Some time ago, I had the honor of serving for President Teresa Goodwin at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences in Cincinnati, Ohio. She was an incredible mentor and colleague; a visionary who was able to bring life to the college from the ground up laying the foundation for what this institution is today.
Along the way, she introduced me to her dear husband, Dick, who was always right there by her side. He was full of life, humor, and a deep love for his wife who he always expressed such deep pride for including the hard work she did in helping bring the college to life.
Dick passed away a couple of days ago at 81 years of age. In his passing, today I remember his 30-year marriage to Terry, his life of service, and his dedication to the communities in which he lived and worked.
Indeed, a life well-lived, Dick Goodwin. Rest in peace.
