It is with great sadness that the family of Edward M. “Bub” Godfrey announces his passing peacefully at Queens Manor, Liverpool, on Saturday, November 20th, 2010.
Born in Brooklyn, he was a son of the late Arnold and Marion (Cole) Godfrey.
Bub worked for Bowater Mersey Paper Company for thirty seven years and went lobster fishing on his vacations. He always spoke fondly about his duck and rabbit hunting trips with his black lab, Lady. An excellent carpenter, family members were the grateful recipients of his many wood working projects. Married for over sixty years, Bub was devoted to his beloved wife Margie and his family. His grandchildren and great grandchildren were his pride and joy. Family gatherings were always the highlight of his life and his sense of humor and ability to bring a smile will be sorely missed.
Surviving besides his wife are his daughters: Joyce Raymond of Burlington, On; Joan (Donald) Moreau of Mill Village; Betty (Bernie) Hatt of Conqueral Bank; Peggy (Murray) Whynot of Milton. Sons: Allan (Margo) of Liverpool and Steven (Jackie) of Milton. 11 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. Brothers: George (Georgie) of Kingston, On.; Andrew (Lil) Beach Meadows; John (Joanne) of Brooklyn; David (Janet) of Brooklyn.
He was predeceased by a granddaughter Ann; twin brothers Ronald in infancy and Reginald; son in law Greg Raymond.
