Dorothy Gooding

DENVER -- Bulk vending industry pioneer Dorothy Goodding died on Nov. 27. She was 86.

The longtime member of the National Bulk Vendors Association founded McCathren Vending, with her husband Tim, in 1964. Headquartered in Denver, the company eventually grew to cover parts of Wyoming, Nebraska, New Mexico and Kansas. She continued to run the business after Tim's death in 1994, and sold it to Sugarloaf Creations in 1998.

Goodding is survived by her daughter, Shirley Turnquist, two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. The Goodding family extends its gratitude to the bulk vending industry for its support and sympathy, and thanks A&A Global Industries, Cardinal Distributing, Oak Manufacturing, Northwestern Corp. and Peter Parisi.
