GOODSON, Anthony Suddenly, at The Edinburgh Retirement Residence, aged 84. Tony was the beloved husband of the late Joan Goodson. Beloved father of Peter Goodson (Carol) of Victoria, and Kim Goodson of Halifax. Grandfather of Melody, Ben and Stuart Leach and Luc Goodson. Uncle of Bob Goodson (Betty) of Ottawa, brother-in-law of Jim Turpie (Michal) of Ottawa, and great-uncle of Michael Goodson, Pamela and Matthew Turpie of Ottawa, and Andrew Turpie of Victoria. He was a brother of John Goodson, and the late Arthur, Benjamin, Molly, Norman and Richard, and will be missed by many nieces and nephews on both sides of the family. Tony's last few days were happy ones spent with his son Peter and enjoying rambles and good memories. Tony served with the 4th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment in World War II in England, where he met and married Joan, a lovely Lancashire lass, and in the Italian campaign. Born in Montreal, he moved to Ottawa in 1948 with Joan, and for many years was a valued graphic artist for the federal departments of Agriculture, Industry, and Energy Mines and Resources. An enthusiastic honorary life member of the National Press Club, Tony designed their logo. His personal paintings and years of fine Christmas cards are a cherished legacy to his family.
