    Back in the early 2000s he stopped in at the Walmart in Hazlehurst MS and went to the radio grill there inside the store. I was looking down trying to get money out of my pocket when I heard him place his order and knew that voice instantly. I was right behind him and remembering how tall he is and I tried so hard to peak around the side to get a better glimpse of him but failed. I didn't want to look crazy. I never said anything to him because I respected his privacy. I wanted to tell him I really enjoyed watching him every week on Rosanne. I would pretend he was my dad. He was the coolest to me. Always loved his sense of humor on that show. He left an impression on me and I wanted to thank him for that. I watched as the people in the store recognized him and surrounded him. They followed him all the way to his white suburban with a Louisiana license plate without causing a scene. It was crazy. I just couldn't do that to someone. Anyway Thank You John for being a good dad and role model back then. We ❤️ you! Who knows now might see him in Muscle Shoals AL one day.

    One of the greatest line s John ever spoke was in the Monuments Men. Matt Damon telling the men they should clear out after he stepped on landmine. John Goodman. I'm ok where I am. The sincerity of that line was so John goodman.

    He was brilliant starring alongside Richard Dreyfus in the film “Always”. That one scene where he was driven back to base after being water bombed by a rookie pilot on a dummy run, just watching him taking off his sunglasses whilst covered completely in red fire retardant liquid chemical will be the most iconic memory of the actor for me
