Jack was a painter by trade and lived in Pitt Street, Ringwood. He was evidently heavily involved in the Children's Hospital Auxiliary for many years.
Jack was involved with the Ringwood Cricket Club and appears in RDCA records on the 1927/28 Ringwood player list and he was the Ringwood club's delegate to the RDCA for many years. As a player he went on to represent the Association in a number of representative games.
Jack Goodall's relationship with the RDCA began before the Association was even 'born'. He was a member of the 'committee' that first met to create the Association and he was to go on and serve the Association in a number of ways over many years. He was elected to the Executive as the Assistant Secretary in 1930/31 and filled that position for 4 years. He was then elected as a Vice President in 1933/34, a position he was to retain until 1941/42. Jack was the Association's Assistant Treasurer from 1940/41 to 1943/44 and also served as a Selector from 1934/35 until 1941/42.
His contribution to the Association carried on long after he was awarded Life Membership. This prestigious award was presented at the 1930/31 Annual Ball in recognition of his 'services since inception' (to the Association).
The signature of Jack Goodall was taken from the RDCA Minute Book.
