Peter Wayne Goodman

Peter Wayne Goodman was taken from us on Nov. 1, 2019, at the age of 63 after a courageous battle against cancer.

Peter was born in Conway, N.H., April 11 1956, to Helen and Earl Goodman. He graduated from Kennett High School in 1975 and worked in the valley at Glen Sand and Gravel, Yield House, Northeast Auto Body, and most recently the transfer station. He loved all things classic especially cars and music.

Next to his children and grandchildren, Peter’s pride and joy was his very first car, a 1956 Chevy Belair. A car he proudly restored. His life had many highlights, including his trip to Graceland in 2014 when he finally got to see the home of “the King” something he waited many years to do. To know Peter was to love him.

He had a warm gentle personality with an even bigger heart, he would help anyone who needed it. Peter never strayed far from the valley and couldn’t go places without seeing or talking to someone he knew.

He was truly a friend to all who knew him, his passing is a sadness that is not only experienced by his family but by a large part of the Conway community. His wit and unique perspective on life and his good nature will be missed but not forgotten by anyone who know him.

Peter is survived by his daughters, Courtney Goodman and spouse, Christopher Foy, of Waltham, Mass.; Ashley Laverdure and spouse, Josh Laverdure, of Gorham N.H.; Chelsea Goodman and spouse, Tom Caughey, of Conway, N.H. Peter is also survived by his sister, Audrey Russell and his brother, Jimmy Goodman; four grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Peter is also predeceased by his daughter, Kristy; and the mother of his children and friend, Jody Learn.

Visting hours will be held at Furber and White Funeral Home in North Conway on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. followed by a graveside service on Saturday at 1 p.m. in Conway Village Cemetery.

In lieu for flowers, please make donations to Mount Washington Valley Old Car Club scholarship fund at MWVOCC, P.O. Box 1573, North Conway, NH 03860 or Jen’s Friends Cancer Foundation.
