Obituary for Frederick Joseph Goodwin

Goodwin, Frederick Joseph Age 88 U.S. Navy Veteran CFD

Born to Frederick John Goodwin and Julia Orlowski on January 9, 1928 in Chicago, Illinois passed gently into eternity on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 12:40 P.M. in Oak Creek, Wisconsin surrounded by family.
Frederick is survived by Julianne, his wife of 58 years and their four children: Therese Peterson, Susan Finlayson, Maureen Johnson and Frederick Goodwin as well as eleven grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Jean Gault and is survived by his sister Diane Schott.

Frederick was a constant, faithful and devoted husband and a protective and caring father to his four children. Friends, co-workers and acquaintances knew him as a kind, compassionate, generous and quiet man but having a quick and mischievous wit. He was a man of duty, honor, and service. Frederick served his country in WWII after enlisting in the United States Navy on his 17th birthday. He served in the Pacific Theatre as a mechanic aboard the USS Patuxent and USS Navastar. Upon his return home to Chicago from his last station in Alaska, he joined the Chicago Fire Department where he served as a Firefighter and Engineer for thirty-three years at various stations including the jet boats off Meigs Field in Lake Michigan, SS No. 1 and China Town. He was a long time member of the American Legion.

Fred was a quiet man of faith. He honored his creator by serving others with humility and unfailing devotion. Frederick had great appreciation and gratitude for the many blessings bestowed upon him from his country, community, family and friends.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Fred’s caregivers at the Elizabeth Residence of Oak Creek, Wisconsin for their compassionate care and kindnesses extended to Frederick and his family.
