The focus of Dr Goodman’s life outside surgery was his beloved farm, Vanaheim, “home of the four winds,” outside Toronto. He restored the 1872 farmhouse, built a pond, planted thousands of trees (his favorite, blue spruce), and crafted beautiful gardens. Here he became a cabinetmaker and woodworker, crafting hundreds of bowls and stools as gifts. The entrance was graced by 3 exquisite whalebones arching to the sky. Vanaheim was the focus for family gatherings—his 5 children, 14 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. Dr Goodman also appreciated and supported the arts, especially the Toronto Symphony and the Canadian Opera Company, and was a patron of Canadian artists. He was an active Freemason for 60 years.
