William E. Goodwin
When he was young, Bill's family moved west, first to the Prescott area and later to St. Helens. He graduated from St. Helens High school and went on to serve in the U.S. Army.
Bill went on to work at the local paper mill where he retired after 41 years.
He enjoyed spending time with his family, fishing, hunting, gardening, and going to the casinos. He was a lifelong member of the St. Helens Elk Lodge #1999.
On March 4, 1955, he married Donna Lungberg and she survives him at home.
He is further survived by two sons, Bill of Rainier and Richard (Madeline) of St. Helens; and siblings, Laura Flynn of St. Helens, Ralph Goodwin of John Day, and Allan Goodwin of St. Helens. He is also survived by six grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Graveside services will be held Saturday January 18, at 3 p.m., at Bethany Cemetery in Warren with Pastor Steve Berry officiating.
