Dear Robin and Family Please accept our most sincere condolences on the loss of Goodie. We know you and your family will miss him dearly; he was such a great guy to work with at the Tracking Station. I worked with Goodie after arriving as the New Hampshire Tracking Station in 1968. Goodie exemplified the most dedicated effort in performing his part of the mission at the Tracking Station. I only wish that everyone in the community could recognize Goodie for what a fine Patriot, Husband, Father and Friend to all of us he truly was. Due to the nature of the work that Goodie was involved in, very few people actually knew what he did at his job. I can say from experience the people who worked with him really appreciated his presence and Cheerful smile. Goodie was one of the original Defenders of America’s Freedom during his service in the aerospace industry.

No matter how much time has gone by in your lives, you just never expect someone you know to pass away. My deepest sympathies to you all, and know that Goodie will be remembered by all his friends.
