My deepest sympathy to all the family and friends. Woody was a kind and generous person, willing to help everyone (even young, inexperienced geologists like me). I remember Woody's smile and laugh when I would come into his office with a hair-brained idea.. then he would cock his head and pause to think.. He would always think.. and then give sage advice. He was always open to ideas and was never condescending to young geologists. I continue to look to him as a model for kindness and integrity.
Woody: Thank you, Sir, for all you taught me. We miss you, but your legacy lives on in the many people you taught, advised and worked with. God Bless.
