Rochester NY: Phillip John Goodnough, age 86 and an 85 year resident on Skinner Hill Road in Moravia, New York, went home to be with his Lord on April 7, 2016. He was born on February 7, 1930 in Moravia, the son of Leo and Harriet Goodnough. Phil received Jesus as his Savior at a Percy Crawford evangelism rally as a young man. Phil married Nancy Carolyn Stoker on December 24, 1951. His life work included delivering milk door to door and making ice cream for Van’s Dairy in Moravia, and working as a batch man and driver for Cortland Ready Mix from which he retired in 1991.
