Ray Goodgame

The Clermont Historical Society has not only lost a board member and former president, it has lost a true champion.  If Clermont really is “The Choice of Champions!” then we know why Ray chose to live in Clermont and to champion the causes he did, especially when it came to the Historic Village and Clermont’s heritage.  Ray served on the board of directors for more than 12 years and up to the time of his death.  During that time he also held the position of Vice-President, then stepped up to serve as President.

Those who knew Ray well will tell you that you couldn’t find a better, more vocal supporter of the causes he believed in.  He was not afraid to make his opinions known, even when they were unpopular.  He was not inclined to bend to peer pressure.  That is what made him such a powerful representative of the people and the causes he believed in.  His voice will be missed by his friends and supporters at Historical Society meetings as well as at City Council meetings.  God speed good friend.

 Ray, Thank You for All You Did

The Clermont Historical Society
