Woody was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. His love for his Lord and family were very important to him in his life. He was a parishioner of St. Anthony Catholic Church and served as an usher for many years. He was a School Bus Driver for Terrebonne Parish School District until his retirement. Anyone who knew Woody knew he loved listening to the radio talk shows, including Rush Limbaugh, he enjoyed cutting grass, proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy, and loved LSU - GO TIGERS! Woody leaves a beautiful family behind to carry on his loving, caring, and heartfelt traditions. May he have eternal life and peace in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Family would like to Thank all the staff of TGMC, Acadian Ambulance, doctors and staff of Heritage Manor for their care and compassion.
