“Jack” O’Neil Godwin passed from his earthly home on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach, S.C. due to complications of pneumonia.

O’Neil was born Sept. 8, 1938 to the late Tobie Godwin and Mary Garrell Godwin. He was also preceded in death by six siblings, Edward Godwin, Shedward Godwin, Elizabeth Penney, Flaudia Fowler, Arvel Godwin and Inez Glazier.

He loved fishing, tending his garden and riding on his tractor. Most of all, he loved making people laugh.

Services will be private.  The family is being assisted by Brunswick Funeral Services in Shallotte.

O’Neil leaves behind, to cherish his memory, his loving daughter, Valerie Dumproff (John); one grandson, John T. Dumproff;  one granddaughter, Jenamari Rigg (Riley); two great-granddaughters, Audrey and Naomi Rigg; his longtime companion, Lorraine Parker Milligan and her children,  Reese Milligan (Donna), Sherri Tentnowski (Michael) and Darlene Williams (Danny) and grandchildren, Jessie, Kelsy, Angela and Alex; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
