Harry Goodrich, Jr.

Monday, June 1st, 2020

Harry R. Goodrich, Jr. “JR” or “Dogman”, age 58, passed away May 23, 2020 at Harborview Medical Center, Seattle surrounded by loved ones. He was born March 27, 1962 in Port Townsend to Harry R. “Shiner” and Penny (La Due) Goodrich.

Harry had a smile that would light up any room. He was always trying to have a good time and everyone loved him. He was an avid sports fan. Growing up he played baseball and loved to fish. He grew up in Port Townsend, but moved to Burlington to work and raise his family, which is where he met the love of his life, Marianne. He became a Welder-Pipe Fitter and was very well known in his profession. He loved his trade, and he loved his family. Harry was a simple, smart and thoughtful man who never thought the denim jacket went out of style. He was full of smiles and always tried to make people laugh. He was “King of the Dad Jokes,” even if he was the only one who thought he was funny. He loved hanging out in his backyard, his own private getaway, where he could take in the company of his friends and family. He enjoyed gardening, making things with his hands, and recently, cooking. He was a member of the Upper Skagit Indian Tribe and will be greatly missed by all.

Harry is survived by his wife, Marianne Perkins; daughters, Ashely Goodrich and Nicholle (Kody) Petersen; granddaughters, Kenzey and Karsyn; father, Harry “Shiner” (Mary) Goodrich, Sr.; mother, Penny Jackson; brothers, Tim (Joleen) and Curt Goodrich; sister, Wendy (Ben) Goodrich-Johnson. He was preceded in death by Ashely and Nicholle’s Papa and Harry’s friend, Governor Dan Jackson.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date in Port Townsend, more information about this will be posted on Facebook. Share your memories of Harry and sign the online guest register.

    If Harry put his mind to something, he excelled at it. Best pipe welder I ever knew. We partied together and we worked together. A great friend to me. He had a unique style and sense of humour. I’ll never forget the day we both saw the Red Hawk …Gonna miss you Harry Dog

    In shock. JR was one of the first people I met when I first moved to Port Townsend back in the late 70s. I didn’t know him well but always appreciated him. Ran into him randomly on a hike several years ago and he struck me a man of solid character. Sorry to see him go.

    Many fond memories of Harry. Our hearts are with his wife Marianne and their family and many friends.
    Harry will be Forever Loved, Forever Remembered.

    You taught me that even if you see a more efficient way of completing a task, if you stand back and watch you might just learn something new. I strive to live that way to this day. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, smiles, laughter, and patience with me. I am ever grateful for the lessons you taught me years ago. I feel blessed that at one time on this journey in life our paths crossed.

    Thank you for being a wonderful and entertaining brother-in-law. Thank you for always speaking your mind and on occasion, offering up a knuckle sandwich. I know it will be sad to visit my sister and not see you there in your favorite chair watching a sport or the cooking channel, or out back making my favorite beef jerky and smoked salmon 🙁 Thank you for so generously opening up your house to me and allowing me to be part of your world. You were the best thing that happened to my sister and I was honored to have you as a brother. I will greatly miss you, but I know that your smile lives on in our hearts and in heavenly places.
