It is with sadness we announce the passing of Charles Alec Fraser Goodwin, age 90, of Lorneville, NS. Fraser passed away on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at All Saints Hospital, Springhill, NS.
Born in Lorneville, NS, he was a son of the late Victor and Emelyn (Chapman) Goodwin.
Fraser was a soft spoken, caring, helpful, dedicated family man and friend. He had many hobbies and projects always on the go; woodworking, gardening, and rebuilding antique cars to name a few.
He loved cars, especially his antique cars. He worked at Lounsbury Company Limited in Moncton for 41 years.
In his younger years he was on the board of the VON, an active church board member, and leader of Boy Scouts. He was a faithful visitor to his friends and family. In his retirement years Fraser and Arleen remodeled the Stuart homestead and operated the ‘Chat and Chew’ Bed and Breakfast together. They enjoyed guests from all over the world.
