“The number one cause of death is too many birthdays …”
Harry Lee Goodin, ladies’ man, motorcycle rider, crossword solver, Bible reader, and King Fisherman, born January 30, 1952, died Tuesday, September 28, 2021.
Harry learned to fish from his father, Clyde Carl Goodin (deceased). He passed this knowledge onto his children, Angela Goodin-Forouhar and Dwayne Lee Goodin (deceased) to teach them the valuable lesson of “being quiet” as opposed to survival. Every vacation was spent on the pier at Myrtle Beach, S.C., where he not only fished but made lifelong friends. The women in his life were numerous, including his mother Mary Lynn Beaver (deceased) who raised him after his father died but soon Harry married Glenda Kay Marlowe and raised his own family. Harry found happiness with his third wife (third times a charm), Joy Goble, who died on his birthday but who he dreamed about weeks before his death.
The last years of his life were spent with Janice Lynn Guinn, whom he loved dearly. Harry is survived by his brothers Ronnie and Jerry Goodin and his sister Brenda “Sissy” Swain, and his dog Misty, who is still searching for him in the house.
Harry was always quick to laugh and always had a joke to share. He was intelligent, thoughtful, big-hearted, and honest. He is greatly missed. There will be no funeral and instead a moment of silence to remember Harry Lee Goodin. God bless.
Troutman Funeral Home is serving the family.
