Paul C “Skip” Goodwin passed away after a long illness on July
6, 2019. He was 64. Paul was born on April 7, 1955 in Malden,
MA, where he grew up. He was the son of the late Paul and
Elizabeth Goodwin (Marchese) of Malden.
He is survived by his son, Nicholas Scovelle of Melrose, his
daughter Taylor Scovelle of Melrose, the mother of his children
and best friend Nicole Scovelle of Dorchester, sister Betty-Jane
Cosgrove and her husband John of Medford, his niece Kathleen
Mason and her husband Sam of Everett, and his great nephew Lucas
Mason of Everett.
Paul was a carpenter and tradesman who worked on many homes on
Martha’s Vineyard, and in California and Alabama where he also
lived. Paul was sober for 22 years and was a proud member of
Club 24 before his illness. He was known for his boisterous
laugh, his larger than life personality, and his freely given
advice on life and love. He was never one to “pull punches” and
always told you exactly what he was thinking. Paul lived life
“his way” and when he loved he did so with his whole heart and
soul. His tattoo said it best “Anything, Anytime, Anywhere”. He
was always up for the next adventure.
Paul touched many lives over the years and will be forever loved
and missed by his family and friends.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 7PM in
the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral, 144 Salem St., Malden.
