BERLIN, N.Y. -- Dee H. Goodermote, 81, of Route 22, died on Monday at the Center for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington where he had been for the past five days.

Born Aug. 3, 1925, and lifelong resident of Berlin, he was the son of the late Arthur J. and Marcia Vincent Goodermote. He was the loving husband of the former Grace M. Loker, whom he married on Aug. 25, 1946, in Berlin. He was a lifelong member of the Berlin United Methodist Church.

Dee worked his farm in Center Berlin and was also a carpenter for his late brother Loyal’s business, A. J. Goodermote & Sons, along with working for Paul Rivard. He drove a bus for the Berlin School District. Dee retired after 14 years of service for the W. J. Cowee, Co., Inc., where he was also a carpenter. Dee loved stock car racing and is a member of the Hall of Fame at the Lebanon Valley Speedway for being a former champion at the State Line Raceway. Dee was also an exempt fire volunteer for the Berlin Volunteer Fire Department.

Survivors include his loving wife of 60 years, Grace; a special niece (who was like a daughter) and her husband, Yvonne I. and Gary P. Messemer of Cropseyville; his siblings J. Douglas Goodermote and Elizabeth Reynolds, both of Berlin, Hilda Fryer of Troy; along with many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a brother, Loyal A. Goodermote. Grace would also like to publicly thank nephew Kent Goodermote and niece Penny Teal for their help and compassion shown to both Dee and Grace.

Per Dee’s wishes, funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family with burial to take place in the Berlin Community Cemetery. There will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that contributions be made to the Berlin United Methodist Church in loving memory of Dee. H. Goodermote. Arrangements are under the direction of the Thomas M. Barber Funeral Home of Petersburgh.
