Edward Goins

Edward F. Goins, Jr., age 78, passed away after a short illness on Friday, November 29, 2019. A native of Frankfort, he married his high school sweetheart, Joan Ramsey. He first met Joan when he was 17, after seeing her at a high school Sadie Hawkins Dance. After dating 5 years, they married on August 23, 1963, at the First United Methodist Church by Rev. James Shepard. Edward was born September 25, 1941, to the late Edward Franklin Goins and Ruth Evelyn Sluscher Goins.


He was a graduate of Frankfort High School and attended Georgetown College and Eastern Kentucky University. In his youth, he delivered milk and ice door to door for Goins Brothers Dairy. He joined Pickett and Goins Real-Estate and became part of the development of the Indian Hills subdivision. With insurance being his passion, he opened Edward F Goins, Jr. Insurance in downtown Frankfort and in 1972 he moved his office to 600 East Main. At that time his father, Franklin Goins (Kentucky House Representative, 1945) asked why he wanted to open an insurance agency so far out in the county. In 1980, his brother, Kenneth joined his agency and changed the name to Goins and Goins Insurance Agency. In 2019, his son Frank, re-joined the insurance agency in honor of Franklin Goins Sr. and they changed the name to Franklin Goins Insurance Agency.


Edward’s love of community and politics led him to lead many organizations. In the late 1960 Edward tried his hand at running for State Representative only to lose by a small margin. He was the Past President of the Frankfort Board of Realtors, Past President of the Lions Club, Past President of Franklin County Young Democrats, and a former member Board of Trustees of First United Methodist Church. Under Governor Wendell Ford’s administration, he was the first Grand Marshall not to ride a horse in the inaugural parade. Edward since has worked in nearly every democratic governor’s campaign. In addition, he was also the past Treasurer for the Kentucky House Democratic Caucus.
