Paul F.'s Story
Paul F. Goodwin, 78, passed away Nov. 14, surrounded by loved ones. An avid walker who was often seen making his way around town on foot, he will be remembered for his warm smile and love of family.
He was born in Salem, Mass., and previously ran “All Seasons Painting.” Two of his children -- Svend and Jennifer -- followed in his footsteps, and in later years he would work with both of them.
He was a member of the Moose Loyal Order of Salem and Salem AOH.
He loved to play poker, watch sports and try his luck at scratch tickets and Keno. He also could often be heard bragging about time with his children, whether he was going to a Patriot’s game with Svend or taking trips to the casinos with Jennifer.
He is survived by his wife, Kristine (Madsen) Goodwin of Salem; sons Svend Goodwin and his wife, Amanda Goodwin, Jarrett Goodwin, Paul F. Goodwin Jr.,Todd Kain, James Kain and his wife, Laurie Kain; and daughters Jennifer Brault and her fiancee, Wendi Joy Brenner, and Kalem Longo and her husband, Daniel. He also leaves behind five granddaughters, four grandsons and two great-grandsons.
He was preceded in death by four of his children: Aaron Goodwin, David Kain, Tracy Goodwin and Justin Goodwin.
All are welcome to a celebration of his life at the Moose Loyal Order, 50 Grove St. #218, Salem, MA 01970 on Thursday, Dec. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.
