Good went on to publish a book entitled “Bikes, Camera, Action”, which detailed his work over a 50-year period. Among those pictures in there were shots of Fausto Coppi’s visit to the Isle of Man in 1959.
“His home was like one big library and photographer studio,” added his long-term friend James Williams.
Good’s funeral will take place on Monday (December 8) at 2pm at the Parish Church of St Mary’s, Marshfield, Cardiff, Newport, CF3 2UF.
Here, CW remembers Good by publishing some of his best work in tribute to the well-respected photographer.
