Date of Death: June 12, 2022

Date of Birth: July 19, 1943


Bernard Goodman passed away at Hill House, Bath, Me. On June 12, 2022 due to a 65 year struggle with type 1 diabetes. Bernie was born to Chaim Goodman and Leah Granat of Poland, both survivors of the Holocaust, on July 19, 1943.

In 1965 Bernie graduated from M.I.T with a degree in Physics. For 37 years he worked at Draper Laboratory of Cambridge, MA as a systems engineer and was involved with the Apollo guidance project.

Bernie was a past volunteer for the Georgetown Fire Department. He loved sailing his Drascombe Lugger in Sheepscot Bay, stargazing with his family and friends and listening to classical, blues and jazz music. He played his treasured 1967 Gibson guitar he purchased while still in college up until his passing.
