My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Stalter Family most especially Chip and Carol, Bev , Betty. Woody was a fine Gentleman always putting God and his family above all else.
I enjoyed his roaring laughter, his kindness, and hearing many stories of his and his sweetheart Helen's adventures . He had a heart of gold for all. I will miss watching the birds and smelling the roses with him.
I am truly blessed to have had the honor of knowing him. He will remain dear in my heart forever.
With Love and much Respect, Annette

Chip, Bev, Betty, and all Grandchildren,

I just want you to know that we all were sorry to hear of Woody's passing. We enjoyed looking at the photo gallery; what a handsome man! I forgot that dad was in their wedding. I know that you all will miss him; he was a great family man and loved all of you dearly.
