  • Notes 
    • MILTON ROY GOOD 1911 - 2008 Milton passed away, unexpectedly at K-W Health Centre of Grand River Hospital on Monday, March 3, 2008, in his 97th year. Milton Roy Good was born on June 20, 1911, on a small farm in Waterloo Township (now in the City of Waterloo) to Henry and Mary (Martin) Good. He was the third child and eldest son in a family of eight and is survived by his brother, Harold; and three sisters, Edna, Erma and Vera. In 1938 he married the late Verna I. Snider and had two sons, James (wife Eva) and John, and two grandsons, Thomas and James. After Verna's death in 1976, he married Eleanor (Young) High. Their marriage ended with the death of Eleanor in 2001. He is survived by his wife, Margaret (Brubacher) Good. In 1927 Milton joined the Royal Bank at the Waterloo branch and for twenty-one years served at several Ontario branches, resigning in 1948 to take on the position of Office Manager at the Kitchener firm of H. Boehmer and Company. In 1961 he became President and General Manager, seeing the firm through a period of substantial expansion until it was sold in 1973. At the age of eighteen, in 1929, he was appointed Treasurer of The Mennonite Mission Board of Ontario, a position he held for the next twenty-one years. In this office he became involved with many church agencies in Canada and the United States where he served as the first Board Chair of Mennonite Mutual Aid which he helped organize. In Canada, he was involved in establishing Conrad Grebel University College and was the first Chair of its Board of Governors. Milton Good was a member of the Board of J. M. Schneider Ltd. for a number of years. He was also President of the K-W Symphony. After retiring from active business in 1976 he became Chair of the Fundraising Committee for the Centre in the Square, successfully completing the financing of that project. In 1974 he established Good Foundation Inc., a private foundation that has supported many charities, mostly in the Waterloo region. In 1995 he was the guest of honour at the annual dinner sponsored by the Mayor of Kitchener, and in 1996 he was elected to the Waterloo County Hall of Fame. Relatives and friends are invited to share memories of Milton during visitation at the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home , 171 King Street South in Waterloo, on Friday, March 7 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service to celebrate Milton's life will be held at Erb Street Mennonite Church, 131 Erb Street West, Waterloo, on Saturday, March 8, 2008 at 11 a.m. with Rev.
