Gerard V. Goodwin


Franklin - Gerard Goodwin passed away peacefully at home on February 4, 2019, in Franklin, ME, at the age of 80, after a four-year battle with bone marrow cancer. Gerard was born on July 5, 1938, in Franklin, ME, to Vernon Goodwin and Marguerite (Burke) Goodwin.
He owned and operated Goodwin Trucking, Inc., for more than 50 years.
He is survived by his wife, Judy (Willey) Goodwin; his son, Rusty, his wife, Tammy and their daughter, Mikaela ,of Franklin; two stepdaughters, Elaine Wood of Jonesboro, and Cathy Kirschner and her husband, John, of Augusta; seven stepgranddaughters, and two great-stepgranddaughters.

Gerard had a passion for hunting, fishing and dancing. You could always find him at one of his favorite pond locations in the afternoon. Gerard had a clear vision for everything - right, wrong or indifferent, you knew where you stood.
Special thanks to all the wonderful caregivers that came in to his life during his illness.
A celebration of life will be in the spring.
