Born in Saint-Jacques NB on August 3, 1939, he was a son of the late Joseph and Marie (Gauvin) Godin. A loving partner, father, grandfather and brother, in addition to his partner, Anne, Louis is survived by his daughter: Carol Ann Comeau of Blacks Harbour NB; his step-children: Steve (Debbie) Poitras of Norton NB, Tina (David) Cleveland of Quispamsis NB and Carol Melanson of Grand Manan NB; granddaughter: Amy Comeau (Shawn); step-grandchildren: Cody Campbell and Chelsey Campbell (Max); great-grandchildren: Brandon (Sarah), Kathleen and Sophie; great-great-grandson: Elijah; one brother: Medrick Godin (Irma); and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Prior to retirement, Louis worked for Connors Brothers in
Blacks Harbour where he was employed as both a Supervisor and then as
a Plant Manager. Louis loved music, both singing and playing and even
dabbled in recording. He was a true family man who loved spending his
free time with his family, especially his grandchildren. When able,
you could often find Louis playing on his tractor. His love and
devotion to his family will be truly missed.
