From the day he was born, he made it a point to live a full, happy and adventurous life. He worked hard as a Meat Cutter, and retired from his own business (Woods Abattoir) in 2002 per his doctor's orders. He took up truck farming, which came naturally to him, having learned everything farming related from his Father. He shared and sold produce to local communities. He was not a man of large physical stature, but his personality was big and he never met a stranger. His most happy and adventurous times were when he was a Scout Master for Troop 35 in Commerce. Sharing his love, knowledge, stories about life, and camping with all the members of Troop 35 were some of his happies memories. He was recognized and given many awards for his leadership of Scout Troop 35. Per his request he was cremated, and a private memorial will be held at a later date. No visitation or flowers at this time. Donations in his memory can be made to the ASPCA (Humane Society). Little-Ward Funeral Home, Commerce is in charge of arrangements.
