James Godwin, of White, GA, born July 7,1943, passed away early Thursday morning, October 4th, 2018 after fighting a hard battle with Congested Heart Failure & Leukemia. He proudly served 3 tours in Vietnam with the Army Special Forces. His son, Joseph Godwin, followed in his footsteps and is currently serving our country as Lt.

He leaves behind his wife- Kathy Godwin; two sons-Joseph & Charles Godwin; four daughters- Cari Dhungana, Lyndsy Pilson, Kim Jaeger, & Suzanne Garrison; plus eleven grandchildren (with two more on the way).

As a member of Chapter XXXIII of the Special Forces Association located in Cleveland, Tennessee, he previously served as Vice President and most recently as their Treasurer. He and his wife enjoyed the many Quarterly Meetings the Chapter held, as well as the time they spent at the Annual National Conventions.    

His hobbies included gardening and woodworking. In addition, his love for antique clocks always left him tinkering in his workshop with his beloved dog Roxy by his side.   A service to honor Mr. Godwin will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018, 12:00 Noon, in the chapel of Georgia Funeral Care, 4671 S.

To my dad, We didn't share much contact in the later part of your life. For this I'm so sorry. I wish you were proud of me. I'm a good man. I wish you could have met my wife. She is an amazing woman. Im sorry for the things that made us lose contact. I hope to see you in heaven some day so we can listen to Johnny Cash and shoot the breeze. I love you my father!! Your Son, Charlie Reply to this comment
