Albert William Goad, 78, of Ashland, passed away Thursday morning, May 14th, 2020, at his home.

He was born June 23rd, 1941 in Johnston City, Illinois to James William Goad and Olvetta May (Heyduck) Goad.

Albert attended Southern Illinois University, receiving his Masters of Fine Arts with a concentration in sculpture.

He was hired as an art professor at Ashland University in 1966, where he spent the next 36 years on AU’s faculty, serving the last 20 years as the Art Department Chair.

On July 15th, 1968 Albert wed Sherrill Stauffer of Ashland and they helped foster several children in Ashland County before starting a family of their own with two daughters; Anna and Mary.

Albert was an active member of Heritage Baptist Church and loved gardening, cooking, collecting recipes, his four grandchildren, and watching McGyver on Friday Nights.

Albert was known for being incredibly kind and upbeat, and having a very sharp wit and humor. Right up until his final days he was still beating everyone in his family at Kings in the Corner and Rummikub.

Albert is preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Jimmy Goad of Johnston City, Ill, Gene Goad of Johnston City, Ill., Jerry Goad of Herrin, Ill, and Brother-in-Law Larry Tooley of Centrailia, Illinois.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Sherrill (Stauffer) Goad, his Daughters Anna Goad of Mansfield and Mary (Ben) Roby of Ashland. Albert had four wonderful grandchildren, Patrick, Lexus, Nevaeh, and Silas. He also had one great-granddaughter Ember Johnson. Al is also survived by his sister, Sarah (Goad) Tooley of Centralia Illinois.

The family is planning a Celebration of Life service at Heritage Baptist in Ashland on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. with Reverend Ben Roby officiating. Interment will follow in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.

My condolences go out to the Goad family. Al was my kind and forgiving mentor in the art department during my undergraduate years at Ashland University.

I loved Al! We spent countless hours as colleagues when we were all in the Arts and Humanities Building. (Art and Foreign Languages shared an office and secretary.) It was a time before the internet enabled us to work anywhere else, and we enjoyed daily interaction -- before and after classes, at lunch, at events, etc. It was a special bonding time at Ashland College, now University. We enjoyed many social get-togethers over the years, too! The only thing I have against Al :) is that I'd have him go down to the gallery when the student exhibits opened and ask his advice about ones I was thinking about purchasing. He proceeded to point out all the flaws.... and I never did buy one :) Al was a talented, kind, generous man with a great sense of humor. My deepest sympathy go out to Sherrill, Anna, and Mary --- and all the extended family. I know he will be missed.

I am sorry to hear of Al’s passing. I knew him as a colleague at Ashland University and as a neighbor. Al always had a kind word for everyone and a gentle heart. He was a good grandparent also. His style of art was unique, and I treasure the one small piece that I bought from him.
