Virgil Goodwine Passes Away

Ohio Loses Another Judo Leader

Virgil Goodwine passed away this past Tuesday, April 24, 2018.  Details on his memorial service are listed below.  Virgil had been an accomplished national competitor and was coach of the Ohio State University Judo Club for many years.

  He was also active in promoting judo in Ohio and the Midwest, as a past President of Ohio Judo, Inc, as well as serving on its Promotion Board.  Known to many as a "gentle giant", Virgil was a good friend to many in our judo community.  His O Guruma using a double lapel grip was a sight to behold  He will be missed greatly by those who knew him, but each of us have been blessed by having known him.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his many friends.
