Arthur C. Goodwin

Oct 17, 1931 - Feb 22, 2024

location-icon

Seaford, DE

Arthur C. Goodwin entered the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ on 2/22/24 at the age of 92 after succumbing to his multi-year fight with cancer. Bud, as he was affectionately called, was born in San Antonio, TX, where his namesake was serving as a lieutenant in the US Army. His early years were spent in the Philippines after the army transferred his dad. Upon returning to the states in 1935, he later attended Baldwin High School in NY and then received a BS in Chemical Engineering in 1953 from Brooklyn Poly Tech, now part of NYU. Soon after graduation, he married his high school sweetheart, Martha Kennedy, to whom he was still married after 70 years at the time of his death. His employment with the DuPont company, which was from 1953 until 1989, was soon interrupted by Uncle Sam, who assigned him first to Fort Dix, NJ and then to the Aberdeen Testing Grounds in Maryland, where he remained until his discharge. Returning to DuPont, he restarted his career at the Repauno Works in Gibbstown, NJ, where he stayed until being transferred to Old Hickory outside Nashville, TN. Two years later, he was sent to the headquarters in Wilmington, DE, where he had assignments in numerous departments. His work tasks provided opportunities to travel to Europe, Japan, and South America, sometimes accompanied by his wife. Cherished international friendships remained throughout his life. A significant milestone in Bud’s life was when he came to “saving faith in Jesus Christ” in his early 50’s. Reading and studying the Scripture became a passion which was evident in the transformation of a good man to a devoted follower of his Savior Jesus Christ. After early retirement to Ocean View, DE he more fully pursued his passion of surf and jetty fishing from Montauk, Long Island, NY to the Outer Banks NC. Both he and Marty were active for many years in the Methodist churches’ Walk to Emmaus and Marriage Encounter. They were actively involved in both St George’s UMC in Clarksville, and Mariners-Bethel UMC in Ocean View. For many years, Bud led adult Bible studies and VBS for grades 5-6. After moving into the Manor House in Seaford, DE, they continued their faith walk with St. John’s UMC. He is survived by his wife, Marty, their four children: sons David (Denise), Kevin (Karen deceased), and daughters Karen (Bob), Laurie; five grandchildren, Matthew, Hannah, Sarah, Katie and Elliah and ten great grandchildren. Funeral Services will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 11:00 AM, with a public viewing from 10:00 to 11:00 AM at Cranston Funeral Home, 300 N Shipley Street, Seaford, DE. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Goodwin Family Scholarship Fund at Africa University, part of the United Methodist Church can be sent to Africa University Development Office, PO Box 340007, Nashville, TN 37203-0007. To to the family or in memory of Arthur C Goodwin, please
