  • I had known Pauline before as my grandparents,Titus and Martha Joshua,of whom,knew Paulines mom.I also had the opportunity to get to know the Goudie Clan as sometimes in my young life,I played in all the bars and nightclubs in and around Goose Bay, Happy Valley,and made friends with these guys so easily, as they were outgoing. Not to say they were at the clubs all the time, but very friendly, easy mannered good folks all around. RIP old friend and condolences to Pauline,and the rest of the family. - Posted by: Gus Joshua (friend,acquaintance) on: Dec 08, 2015

  • Although I never knew Halden as well as his older brothers, I knew him to have the same fun-loving traits as they did. Always up for a good laugh, and sometimes at my expense. As a younger man, I spent a good bit of my time at their house which was located just up the street from ours. I think they inherited their fun-loving nature from their mother who was always up for a good laugh as well. We are all given a time and a season on this earth, and Halden's expired on November 28th, and I do believe he lived life to the fullest at the things he loved, hunting, working around his home and spending time with his beloved wife, Pauline. And of course, traveling. Rest in peace Halden........I pray peace and comfort over your wife, family, relatives, and your many friends. God bless you Pauline. - Posted by: Paul Blake (Cousin) on: Dec 08, 2015

  • My grandpa was the funniest kindest man I will ever know, on top of the laughter and all the great memories we shared as kids and adults you were the best out doors men Ive ever met. I am sad I didnt get to spend more time with you and my children but I am happy I got my entire child hood to embrace all the memories we had growing up. You'll never know how much I will miss you today but I know your in a better place now. I will always embrace every joke and every funny thing you ever said to me. I know that anyone who met him or knew of him knew what a great person he was...No matter the ups and downs noone will ever take away who you are at heart. You made a part of who I am today and you left way to soon because I had plans to spend time with you and children yet...Plans to go fishing and hang out again... He was the best guitar player I ever knew and I always tried begging him to teach me but my fingers were to short...he would say I have sausage fingers haha. I will miss you dearly and every day is harder than the next. I love you grandpa and in my heart youll rest. Take it easy up there. Lots of love Skylar, Madison & Sophia xoxoxoxox - Posted by: Skylar Van Wyk (Grand Daughter a daughter he raised from birth) on: Dec 08, 2015
