Friends We’ll Miss: Fall 2022

Farewell to departed alumni reported to the University between March 21 and Aug. 3, 2022.

Richard C. Goodwin, 1928–2022

Richard C. Goodwin, a loyal Drexel alumnus, philanthropist and businessman — whose name graces The Goodwin College of Professional Studies — died on June 24, 2022, at the age of 94.

Born in Philadelphia in 1928, Goodwin credited his father, Harry, for teaching him the values of self-discipline and a solid education. He strove to construct a better world, using the values he inherited from his father, along with his compassion and knowledge of business.

Goodwin received his bachelor’s degree in commerce and engineering from Drexel in 1948, followed by an honorary doctoral degree in 2004.

Through Goodwin Enterprises, he, his family and colleagues had an enormous impact on shaping the landscape of South Jersey through the construction of thousands of residential units, as well as sewer and water companies and neighborhood shopping centers. Additionally, Goodwin was chairman and founder of the Goodwin Foundation, supporting more than 100 organizations and institutions throughout the United States.

His landmark naming gift to Drexel in 2000 resulted in the renovation of Goodwin College’s facilities and support for the college’s practical education in several areas of technology, applied management and liberal studies to all students.

He is survived by his wife, Susan Nitsch; his children, Joanna, John and Robert Goodwin; grandchildren; and great-granddaughters.
