Karl Edmund Goodhouse ’77

Karl Edmund Goodhouse ’77, 57, of Oak Park, Ill., passed away peacefully at his home March 27, 2012. He had suffered over the past year from Glioblastoma brain cancer. He was born March 6, 1955, in Torrington, Conn., son of Gloria M. Goodhouse and the late Carl J. Goodhouse. He was an honors graduate of Davidson and served as president of the student union carrying out the responsibilities for coordinating and publicizing cultural programs at Davidson. A native of Litchfield, Conn., Goodhouse traveled south to college so he could play golf year-round, but, during his four years at Davidson, he stayed so involved in campus activities that he rarely ever found time to play even one round of golf. His work career began in public service as assistant public service and information officer for Mecklenburg County Government, Charlotte, N.C., and later being named editor of the Mecklenburg County Outlook newsletter. As he gravitated toward new interests, he found himself in a business he so dearly loved, the petroleum industry. Goodhouse, president of Clark Brands, LLC, a man of integrity and character, would ditto words from a longtime friend and business associate, “One important measure of a man is: Did we leave a footprint? Did we help others? Did we make a difference?” He was dedicated and passionate about his work, building with his co-workers a successful business. His passions extended beyond work with his love of music, gardening, the arts, writing, golf, and reading. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He had a love for poetry and an eye for pottery. He was a loving husband; one of his many quotes to his wife, “I love you from here to the moon and the stars and back again”, to his family and friends, “Have I told you how much I love you?” and, “Do you know how much I love you?” will never be forgotten. He will surely be missed. Surviving are his wife, Cynthia, 510 N East Ave., Oak Park, IL 60302; his daughter, Bridgette Mann; his grandson, Dustin; great-granddaughter, Faith; brother, Robert C. Goodhouse (Margaret); nephews, Andrew and Alex; Nancy A. Goodhouse, mother of nephews Alex and (godson) Andrew; and Oreo, the family cat, along with numerous family members and family friends, as well.
