It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved John (Jack) Ralph Woods on Sunday, November 3, 2019 at the age of 73. Cherished husband and soulmate of Cathy Georgiadis. Ex-husband and dear friend of Laura (Charles) Dollimore. Beloved father of Aaron (Sarah) Woods & Danna (Neal) Woods. He will be greatly missed by his grand children; Sean, Keira, Logan, Sam & Rowan who thought the world of their Grampy. He will be sadly missed by his beloved sister and friend Diane (Serge) Arsenault, as well as his nieces; Louise Rosko, Linda (John) Fairfield, Darlene (Dan) Osborne, Donna (Dave) Welsh, and nephews; Barry Woods, Brian (Anna) Woods, Mark Woods, and Kevin (Susan) Weeks. He will be sadly missed by his brother and sister-in-laws as well as his nieces and nephews from Laura's side and by his large network of friends. Jack was predeceased by his beloved sisters Betty and Joan, and recently, by his older brother and hero Eugene. Jack was a great ambassador for the game of golf and got a lot of pleasure in helping others improve their game. He loved music, and was a lifelong fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Blue Jays. Following in the footsteps of his father (Harvey), Jack was very proud of his 40-year career with Noranda Mines, and especially of his fathers’ contributions in the early years (casting of the first copper anode and implementation of hanging-brick furnaces to name a few.) But above all, Jack was proud of his children and adored his grandchildren with whom he would have loved to spend a little more time. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his memory, to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer society.

In 1971 at CCR R&D I met Jack Woods and Serge Arsenault and later Cathy Gieorgidas. Long time ago, our condolences to Cathy and family as well as the family of Serge Arsenault.
In the tank house I met Jack again, always ready even in the summer moist heat.
I will keep him in my souvenirs.

I was very shocked and sadden by the news of Jack's passing. I will
cherish all the memories we had together and with all our golfing buddies, for the last 25 years. He was our idol and inspiration for the game. Jack was a great man, always talking about his family and especially about his grandchildren which he adored. He will be greatly missed by all of us. My deepest sympathies go out to Cathy, Aaron, Danna, and the rest of the family.
