Obituary Thomas A. Good, M.D.

A service for Thomas A. Good, M.D., 77, a Dayton resident, will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at FitzHenry's Chapel of Faith.

Dr. Good died June 24, 2002, at his home. He was born Feb. 8, 1925, in Atwater, Minn., to Ethel Whitcomb and Roy Herbert Good.

He graduated from Minneapolis, Minn., public schools and received a B.A., B.S., M.B. and doctorate of medicine in 1952.

Dr. Good taught and conducted research at the University of Utah Medical School, University of Maryland Medical School and the Medical College of Wisconsin. He then came to Northern Nevada to establish a practice in pediatrics with multiple sub specialties in infectious disease, endocrinology and metabolism, genetics, nephrology, juvenile rheumatology and developmental disorders. He retired in 1997 after 45 years of medical service.

He used his talents and compassion to care for the children of Carson City and the surrounding communities. He dedicated a majority of his time to helping children with special needs, both in his office and as the medical director for the Eagle Valley Children's Home for 20 years.

Along with medicine, horses and rowing were his passions. He bred, trained and rode mustangs into his early '70s and was an accomplished rower.
