Earl Edward Goodwin Jr.

January 1, 1951 — March 26, 2013

Earl Edward Goodwin Jr, "Buzz", fell asleep in death at the age of 62 on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 with his wife and family by his side. Buzz maintained his integrity throughout his brave two and a half year battle with cancer.

Buzz is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Suzanne Goodwin (Wisconsin), who filled the last 13-plus years with abundant love, care, joy and faith. Buzz is also survived by his parents, Earl E. and Dorothy Jean Goodwin, sister Cindy (Erich) Smith, of Dallas, TX, brother Kenneth (Kathy) of upstate, NY, brother Paul (Liz) of Essex, CT, son, Jesse of Norwich, CT, and in-laws of Ohio. Buzz also had a multitude of spiritual brothers and sisters, and friends all over the country and the world.

Buzz was born on January 1, 1951, in Lynn, MA. He developed a love for music very early in his life and cultivated extraordinary talent in many aspects of music. Buzz was a passionate guitarist on his own and in several bands, including Silverado. He was also a gifted songwriter and collaborator, plus well known and respected in the professional audio industry.

Buzz dedicated his life to Jehovah God, and was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in Amherst, MA. Suzy is also one of Jehovah's Witnesses and they were united as 'one flesh' in marriage on May 5, 2001. Buzz and Suzy happily enjoyed their life together in New Hampshire, Utah, California and Wisconsin, serving Jehovah wherever they went.

Buzz encouraged and helped many people and touched many hearts in his life, and always took a personal interest in each one he met and treated them with respect. His energy was boundless, and his friendliness and engaging personality made everyone feel welcome.

His love for Jehovah and appreciation for His creation, for His son, coupled with Jesus Christ's example and sacrifice, were evident in Buzz's daily life.
Buzz will be missed by his family, spiritual brothers and sisters, friends and all who knew him, and especially by his wife, Suzy, whom he cherished.

There will be a Memorial Service for Buzz on Friday, March 29, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, at 542 N Pleasant View Rd, Middleton, WI 53562. Visitation will begin at 2pm, with a Memorial Talk at 3pm. Following the talk there will be refreshments at the Town of Cross Plains Community Center, located at 3734 County Trunk P, in Pine Bluff.
