Ed was born in St. Johnsbury, VT, on April 6, 1953, son to the late Donald and Hazel (Amidon) Goodwin. He grew up in Sutton where he went to school and graduated from Lyndon Institute in the Class of 1971. Three years later he married his sweetheart, Pauline (Pierce) and then shared the next 47 years. They eventually made their home in W. Burke which he helped to build, and later put those same skills to use assist both his sisters, Sandra, in building her home and later in remodeling Sharon’s home. Ed worked as a machinist for Northeast Tool and later as custodian for Lyndon Institute and North Country Union High School. Edward and Pauline enjoyed taking the pop-up camper over the years as the kids were growing up. They traveled across Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and to New York where Ausable Chasms was a big favorite. He enjoyed woodworking, hunting and fishing, especially Lake Willoughby, which was a prime spot for Ed. Mostly he just enjoyed spending time with his family. That’s where his heart was.
