Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 42

Loving Husband, Father, Son and Good Friend


Heaven has been made richer by the arrival of a caring, generous and loving husband, father, son and good friend. Timothy Edgar Goodaire was born in St. John's, Newfoundland on October 30, 1975, the son of Carolyn (Parker) Goodaire and Edgar Goodaire, of Ontario, Canada.

Throughout his career, he worked for Momentum IT Group in Halifax; Afilias in Toronto; Wireless Generation in New York; Dyn in Manchester, NH and was currently employed by Cisco-Cloudlock in Waltham, MA in data services. Tim had a love of music and always enjoyed listening to it on his vinyl collection. He also loved riding his motorcycle and showing off his award winning mustache. Tim was a passionate volunteer; he believed in giving back to help others. Helping at Missy's Hope, Tim became great friends with John and Heidi Cantin and spent many hours helping them fulfill their dream of an avenue to raise money to help women affected by domestic violence. He also spent many hours with his NH family raising money for his community. The times Tim spent with the members of the Bearded Sinners and their families were some of the greatest of his life. During his illness, Tim's family, friends and neighbours were always there to help and support both him and Sarah.

Tim leaves behind the greatest love of his life, his wife Sarah (Lawlor) and his dear daughter Sydney, his greatest joy; his parents Carolyn Goodaire and Edgar (Madonna) Goodaire; his brother Mark (Annie); and uncles David (Pamela) and Bruce (Kirsten) as well as many good friends and extended family members. He was predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents.
