, but were the ones who left with their spirits lifted instead. Denny passed with much grace.

Survivors include his wife Marilyn of Bedford; five children, Heather Goodman of Texas, Hope Goodman of Texas, Tammy Bartlett of Bedford, Kelly Powell and her husband Scott of Mauckport, and Alan Level of Bedford; 11 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and sisters, Dianne Anderson of Spencer and Shona Turpin of Bloomington.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and one brother, David Goodman.

Funeral service will be conducted at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3, in the Elmwood Chapel of the Day & Carter Mortuary with Pastor Mike Winters officiating. At Denny’s request cremation will follow.

Visitation will be from 2-5 p.m. on Tuesday.
