Timothy (Tim) Goodart, 59, of Oxford, CT departed this life on September 27, 2023

He was predeceased by his son Joshua Goodart of Oxford, CT, his brother Tyrone
Gregory Goodart, II originally of Hamilton, MA, his sister-in-law Lorna Beksha of
Medway, MA, and his brother-in-law Mark Carrachino of Milford, MA.
Besides his immediate family, Tim is also survived by his mother in-law, Lina

Lynne Desjourdy and her husband Paul of Millis, MA, and Karen Carrachino of

Tim was born in Elizabeth, NJ, September 7, 1964, to Tyrone and Beverly (Nye)
Goodart. Tim moved to South Hamilton, MA with his family where he grew up. At a
very young age, Tim was known to be adventurous, and he and his baby sister
"Barbie" would be seen together on their excursions. As years went by, Tim and
Barbie became referred to as the Irish twins, always together like two peas in a pod.
He loved spending summers in Maine at his family's lake house where water sports
became his passion.
After meeting the love of his life, Lynette, they settled into their home in Oxford, CT,
where they raised their children, Joshua and Justin, as well as building their extended
family with their loving and caring neighbors. Here is where his passion and
dedication grew to include coaching his sons in baseball, cheering them on in
wrestling, ultimate frisbee, football and soccer. Like Tim, his kids enjoyed being
outdoors. Many summers were enjoyed tubing, knee boarding, skiing, and fishing at
the family lake house. The neighborhood family shared adventures of camping, New
Years Eve gatherings, and ice-skating on Tim's homemade ice rink in the yard.
Tim received his BS in Mechanical Engineering, from Northeastern University in
Boston, MA. He was currently employed at Mott Corporation in Farmington, CT
where he was employed for 19 years. He always referred to Mott as his work family.
Throughout his years there Tim was passionate about helping others, dedicated to
finding unique solutions for his customers, and was fully committed to the success of
the company. Recently Mott awarded Tim the Bud H. Mott Excellence Award in
recognition of his exemplary core values and long-standing contributions to the
company. Many of his colleagues described him with words like dedicated, faithful,
integrity, courageous, supremely confident, and lively.
Tim's dream was to retire and own a boat and lake house. So, as the months passed
and his illness continued, he and Lynette decided to make sure his dream would come
true. Although Tim was taken away far too quickly, he did have time at a nearby lake
house with his boat and was able to ride and fish on the lake, just as he dreamed. To
see his joy in the few minutes of freedom from his cancer and illness was everything.
We now picture him riding a boat with the sun in his "baby" blue eyes, wind in his
hair and his first mate, Joshua, by his side. Knowing the two are now together in
Heaven brings a small sense of peace to us all.
