Raymond Lee Godden

Passed: November 23, 2015


Raymond Lee Godden, 50, of Goodyear, AZ passed away suddenly on November 23, 2015.   Raymond was born in York, PA to Howard Godden and Gloria McMaster.  In 1983 he graduated from York County Area Vocational-Technical School with a degree in Diesel Technology.  He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1983 – 1988.  In 1990 Raymond met Tammy Ettinger.  Their friendship grew and they were married December 26, 1993.

Raymond worked for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections from 1989 until retirement in May, 2014 reaching the rank of Sergeant.   He moved to Goodyear, AZ in August, 2014 and worked in security for  the Phoenix International Raceway and Cardinal Stadium.

Raymond is survived by his wife, Tammy of Goodyear, AZ, a brother, Howard Robert Godden, Jr. of Emporium, PA, mother Gloria Godden of York, PA.,  four children, Ujena Godden, Tanner Godden, Alexis Godden, and Hailey Godden and one grandchild Jordan Shaffer all of Goodyear, AZ.

Raymond had the remarkable ability to understand the needs of others.  Whether it was extending a helping hand or throwing a tattoo party, his friends were an important part of his life.  It was the simple things that brought him joy; a new tattoo, riding down the road on a motorcycle, Raven’s football, a cold beer, a good friend and a hot fire.
