It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Frederick Robert Goodwin, 80, of Point de Bute, NB, at the Moncton Hospital on Sunday, December 3, 2023.  Fred was born in Point de Bute, a son of the late Norman and Christena (Dobson) Goodwin. 

Fred loved his family dearly.  He was kind and giving and always there to lend a helping hand.  He had a great sense of humour.  He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman.  He enjoyed playing the guitar and listening to country music, in particular, Merle Haggard.  He worked in the local area his entire life, starting at the Sackville Builders, followed by Thompson Brothers, FRS Flooring and finally was self employed up until his retirement.  He was very skilled and took great pride in his work.

Fred will be dearly missed by his wife, Jennifer (nee Price), Point de Bute; six children, Sylvia (Morgan) Langille, Hammonds Plains, NS, Noel (Maureen) Goodwin, Moncton, Todd Goodwin, Moncton, Debbie (Winston) Fury, Truro, Peter (Caitlin) Griffiths, Titusville, NB, Emma Griffiths, Saint John; eight grandchildren, Alyssa, Tyler, Jack, Lacey, Lennon, Gavin, Owen, and Malcolm; two sisters, Darlene Morris and Marion Fury, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Fred was predeceased by his sisters, Margaret Hicks and Doris Wheaton.

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville (506-364-1300).  Honouring Fred's wishes, cremation has taken place.  A graveside service for Fred will take place in the spring.

Donations in memory of Fred may be made to the Point de Bute Cemetery, the Sackville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary or a charity of the donor's choice.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the online memorial at or through the Jones Funeral Home Facebook Page.
