He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who loved listening to his stories about his life.  


He is survived by his wife of 68 years Mariel S. Goodwin, his sons; Ralph E. Goodwin and his wife Cheryl of Ogdensburg and Wayne A. Goodwin and his wife Juliette of North Carolina.  He is also survived by his grandchildren; Renata Sheehan and her husband Jesse of Morristown and Shawna Hudak and her husband Greg of Tupper Lake.  Eight great-grandchildren,  many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive him.


He was predeceased by his siblings; Helene Palmer, Phyllis Preston, Mary Marguerite Henderson, Harriet Barley, and Richard “Junior” Goodwin.

It is difficult to lose loved ones, but the knowledge that we will be reunited in heaven gives us comfort. I have many wonderful memories of times together, most often the "grown ups" playing pitch on Saturday nights, or spending time together at the camps. I can picture Uncle Earle & my dad enjoying each other's company, possibly working on a wood project with our Lord, without the possibility of rapping a thumb with a hammer!! Talk about heaven!! You are loved, Uncle Earle.
