Vincent Lee Goodwin, 61, of Roy, Utah died Monday, June 19, 2023, at Ogden Regional Hospital after a short illness.
Vince was born at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines, December 29, 1961. He was married to the love of his life, Ellen, for 38 years. Together they shared the love of three 4 legged fur babies; Littlebit, TedEBear and Rocky.
Vince worked for the Department of Defense for 28 years, and after retiring in 2016, spent much of his free time on the golf course. As hard as he tried, he could not out drive his mother-in-law, who by way, was in her late 80's.
