POWNAL
Robert Alvan Goodell, III, 49, of North Pownal, Vermont died in his home of natural causes on October 13, 2009.

Born in London, England on May 13, 1960, Rob lived much of his life in Williamstown, Massachusetts. He graduated from Mount Greylock Regional High School in 1978 and most recently worked at Orvis in Manchester, Vermont. Rob was a skilled carpenter and rugged individualist who loved music and the outdoors. His unique sense of humor and generous heart will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

Rob is survived by his parents, Dr. Robert and Irmadel Goodell of Marshfield, Massachusetts (formerly Williamstown, Massachusetts), brother Jeff Goodell and his wife Susan Goodell of West Newbury, Vermont, sister Karen Goodell and her husband John Hunter of Granville, Ohio, sister Jane Bartholomew and her husband Greg Bartholomew of Santa Barbara, California, and seven nieces and nephews.

Donations can be made in Rob’s name to the Wildlands Trust, Inc. PO Box 2282, Duxbury, MA 02331 ( wtsm@wildlandstrust.org), an organization that manages conservation land near the summer cottage that Rob loved in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Memorial services celebrating the life of Rob Goodell will be held Saturday, November 14, 2009 at the South Williamstown Congregational Church at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Penny Rich Smith, pastor, officiating.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Mahar and Son Funeral Home in Bennington.
