HEART tarps roof after Good's laboratory fire

by Patricia Duff 20th March 2019

After a fire whipped through Leonard Good's lab, South Whidbey Hearts & Hammers HEART crew was there to help.


After a fire destroyed the Langley classroom laboratory of longtime, beloved science teacher Leonard Good on Wednesday, Feb. 27, the South Whidbey Hearts & Hammers Home Emergency Action Repair Team (HEART) stepped into action and was on the scene to help by the following Friday.


The content of Good’s classroom was pretty much destroyed in the fire, but the HEART crew was able to tarp the roof to keep things inside from being further destroyed by the elements.


Good’s wife, Linda Good, expressed her gratitude to the HEARTS crew for the help.


“We’re very grateful for the help offered to us from HEART and many other people, who offered to help.”


Good said one of Leonard’s former students, Ariel (Hanson) Fenton, went ahead and set up a “Go Fund Me” account with the title “Help the Goods Recover from a Classroom Fire” at www.gofundme.com.


South Whidbey Hearts & Hammers is an organization that helps South Whidbey homeowners with repairs to their homes. An annual workday takes place on the first Saturday in May, but for those who need immediate help for a quick repair, the HEART crew is there, just like they were there for the Goods.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.
