Charles G. Goodhue, a longtime partner in R&J Packing Co., in Winchester, Mass., who’d been a proud Deke brother at Mu-Colgate, died unexpectedly on July 9 in Tewksbury, Mass., at the age of 67.


Charles worked for many years at R&J, distributing meat and seafood, before concluding his career by restoring old houses and running a power washing company. He’d been a talented athlete at Colgate, starring on the tennis team, before graduating with a degree in Philosophy and Religion.


After college, Charles made his mark at tennis, golf and skiing. He was a hardcore Boston sports fan who coached for years in the Special Olympics.


Charles is survived by his wife, Lisa, and a son and daughter.
