SK Peter Goudreau
SK Peter Goudreau returned to the Lord last night. He was a long time Knight, having joined the Order in July 1953. He was also a Member of Father Abram J. Ryan Assembly.
Here is Peter Goudreau’s obituary:
Peter Alvin Goudreau, age 84, of University Park passed away December 7, peacefully at home among his family. He is survived by his sons Peter John Goudreau and wife Linda, Dr. Jeffrey Bennitt Goudreau and wife Sally, and grandchildren Christina, Melanie, Alexander, and Savannah. He is preceded in death by his wife, Barbara and sister Rita. He also leaves his sister Mary Salter and husband Jack, brother Wilbur Goudreau, Jr., nieces Jacqueline Salter, Robin Higgins, Angela, Carol, and Roxanne Goudreau and nephews Dennis and Gary Salter and William Anderson. After the passing of his wife in 2009, he moved to Dallas to be close to his sons and their families. Living next door to his four grandchildren was a blessing, providing them all the opportunity to know and love each other. Despite the extensive time that he devoted to various ministries in his community, he repeatedly verbalized that his family was his greatest joy and that he was blessed to spend his final years so nearby.
Pete was born on September 14, 1929 in Muskegon, Michigan. He grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with one of his first and most memorable jobs being a bell hop at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island during the heydays of the 1940′s. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Technological University followed by graduate studies in Business Management at the University of Tennessee, Oak Ridge, and the University of Houston, Clear Lake. Pete had a long and successful career in engineering management including early work in his career for the U.S. Rubber Company, Dow Chemical Company and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He retired to Florence, Alabama from the Du Pont Company in 1991 after many years working in maintenance, production, and technical management. Pete was active in various professional organizations including AIChE, AIPE, and ISA. Peter proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War.
During retirement Pete found passion and joy as a long time servant of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Before joining the local conference after his move to Dallas, he and two friends had started and managed the first St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store in Florence. He continued his diligent service to the Society by volunteering at the Dallas St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store weekly. Pete was a permanent fixture at every Bundle Sunday, regularly attended weekly meetings, and participated in home visits to those in need. A close friend describes him as a “great servant of Christ and someone I want to emulate for the rest of my life.”
Pete was also a devoted member of the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization, the Knights of Columbus, having joined the order in 1953. He was a 3rd and 4th degree Knight active in Councils in Florence, Alabama (#3989) and Dallas, Texas (#799). He was also a member of the Father Abram J. Ryan Assembly. Pete is described by his friends as a “quiet, hardworking member of the Council, always quick to volunteer for the Lenten Fish Fry dinners.”
Pete was a faithful parishioner of Christ the King Catholic Church where he was found “every morning in the fourth pew on the right.” He regularly attended the Wednesday evening bible study at the church. He was well known at the church and consistently described as a “great guy, a sweet man.”
Pete served as a volunteer at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas for several years at the professional desk, welcoming guests and navigating them through the hospital. He was described by the other hospital volunteers as “fabulous, always the first to show up at events and a joy to be around.”
Pete was also an active officer in the Berea, Ohio Elks Club (BPOE) and an Elder in the Sault Ste Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
