He lived in Darby, Pennsylvania until moving to his home in Broomall in 2000. He retired from Gateway Rehabilitation Services in 2014. Woody was an avid bowler, enjoyed hunting in Potter County, PA, and loved spending his summers with his family and friends on the Delaware shore. Woody was a kind and unassuming man who touched everyone he met. He will be remembered for his witty sense of humor and unyielding generosity. These traits, as well as the relentless love he possessed for his family, fueled his unremitting strength and perseverance as he fought his illness for years.
