Glenn E. Goodin of Fallbrook passed away on November 30, 2007, at the age of 89. He was born to Albert and Lola Goodin on February 11, 1918, in Bonsall.
Glenn proudly retired from SDG&E after 32 years of dedicated service. A line foreman, he helped to train many new linemen.
Glenn was always a very athletic man. He played for the St. Louis Cardinal Baseball farm club in 1939, which allowed him to play beside so many great people, and he continued to play with teams until the age of 55.
His love for athletics never waned, as he hated missing a good Padres or Chargers game. He also loved deer hunting with his family in Utah and reading good western books. These were just a few of his favorite past times.
Glenn is survived by his loving and supportive family: wife Debra E. Goodin, Fallbrook; sons Michael Goodin, West Salt Lake City, UT, Glenn Goodin Jr., West Valley City, UT, and Ronald Goodin, Oceanside, CA; daughter Glenda McMillan, Loomis, CA; stepdaughters Amanda, Jessica and Alana Sprague; and brother Lorin Goodin, Sylacauga, AL.
He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Dorothy Burks and son Robert Goodin.
Glenn was a man of great compassion, love and generosity. He was very easygoing and could find the positive side to all things. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who had the opportunity to truly know him.
