Jack Weldon Woodard
February 3, 1932 – December 28, 2018
Jack Weldon Woodard 86, passed away on December 28, 2018 in Kissimmee, FL. The oldest of 5 children, Jack was born on February 3, 1932 in Henryetta, OK to Jack Woodard and Ione T. Conn Woodard.
A hard worker, Jack knew how to relax too. You would often find him in his boat on the lake, fishing line in the water waiting for his next catch. He enjoyed entertaining and cooking for his family and friends. Always the life of the party with a smile on his face so much so that his nickname was Smiling Jack which also became his CB handle. Smiling Jack and his wife, Edith loved to travel the roads in their RV. They stocked the RV with supplies, loaded the family and enjoyed making lasting memories of the places they went and the friends made along with way. Jack retired after 37 years with General Motors allowing him more time to enjoy his family and friends.
A loving husband, devoted father and proud grandfather, Jack will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Jack was preceded by his wife, Edith Marie Woodard in 2007 and three of his siblings. He is survived by his son, Morris Kevin Woodard; granddaughter, Madison Kendall Woodard; sister, Norma, numerous nieces, nephews, other family and a host of friends.
Funeral services will be at 1:00 pm, Thursday, January 10, 2019 at Moore Funeral Home. Entombment to follow at Moore Memorial Gardens in Arlington, TX.

As I sit here with tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart from the loss of my uncle I am also smiling at my favorite memories with him. As young children there were 5 of us so vacations were never -but when uncle Jackie took us to his home for a week it seemed like a vacation—he made sure we had fun. He bought us a slip and slide and skinned his knees up horribly playing with us 💝 and the Christmas gatherings at his house for the Woodard family including my memory of the last one with my grandfather is a treasure to my heart. I love you Jack💕💕and I’m so very grateful for our visits even the last one when your mind was slipping I still loved it. I love you always 💕
