John Goddard – A Pillar of Strength and Courage to the End – Updated with Funeral Details

It is with great sadness that we learned John Goddard passed away on 21st January. Both he and Jill had been longtime members of the club supporting the bowling and social nights – they were great quizzers!  John supported Jill’s valuable work for the RNLI.
In recent years he had been diagnosed with cancer but his strength and positive attitude was a credit to his desire to carry on living despite the poor prognosis.

John was a pretty decent bowler indeed, and although he had to give up in 2019, he still had a good result for his team at the Skittles evening in October!  He and Jill came to the Christmas Party at the club and spent time with their bowls’ friends.  John said he had no complaints – he’d had a very good life, a wonderful family and experienced a long and enjoyable retirement . He said his only regret was that he would leave Jill behind.

Our deepest sympathies go to Jill who looked after John until it was time for him to join our other friends in the Great Bowls Club in the Sky.
