Clark’s Harbour house fire claims life
60-year-old man dies despite efforts to rescue him
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.”
Caution tape was wrapped around a burned-out home in Clark’s Harbour, Shelburne County, that claimed the life of a 60-year-old man. An investigation to determine the cause of the fire is underway by the Fire Marshall’s Office.
Family and friends are mourning the death of Leigh Goodwin.
