Roger "Rocky" Dale Godwin

September 24, 1951January 31, 2018

Roger “Rocky” Dale Godwin, age 66 passed away in the early morning on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at his residence in Stanley, North Carolina.

Rocky was born in Charlotte, North Carolina where he lived most his life. He worked as a painter almost all his life and I promise, you could not keep up with him. When Rocky wasn’t at work he could be found “piddling” outside in the yard or garage. He was always there for friends and family and I cannot remember ever seeing him angry. Everyone who knew Rocky will only have good things to say about him if asked. Rocky will be missed terribly by his family and friends.

Those left to cherish Rocky’s memories and carry on his legacy are his precious mother Ruth Baucom and stepfather Boyce Baucom of Charlotte, North Carolina; his loving wife of 48 years, Sheila Williams Godwin of Stanley, North Carolina, two daughters Angie Cox and husband Kenny, Teresa Godwin and husband Jasper Gates; two grandsons Josh Thompson and Jeremy Thompson, one granddaughter Tiffannie Jordan and husband Trent; one great granddaughter: Khloe Jordan; two step sisters: Carol Pietras and Lynn Baucom.

Rocky was preceded in death by his sister Terry Godwin.

Carothers Funeral Home of Stanley is compassionately serving the Godwin family.
