Berta, Brenda, Steven & Jen,
It was so sad to hear of David's passing. He was such an integral part of my childhood. I have so many fond memories of spending time at your house when I was a little girl and a young adult. David was always so funny, always a joker, so fun, so kind, so generous. He was a wonderful man, and he was always great to me and my family. I was so blessed to know him. Russell Street will never be the same without him. We will always miss his smiling face. RIP Mr. Woodward.❤️

I am very sad to hear of Mr. Woodward's passing. I loved him, who couldn't love him? He was the nicest guy, always generous, always opening his house to all the kids on the street. He had the best personality, always joking and making us laugh! He always had a smile on his face and a great laugh; he was always so much fun when we were kids. I have fond memories of growing up with Jen and Steve and Brenda on Russell Street. My family will really miss him.❤️

Uncle Dave was the uncle that played with us on the floor! He always made us kids feel loved! Even after I was grown he showed how much he loved children by willingly taking care of my child, Samantha when she was about 2. He and Auntie Roberta babysat for her and proceeded to be blindsided as soon as Sammie was transferred into their car for the drive back to Hull! Half way back to their house, Sam began throwing-up!! Throughout the ordeal, Uncle Dave worked his magic by making Sammie feel safe and loved by making her laugh before and after each bout of nausea! I’ll always be grateful to him for making my little girl girl happy even in those circumstances! I love you Uncle Dave and will always miss you in our lives! Love, Sue

David Woodward was my brother-law for nearly 60 years. He was married to my sister Roberta (Berta )who he adored . A very big part of our family. He had a big heart and a great sense of humor . He was a loving Zadie and father to his children and Grandchildren . His many nieces and nephews will also miss his smiling face and laughter. You will forever be in our thoughts and hearts. R I P
