Tom Barry Goodwin

May 27, 1946 – March 14, 2015

It is with heavy hearts that we advise you of Tom’s passing at St. Joseph’s Hospital; he is at peace now after many years of struggle with his health.

Tom was born and raised in New Jersey, USA but lived in Courtenay the past 15 plus years. He worked in many fields, most recently as an advocate for the disabled re-entering the workforce in our community.

He is survived by his daughter Tessa who he was so proud of.

Tom was a keen walker and could be seen throughout the community most days when he was able. He loved animals and readily cared for them. Tom was a gregarious story-teller who enjoyed cooking, baking and entertaining his friends with his quick wit and detailed recollections. His flair for drama and exuberance will long be remembered by all.

Sincere thanks go out to all Tom’s medical team and friends who have been there for him in many ways through these last difficult years; he was grateful for your help and support.
