November 7, 1930 - June 25, 2020
Howard W. Goins, age 89, a resident of Old Fort, passed away peacefully Thursday, June 25, 2020 at the family residence. He was so ready to meet his Jesus! Mr. Goins was born in Cleveland and he was the son of the late Ellen "Tiny" Carr Goins and Lozier Goins. His first wife, Mary Lou Hayes Goins, his second wife, Rosezine Ross Powell Goins, his sisters, June Mooneyham Allman, Faye Evans, Barbara Herron and her husband L.N., his brothers, Johnny, Roy and Leonard Goins and his step son, Terry Ross also preceded him in death. At a very early age he and his brothers, Johnny and Roy had to help provide for their family of 10. So he has always been a hard worker to provide for his own family. He was a truck driver most of his life driving for Burlington, Cleveland Ready Mix, Bradley Concrete and Lambert Concrete. He loved driving for Lambert until his age forced him to retire. Mr. Goins truly loved animals and treated them like people. Sharing his last years with him was his dog "Baby", a spoiled rotten friend and companion that he loved so much. He also loved the outdoors. He loved family and always tried to help others in need. He will be truly missed! Mr. Goins attended the Evening Light Gospel Tabernacle and Samples Memorial Baptist Church. Survivors include his daughter, Linda Beaty and her husband Clinton of Cleveland, his sons, Dr. Larry W. Goins and his wife Melanie of Knoxville, Timothy Goins and his girlfriend Joyce of Benton, his grandchildren, Stephanie Sewell and her husband Sam, Erin Goins and her husband Roy, Patrick Goins and his wife Christina, Chandler Goins and his wife Alexa, Adam Goins and Missy Collins and her husband Bo, his great grandchildren, Gage Matott, Gavin Sewell, Keegan Goins, Jacob Long and Keeley Collins, his sisters, Joyce Hall and her husband Cecil and Climmie Freeman, his brother, Jimmy Goins and his wife Phyliss, his extended family, Sheila Cameron and her husband Anthony Cameron, Jane Creassy and her husband Don, Sharon Cavitt and her husband Marvin, Rick Ross and his wife Treba, his special family, Barbara Raburn and her husband Ronnie, Muriel Dean Hayes, Francis Goins, Mabel Hayes and Bonnie Hayes and his many nieces and nephews also survive.
