"He was very good-hearted...he would give you the shirt off of his back," one relative said.

As family members spoke to WKYC, they cried as they talked about their father who they say was a good man who loved to go fishing. They said Godwin went fishing Sunday morning.

Stephens is thought to driving a white Ford Fusion with temporary tags. He is considered armed and dangerous.
