Robert E. “Bobby” Good, 75, of Lititz, died Saturday, June 20, 2015, at United Zion Retirement Community, Lititz.

Born in Lancaster, he was the husband of Barb (Shriner) Good of Lititz; and the son of the late Menno and Anna (Eckman) Good.

Passionate about his business, Bobby was the owner and operator of Good’s Auto Service on East Main Street, Lititz, for 35 years before passing it to his son, Craig. He was immensely proud of his graduation from the Automotive Management Institute. He was the past president of the Lancaster County Chapter of the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Bobby was a well-known race car mechanic. Along with his wife, he was involved in drag racing, with a number of wins. He was also a fan of NASCAR.

Bobby loved the water, and especially enjoyed boating on the Bush River on the Chesapeake Bay. He owned many boats throughout his life, but his last, a speedboat, was his baby. Family get-togethers were always cherished. He was of the Methodist faith.

In addition to his wife of 41 years, he is survived by two sons: Craig R. Good and his wife Gwen of Lititz; and Kevin E. Good and his wife Bessie of Nottingham; two grandchildren: Austin J. and Alyssa R. Good, both of Lititz; a brother: Menno Good of Lansdale; two sisters: Anna Mae Huff of Tyrone and Mary Jane Hershey of East Petersburg; a number of nieces and nephews; and his cherished shiht-zu: Fuzzy.

Funeral services were held June 27 at Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home and Crematory, Lititz, with the Rev. Dr. Menno Good officiating. Burial was in Brickerville Lutheran Church cemetery.
