An in­ves­ti­ga­tion was un­der­way last week to de­ter­mine the cause of the fire. As is stan­dard, the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is be­ing car­ried out by the RCMP and the Fire Mar­shal’s Of­fice.

The Is­land Bar­ring­ton Pas­sage Fire De­part­ment was as­sisted in bat­tling the blaze by the Woods Har­bour Shag Har­bour Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment and the Bar­ring­ton Port LaTour Fire De­part­ment.

A me­mo­rial ser­vice for Leigh Good­win was held on Nov. 27 at H.M. Huskil­son’s Me­mo­rial Chapel in Bar­ring­ton. Me­mo­rial dona­tions may be made to the Agape Café or the Is­land and Bar­ring­ton Fire Hall.

Ac­cord­ing to Good­win’s obit­u­ary, he loved to spend time with his fam­ily, es­pe­cially his grand­chil­dren, who brought him so much joy.

He en­joyed spend­ing time watch­ing and rac­ing stock cars, off road trucks and jeeps. He was a jack of all trades and was a mem­ber of the Shel­burne County Mud Munch­ers Club.

“He will al­ways be re­mem­bered for his sense of hu­mor and al­ways hav­ing a big smile on his face,” his obit­u­ary read. “Leigh spent hours pick­ing out the per­fect birth­day card for that spe­cial per­son and very fa­mous for never sign­ing the card.”
