Donald F. Goodwin

RAYMOND — Donald F. Goodwin, 65, of Raymond, died on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 13, 2014, at Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice House in Auburn surrounded by his three children.

He was born in Winchester, Mass., on March 30, 1948, the son of Kenneth M. Goodwin and Regina (Keenan) Goodwin. He grew up in Winchester, graduating from Winchester High School, Class of 1966.

In his earlier years, he loved to be out on the water on his stinkpot boat and later in life enjoyed a good game of blackjack at the casinos. He also had a talent for designing and building things around the house. One of his most prized achievements was the addition he built at the family home in Arundel.

Don was a successful man in all respects that were important to him. In 1969, he began a 25-year career in sales as a food broker, spending most of this time at Pezrow. He was then a salesman for Better Bags for close to 10 years. His long rewarding career in sales allowed him to travel the world with his loving wife of 33 years, Andrina, who preceded him in death. Don was a compassionate and loving father, grandfather, companion and friend to many. He will always be remembered for his kindness, laughter, telling of jokes, but most of all for his contagious smile.

In addition to his parents, Donald was predeceased by his wife, Andrina (Ferranti) Goodwin; his brother, Kenneth M. Goodwin Jr.; and his sister, Joan Cheesebro.

He is survived by his partner, Katherine Stephens of Raymond; two sons, Ken Goodwin of Oxnard, Calif. and Keith Goodwin of Phoenix, Ariz.; his daughter, Kelly Goodwin of New Gloucester; four grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Visiting hours were held on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014, at Bibber Memorial Chapel, 67 Summer Street, Kennebunk. A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, at 11 a.m., at Holy Spirit Parish/St. Martha’s Church, 30 Portland Road, Kennebunk. Spring burial in Hope Cemetery, Kennebunk.

Arrangements are in care of Bibber Memorial Chapel, Kennebunk.

Should friends choose, memorial donations may be made in his memory to Andrina Goodwin Foundation (www.supportagf.org).
