Godwin’s funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at River of Life Ministries on Lakeshore Boulevard in Euclid. The family originally said the services would be held Friday, but changed the date to Saturday due to the overwhelming number of people wanting to attend.
The service is open to the public.
Godwin was shot to death Sunday after an Easter celebration while walking on East 93rd Street in Cleveland. Steve Stephens, 37, was the alleged shooter, and posted video of the killing on Facebook. After a multi-state manhunt, Stephens killed himself in Erie, Pa., Tuesday.
Godwin was a father of 10, and his family described him as a wonderful person who loved his family. Godwin’s family wants their father to be remembered for the good he did in his life, not for the horrific video. They are asking people to please not share the video.
