Dear Lane, Jesse & family,
I first met "Chip" at Lake Park Baptist School when he brought Jesse to my class. We shared many chats at the Pre-K door that year. He was an adoring dad and we laughed about classroom antics. We also shared a common bond , our love for Marshall University. GO HERD! I want you to know that I send my deepest condolences to the family. I know he will be missed!

Dear Mrs. Lane and Family,
I am one of those changed and impacted recipients of Dr. Wooding's teaching. My time with him was at PBA from 1985 -1989. Though my steps and calling did not take me into school education, it took me into my Masters of Religious Education involving Church Recreation and Administration. He was a foundation stone on my path to what Christ had called me to do. For the last 30 years in Churches, I have been doing that each day. He will be remembered for his wit, humor, side stare (what are you even talking about look), and his deep encouragement to NEVER give up.
Thoughts and prayers to you and family. Hallelujah as Doc has gone to his Savior.
Taking Faith To The Field,
Rev. Rusty Asble
Pastor of Recreation Administration

What wonderful memories I have from working with Chip for 15 years! He always made me laugh! He was a great man, who had a tremendous influence on his students as well as his colleagues. I was genuinely blessed to know him and his beautiful wife, Lane.

The two of us were the full time PE professors. Our "office" was an old, dilapidated two story house that was held together because "the termites were holding hands," according to President Rhea. If I wore heels, they would poke holes in the floor. There were two bedrooms upstairs which were converted to our offices. They were separated by a jack and Jill bathroom, so we always had to let each other know if it was occupied. Fun times.

His hearty laugh will forever be a cherished memory.

Prayers for comfort and peace for Lane, his son, and his family.

I fondly remember lunches with Chip in the faculty lounge at Palm Beach Atlantic University. We shared many laughs about the foibles of teaching and life, in general. I don't ever recall seeing Chip without a smile on his face, suggesting an invitation to join him in a good laugh.
May Chip's soul rest in peace and may he now enjoy smiling with the Lord.
