Steven (Goodie) Goodijohn

July 19, 1958 - Aug 6, 2019

Goodie was known to not like goodbyes and would sneak out quietly, so when his work was done on earth we expected nothing less. He passed away in a place he loved most, the Sturgis Rally, Sturgis S.D.

His celebration of life was held in Omaha NE with family and friends sharing memories.

Goodie loved and lived life BIG and never took a day for granted. He’ll be remembered for his jokester and prankster personality, his warm smile and big laugh, but most importantly his huge heart. He turned his back on no one. He was loved by everyone and if you were lucky enough to have met him, he considered you a good buddy or friend for life.

He was always excited to get back up north to see family and friends. He cherished his times there when gathering at the lake, fishing, hunting and storytelling. There was always laughter when he was around and he will be deeply missed.

Steve is survived by his love and soulmate Jill Henderson, and her family of Omaha NE; his 2 children: Abby (Brandon), their children Owen, Mia and Tripp; Michael (Lexi), 2 step children, Jason and Kendra and their children; father Jerry Rydell of Wahpeton ND; brother, Greg (Kathy) Goodijohn of Ottertail MN, their children Michael (Emily) and Matthew; sisters: Kris (Jack) Braun Wahpeton ND, their children Jordan (Tia), Brittney (Ethan), and Morgan; Kay (RJ) Lick of Rosholt SD, their children Luke and Jennifer (Mike).

Steve was proceeded in death by his mother, Cathy (O’Keefe) Rydell, grandparents, and several aunts and uncles.
