We were notified that our dear friend Russell Goodwin sadly passed away in June 2019.
Russell was always a bit of a larrikin who loved to be in the thick of things whether playing UNO, bowls, footy tipping competitions or telling us his big fishing tales. One such tale was when he chatted up two young fishermen to give him some fish. We were then left to cook it!
He loved to go to the annual Camp Breakaway and led the charge on the daily walks. We think his favourite camp was in 2016 when we visited the Australian Reptile Park and Russell draped a snake around his neck and generally talked to the animals.
Russell had the backing of his wife Cheryl and their family to move to Queensland a couple of years ago.
The Goodwin family were at the Walk 4 Hope this year and we know Russell will be sadly missed.
Our sincere condolences to Russell’s family and wife Cheryl.
