Obituary for Stanley Goodfellow

Stanley  Goodfellow
In Loving Memory of
Stanley Goodfellow
January 2, 1930 - December 9, 2017

The family announces with sadness his passing on Saturday December 9, 2017, at South Centennial Manor in Iroquois Falls.

Stan is survived by his wife Marie (nee Wilson), his daughter Gail (David) McQueen of Barrie, grandchildren, Sean (Valerie) McQueen of Peterborough, Sheila McQueen (Tyler Battle) of Victoria B.C., Brendan (Laura) McQueen of Cobourg and great grandchildren Audra, Cadence, Emett and Eleanor.

He was predeceased by his parents Percy and Clara Goodfellow and his brothers Kenneth, Lester and Clifford.

Stan lived his whole life in Iroquois Falls. In his youth, he displayed great athletic ability and was actively involved in many high school sports. At the age of 17, despite only having one pair of very primitive skis, he won the Northeastern Ontario Junior Ski Championship in North Bay, for combined cross-country and downhill skiing.

Stan worked for many years at the Abitibi Power and Paper Mill in Iroquois Falls, first in the office, then as a millwright and eventually Mechanical Superintendent. For a time, he also held the position of company diver. In this position he traveled to the different mills, assessing and fixing underwater problems at the company hydro dams.

Over his lifetime, Stan always considered it very important to help other people. He was a volunteer fireman for 45 years and a regular blood donor for over fifty years.

Stan held a great respect for the the wilderness and nature and in his younger days, when he wasn't at the cottage nurturing his huge garden, his spare time was often spent in the the bush (hunting, fishing or trapping). One of his fondest outdoor expeditions was the canoe trip he made up the Missinaibi River from Mattice to Moosonee.

In later years, he was happy to introduce his grandchildren to the outdoors and enjoyed many walks and fishing trips with them.

On reflection, Stan heartily admitted that he had lived a full life. He loved to reminisce about those good old days. Whether it was to his family, friends, or to the guys at the pub, he was always prepared to recount a good tale from the past. His quick wit and sense of humour, often combined with a little bit of mischief made those stories all the more enjoyable. We will miss him.

In keeping with his wishes, cremation has already taken place. The family plans to have a private memorial service in the Spring. In lieu of flowers, donations in memoriam to the Alzheimer's Society, Iroquois Falls Access Transit or to the South Centennial Manor Rehabilitation Fund would be appreciated. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Abitibi Funeral Services (705-258-4077).
