|George L. Goodwin, 78, of California, Maryland died April 27, 2013 at Hospice House of St. Mary's. Born in Oxon Hill, Maryland on July 1, 1934 he was the son of the late William Henry and Eva Tennyson Goodwin.|
He graduated from Great Mills High School and was honorably discharged from the U. S. Army. He worked for the Lexington Park Dry Cleaners and Sealtest Dairy. He worked for over 30 years at Steuart's Petroleum in Piney Point, Maryland where he was hired as a laborer and advanced to the position of Personnel Manager of the Transportation Branch of Steuarts. After his retirement from Steuarts he worked for the St, Mary's County Health Department (Transportation) where he enjoyed transporting patients to and from their appointments at various medical facilities.
His favorite activities included his annual flight to Kathleen, Georgia to spend time with his son Michael and his wife Gemma. After a scrumptious breakfast served by Gemma they would head out to sightsee or just hang out at home with Doberman, Deuce. He seldom missed his Sunday cookout with his son-in-law Tom and stepdaughter Donna and the grandchildren. They barbecued George's favorite foods while cheering on the Redskins or Baltimore Orioles. He loved dining out with his wife especially when they were joined by their best friends. Knowing a competitive game of pitch would follow he always predicted the men would win that night. He liked traveling to Lakeland with his wife to visit sister-in-law Dot (Pat) and Terry and Mark, especially the free breakfasts and dinners at Marks "Fat Jack's Restaurant". His bichon frise was always at his side whether it was walking through the neighborhood with friends, cleaning his vehicles or watching Monday night wrestling.

He is also survived by his son, Michael Todd (Gemma) Goodwin and stepchildren Brian Johnson, Donna (Tom) Johnson, Pam (Donnie) Johnson and Joey (Rick) Johnson.
