Edward L. “Ed” Goodwin Jr., retired publisher of the Oklahoma Eagle newspaper, died Friday July 25, 2014. He was 78.
There aren’t enough words to describe the impact Ed Goodwin’s life has had on many of us here in Tulsa. He was a warm, kind and giving person who was always willing to share his vast knowledge and life experience with anyone that would take the time to listen. Ed was “living, walking, history” and the information he shared was priceless.
Ed loved music and was an avid supporter of jazz and local jazz artists, you would see Ed’s smiling face and here that gravely voice on any given night at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame and other venues around the city. Our community will not be the same without you Ed but we are all better off because you shared your life with us.
We shall truly miss you my friend…God bless you Ed.
