Obituary of Dennis Frederick Goodman
GOODMAN, Dennis Frederick April 29, 1932 - January 15, 2022 With great sadness we announce the passing of Dennis Goodman. Dennis was born in Winnipeg MB, where he graduated from the University of Manitoba. Dennis is predeceased by his brother Bob and his eldest son Roy. Dennis married the love of his life, Nancy Louise Marlatt; having two sons, Roy and John. But was soon admitted to hospital for what turned out to be a two year stay to survive Tuberculosis. Leaving the hospital, Dennis joined the Hudson’s Bay Company. Dennis and family moved with the promotions from Winnipeg t o Edmonton, Vancouver, Vernon and Toronto. Dennis resigned from Hudson’s Bay in Toronto and moved his family back to North Vancouver where he liked best. Dennis opened a store in West Vancouver. Within a short time the store turned into a chain of 8 in most major malls in the city. All the time split with the North Shore Winter Club, where he enjoyed curling and tennis, mostly with the lifelong friends he had made there. Dennis enjoyed his retirement and played golf and tennis well into his mid-80’s. Dennis lost his close eldest son Roy. With a large chunk of money left by Roy to help people suffering, and with Dennis’ guidance, Goodman House started with the Canadian Mental Health and was staffed by Coastal Health. Roy’s Place offered people somewhere to go and some help when they needed it most. Dennis will be interred at Capilano View Cemetery on Wednesday, January 26, at 2:00 pm. We will miss him….
