Roy Simon Goodine
It is with great sadness that the family of Roy Goodine of Bear Island, NB, announces his passing on September 23, 2020 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital, Fredericton. He was 76 years old. Born in Bear Island NB, he was the son of the late Gerald and Moncia (McGrath) Goodine.
Roy will be deeply missed by his wife of 56 years, Priscilla (Clark); his children Chris, Stephen (Stacey), Pam (Brett) Vanhorne; grandchildren, Mindi (Tyrel), Chelsay, Brandon (Melissa), Brody, Bradley and Jack; step grandchildren Kyle and Alicia VanHorne; great‐grandchildren, Westin and Orrin; brothers, Edward, Pat and Mike; sisters, Joyce Brown and Hattie (John) Stickles, stepbrother Daniel St. Louis as well as several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his stepmother, Anna St. Louis (Goodine); brothers, Kenneth, and Albert; sister, Mary Moffatt; sister‐in‐law, Paulette Goodine, and brother‐in‐law George Brown.
Roy, along with his brothers Edward and Mike, was the owner of Goodine’s Farm in Bear Island. He carried on the family poultry, beef and dairy farm along with his sons and their families. He was a long‐ time vendor of the Boyce Farmers Market and delivered eggs each week where he loved to chat with all his customers. His lifelong passions were showing Hereford Cattle and racing horses. He was a member of the Canadian and Maritime Hereford Association, Fredericton Horsemen’s Association, and a former member of the Board of Directors of Fredericton Exhibition Ltd.
He was an extremely proud and hardworking father and beloved husband. He loved attending his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events. Roy was known for his dry sense of humour and how he loved to tease. He will always be remembered for the great, kind, and gentle man he was.
His family is grateful for the wonderful care he received over the course of his stay at the DECH.
