David Samuel Woodward, born November 11, 1962, unexpectedly crossed over to be with the Lord January 1, 2021. David was a devoted father of three children, Dylan Alexander, Darrah Lee Austin, and Heather Rose. He was a loving uncle to Erica Strick, Amanda Stansell, Sarah Seeberger, and Joshua Woodward. He was a beloved fiancé to Edi Reiff and a wonderful mentor to her children and grandchildren. Words cannot express the pain and loss to his loved ones in the midst of his passing. There is a great comfort in acknowledging all he meant to everyone whose life he touched. David’s life on earth will be celebrated by all who loved him, and his memory here will be cherished, until we see him again.

Dear family and friends I met David thru my partner Robert Herold
while he was at OHL with Dave. We appreciated the gentleman
he is.

As a kid I have vivid memories of eating Fruity Pebbles at Grammie’s house while listening to the sound of squeaking basketball shoes from
The Celtics. David loved the Celtics. 💚 As an older niece, I loved his stories. So much of our family history was unknown to me, as my father has passed and he never really told me stories about my grandfather and the family growing up. David brought a whole new perspective to me and I am so incredibly grateful that Edi wrote these stories down. David and I also shared a real love for Christmas, and he even gave me a good recommendation to pick out our Christmas tree this year. When Edi came into our family, she brought a new life to my uncle that I had never seen. David was taken with Edi and I am so blessed to have her in our family. I have truly enjoyed learning more about my uncle through Edi. My uncle was absolutely the kindest man who loved his family deeply. The scripture verse that I posted early in the morning on the day he passed brings me comfort and hope. I had no idea what was about to happen that evening.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John‬ ‭16:33‬

David is in perfect peace, joy, and rest right now. It is us on Earth that have to feel the pain and loss, but the Bible reminds me that we do not grieve as those who have no hope (1 Thessalonians 4:13). God, all of our hope is in You. David, I love you and I know that I will see you again some day. ❤️🙏
