A son, whom they named John Evelyn Gooding, was born on March the 30th, 1942, the only child of their marriage. Cecil lived all his married life in the second home built on the farm at 'Myrtlevale'.
The sudden death of Cecil (Dick) from a heart attack on July the 25th, 1961 aged. 59 years, brought his share of the property to his son, John who managed it in conjunction with his uncle, Laurel Stanley (see above). On his uncle's death in 1970, John was bequeathed the remainder of the Gooding estate.
'Myrtlevale' was sold in March 1983 and John and his mother Gwendoline, now reside at Shady Creek.
