Reverend Robert Goodwin
We recently learned of the death of Father Robert Goodwin, on his 90th birthday, May 15, 2017.  Father Goodwin was a priest of the Diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire for nearly 60 years, where he served in parishes and high schools throughout the diocese until his retirement from full-time ministry in 1995.

From 1991 until 2011, Father Goodwin provided part-time seasonal assistance to St. Patrick Parish, Tampa, after which he returned to New Hampshire, where he resided until his death.  The parishioners of St. Patrick Parish fondly recall Father Goodwin’s kind manner and pleasant disposition.

He is survived by his nephew, Dr. Thomas Goodwin.  A Funeral Mass was held on Monday, May 22nd, at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, New London, New Hampshire.  Father Goodwin will be buried at Holy Angels Cemetery, in Westville, New Hampshire at a later date.

Please keep Father Goodwin’s surviving family member and loved ones in your kind thoughts and prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
