Christopher Goodman, 48, of Belleville, IL, born June 26, 1973, in Tecumeseh, MI, died Sunday, January 9, 2022, at Swansea Rehabilitation & Health Care Center, Swansea, IL.

He was a self-employed home improvement worker and worked part time at Goodwill. He helped with special events at S.A.V.E, Inc. and enjoyed hanging out with the clients. Chris grew up in Michigan and moved to Illinois in 1985. He loved the outdoors and lived close to Bicentennial Park where he enjoyed riding his bike around the lake and helping his mom feed the geese. Chris also liked to fish, but he never caught anything LOL. Family was very important to Chris, and he enjoyed family BBQ’s, games, and playing on the water slides with his great-nieces and nephews. He will be dearly missed.

He was preceded in death by his father, Robert “Bob” C. Goodman, Sr.; his grandparents, Forrest and Virginia Leoty and Loretta Quisenberry; and a niece, Haley Goodman.

Surviving are his mother and step father, Carol and Hans Schwan; two brothers, Bob (Roxanne) Goodman and Scott (Tammy) Goodman; a sister, Angela (David) Johnson; and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to special thanks to Hospice of Southern Illinois and to Swansea Rehab & Health Care Center for the excellent care given to Chris.

Memorials may be made to Hospice of Southern Illinois, to S.AV.E, Inc., or to the charity of the donor’s choice. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at
