I am sorry to hear of Woody’s passing. I always had a good time with him and he was always in a good mood. I regret not having spent more time with the two of you. The Rocky and Bullwinkle festival was a real treat. I know your family will comfort you and I am thinking of you too. Love..Larry.

Our hearts are so sadden at this news. Ed has been a childhood friend since grade school. Many good and fun memories from when many of us lived at Chapel Hill Towers. Weekend trips to Kent in Woody's VW van as held us all and a few OSU/Michigan games were very memorable. Friendship still continued though marriages and adding to our families watching them grow up. A few family trips together and weekend family parties always good times. Woody's laugh is forever in our hearts.. He was so proud of his family and always smiling when speaking of them. A good person that will be missed Prayers of comfort to all the family members. OH....IO...……... GO BUCKEYES

Cheryl, our prayers are with you and your family. My father's nickname was also "Woody" so we are both different but still chips off the ol' block (Wood)
He raised a wonderful daughter and he will always be in your memory.

I shared some great holidays with Uncle Woody! I do not recall a time he was ever unhappy! He always wore a smile no matter what. He was a great guy with a witty personality. He was fun to be around.
I was in his and Aunt Cheryl's wedding. I remember during the ceremony how much he smiled!
Uncle Woody shared birthdays with Brendan, the father of my children who passed away over 2 years ago. We miss him every day!
May you rest in peace Uncle Woody. Have a shot and a beer with Brendan! You were loved by many and will be sadly missed by all!
Lots of love and hugs to the Family and friends.

My thoughts and prayers to the family. I grew up with David. (Our backyards joined at their grapevine!) I knew his parents and Merilyn. Many great memories.
