RANDOLPH — Harold Lee Goggin, 66, of West Forks and Randolph, died unexpectedly from a heart attack on April 28.
Harold was born in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, on Jan. 8, 1945, the oldest of five children of Lee and Eleanor Eagles Goggin. Harold was a 1963 graduate of Gardiner Area High School and served in the United States Coast Guard.
He spent 25 years in the line department at Central Maine Power Company, retiring in 1995.
