Longtime Resident of Pleasanton, California
Submitted by Graham-Hitch Mortuary
On August 1, 2019, at the age of 60, Mark Goodwin, son, brother and friend passed away peacefully in his sleep at his residence in Valley Springs, California. He was born October 13, 1958 in Portland, Oregon to Jerry and Viola Schenk Goodwin. He was the 2nd of four children. While Mark most recently resided in Valley Springs California where he lived with dear friends, many years were spent in Pleasanton, California where in 1977 he graduated from Amador Valley High School. Mark’s love of life was infectious as was his smile. He loved his family and his friends and he always made sure that they knew it. For the past 5 years, he struggled with a variety of health conditions which changed his life. Mark was a gifted athlete and his love of sports, particularly baseball, golfing, boating and fishing, kept him active for most of his life and it was devastating to him when his health declined and he was no longer able to play. He loved going to NASCAR races with his friends, was an avid Oakland Raiders fan and enjoyed building model cars and airplanes. He worked side by side with his father doing construction for several years until his father retired. Then Mark worked for Adam’s Pool Solutions in Pleasanton, California for many years where he maintained all the vehicles. He is survived by his mother, Viola Goodwin (Logan, UT); his sisters: Teresa Gilvear (Bill) of Kaysville, UT; Shelly Flanigan (Rod) of Sierra Vista, AZ; Allison Milne (Steve) of Logan, UT, and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Jerry Lee Goodwin, grandparents Clark and Alverta Goodwin, Viola Schenk, and Peter and Betty Schenk. Mark, may you finally be pain free and able to run and not be weary. You will always be loved and greatly missed by all. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to all of Mark’s friends in California for always being there for him. He considered all of you to be his second family. We would also like to express our thanks to Optimal Hospice Services for the help that was provided during the last couple of weeks of his life.
