Jim Goodwin Obituary Notice

With deep regret, the American Alpine Club and the New York Section, wish to announce that our oldest member, James (Jim) Goodwin of Keene Valley, passed away on April 7 at the age of 101. A memorial service will be held at the Keene Valley Congregational Church on Saturday April 23 at 3PM with a reception to follow.

He was also a WW II veteran of the 10th Mountain Division. Our deepest sympathies go to his son Tony and other family members. His obituary follows:
