Edward Goodwin “Goody” Wilson, 77, passed in the late evening of July 3, 2015 at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, having succumbed to aspiration pneumonia, one of the many complications from surgery that he suffered over the course of six cruel months. Hospitalized and bedridden throughout, he handled his circumstances with a strength, a dignity and a gentleness that few in his place would equal.

He was a lifetime resident of Poquoson, and an employee of Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company, where he worked as a pipefitter and watertender, from 1956 to his retirement in 2000. He enjoyed and took pride in restoring and maintaining his three vintage automobiles, and was an avid fan of NASCAR, and Poquoson High School football and baseball.

Edward was preceded in death by his parents, Edward Preston Wilson and Elizabeth Hopkins Wilson, and by his first wife, Janice Carden Wilson.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife, Emily A. Wilson ; his daughter, Denise Wilson Sanchez ; his sons, Jeffrey Scott Wilson and Edward Goodwin Wilson, Jr.; his stepdaughters, Karen L. Thomas and Cathy Jean Thomas; and his grandson, Samual Goodwin Sanchez.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, July 8, at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson.

The funeral service will be conducted by Pastor Dan Cromer on Thursday, July 9, at the Claytor Rollins funeral home. Interment will follow at Parklawn Memorial Park, Hampton
