Obituary Condolences

ROBERT MARVIN "B" GOODWYN EDINBURG - Robert Marvin Goodwyn, known to all simply as "B", was born in George West, Texas to Richard and Ellie Goodwyn. He departed this Earth at the ripe old age of 91. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Kathryn Triplitt Goodwyn; his parents, Richard and Ellie Goodwyn; brothers, Richard (Dick) Goodwyn and Perry (Dub) Goodwyn; and sister, Lois Goodwyn Morris Fawcett. "B" will be missed by the family he leaves behind: two daughters; Kathy (Rusty) Lewis and Tracy (Tim) Arnold; grand children, Zachary Lewis, Robert Lewis, and Morgan Arnold; sister, Margaret (AJ) Bell; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. "B" was involved in the cattle industry for most of his life, working hard to establish a cattle trucking company that he and his wife Kathryn successfully ran for many years before venturing into the livestock auction business. "B" was known for his sense of humor and fondness for telling stories -- even if the story changed through the years. He touched the lives of many people with his unique sense of humor and his witty nature; whether it was setting off an entire table full of fireworks all at the same time or driving around the sale barn parking lot in his red pick-up, all who knew "B" will agree - he lived life with gusto! Family would like to thank the nurses from home health care; Amenity Hospice services; as well as his devoted caregivers, Amelia Zavala, Maria Mireles, Marta and Zenon Cabrera. Visitation will be Monday, May 12, 2014 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Kreidler Funeral Home. The Graveside service will be Tuesday, May 13, 2013 3:00pm at Hillcrest Cemetery in Edinburg. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Driscoll Children's Hospital (3533 South Alameda, Corpus Christi TX 78411) or the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund (101 Pro Rodeo Drive, Colorado Springs CO 80919).
