“We are sad to announce the peaceful passing of our dear dad, David Goodwin, on 25th February 2022.

His career was spent entirely as a solicitor in London and he became the senior partner in the law firm, Druces and Attlee.

He was highly respected by colleagues and clients, alike.

David loved cricket throughout his life, playing for Abingdon school, Berkshire schoolboys and Woking and Horsell.

In later years he developed a passion for golf, joining Sutton Green Golf Club. He made lasting friendships through both sports and could often be found at the cricket club at Sunday lunchtime, enjoying liquid refreshment and banter.

He was a master bridge player too, he couldn’t resist a bit of good competition.
David also volunteered in several capacities

David has three sons, Paul, Keith and Nicholas and six grandchildren, so far.
He is survived also by his loving wife, Celia.

Just a little something to say thank you very much for all of your kind support during a very difficult time.

You really went above and beyond to help us and it was truly appreciated.

Thank you for helping us organise such a personal and fitting service for Margaret and everything else that you did for us.”

“I would like to say a big thank you for everything. I had nothing to worry about, it all went so smoothly from the day of his death to the end of the funeral and in the circumstances could not have been better. Thank you so much.

I don’t have a great deal of experience in these matters, but compared to the other funeral directors I had to deal with, Greenwoods are the tops and you personally were a pleasure to deal with, you hit absolutely the right note.”

Ann Bishop

“Dear Fran

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for all your care and support in the arrangements for my dad, John.

I know that my Mum, Valerie, was most grateful for your support and care, particularly last Friday which was a difficult day for her. Mum said to me that you went over and above in her eyes, making sure she was ok before you would let her leave.

Dad would have highly approved of the day yesterday, and that’s all we could have asked for. It really was the celebration of his life that he would have wanted.

Again, my sincerest thanks and gratitude to you all.”

Helena

Malcolm did a brilliant job too. Thank you, Jane, With love and sincere, thank you.”

Many thanks again.”
