Gary and Karen enjoyed their years servicing customers through Gary Goodin Plumbing Company. Gary began plumbing in the early 70's working for his Uncle Jay Chadwick at Morris Plumbing continuing his career with Nunn Plumbing after serving 4 years in the US Navy. After 20 years with Nunn Plumbing, Gary ventured out on his own and built the company many of our customers knew as Gary Goodin Plumbing Company. His 50+ years of experience continues to be a valuable resource to Goodin Plumbing and our customers as he provides occasional consulting services as needed. Karen began her business career with Best Stores and was the sweet voice of Gary Goodin Plumbing Company for 20 years. She took a break from the plumbing industry for several years and then hired on as Goodin Plumbing's secretary in the summer of 2018 until she passed in November 2020.
