Goodwin, a San Francisco resident, was an employee with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency where he worked as a hearing clerk.
Bill Keener, a spokesman for the EPA, told KRON4 that Goodwin, who had osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic defect that affects the body's collagen production, also worked with disability rights groups to improve the city's policies for responding to emergencies, especially for people with disabilities.
"We're still kind of shocked about it," Keener said.
