Paul Edward Goins, 70, a lifelong resident of Cleveland, passed away on Thursday July 9, 2020, while mowing the veterans section at Fort Hill Cemetery.
Edward was preceded in death by his parents, Paul Lee and Rachel Hinkle Goins.
Edward was a very important and generous member of our community. Along with his brother Robert, they have volunteered for more than 22 years maintaining the veterans section of Fort Hill Cemetery, where their father is laid to rest.
Edward not only cut the grass, but he would help set the veterans’ headstones on the grave.
He was a simple man, but because of his big heart and dedication to his volunteer work, our community has a place of dignity where our veterans and heroes can be laid to rest with honor.
Edward greeted everyone with a smile, had a big heart and never hurt a soul. He was loved by everyone who knew him, especially his brother Robert who said, “He was the best brother and man could have.”
Our community will truly miss Paul Edward Goins.
He is survived by his brother, Robert Goins; his sisters: Barbara Murchison and her husband, Kim, and Sandra Seagraves and her husband, Jeff; along with numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
A Remembrance of Life Service will be celebrated at 2 p.m. on Monday, July 13, 2020, at Jim Rush Funeral and Cremation Services, Wildwood Avenue Chapel, with the Rev. Tom Wickes officiating.
The interment will follow at Mount Olive Church of God Cemetery with Bill Norwood, John Thompson, Jeff Seagraves, Kim Muchison, Anthony Arthur and Rodney Thompson serving as casket bearers.
