Re: Loss to NAXJA

A true original he was.

He was a calming presence and a reassuring leader during tumultuous BOD times. A great resource when I was Colorado Chapter prez.

Take care Don.

Indeed he was!!!!!

"He was a calming presence and a reassuring leader during tumultuous BOD times."

Lets hope that rubbed off on many of us.

Re: Loss to NAXJA

Never had the pleasure of meeting him in person. Interacted with him on the web many times and thought of him as a friend. RIP Woody.

Re: Loss to NAXJA

Great guy. First met him at Tellico in '02 I believe, and we wheeled together a few times after that. He was always entertaining to watch on the trail and the Rich Mountain ride back in '02 (or was it '03?) wouldn't have been nearly as memorable without him.

Rest in peace

Rest easy Don. My prayers go out to you and your family. I'll miss that southern accent of yours...

Re: Loss to NAXJA

Met him at NACfest '04, kept in touch sporadically, traded a few parts. Was great to see him again in Moab in '08. Like many ns that I consider friends, but don't see nearly enough, it was easy to resume our friendship as if we'd just seen each other last week.

And that southern accent couldn't hide an intelligence and wit matched by few on , or anywhere for that matter...

His memorial service is Tuesday at 7:00 at Lighthouse Assembly of God 8361 NC-24, Carthage, NC 28327. I talked to Beth this morning at Kennedy Funeral Home. They only have the ability to take checks by mail and credit cards. If anyone wants to help in his families expenses you can send a check to:

You can call in a donation at:

A shock indeed, Woody was a good man and did much for , always willing to help. I will miss the time spent on the trail with him.

Godspeed, Woody.

Loss to NAXJA

The family has set up a paypal account to help with expenses. Currently they are 4k short in just the funeral expenses alone.

Mandylou24@excite.com

Remember no fees with friends and family donations.

Woody's granddaughter said he loved this club.
