Obituary Condolences

Michael Woolhouse "Big Wooly" 1963-2012 Michael "Big Wooly" Woolhouse, 48, died Wednesday May 2, 2012 peacefully at his home in Spofford, N.H. after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Newport, R.I., on December 4, 1963 son of the late William Henry Woolhouse and Cynthia Woolhouse Derensis and his step-father, Carlo Derensis. Michael spent years in the Automotive Industry and was a wonderful people person but was at peace working at home in his yard where he was an avid gardener. He was a wonderful and loving husband, father and grandfather. He will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife, Julie Woolhouse, his six children, Steven Tompkins and his wife Toni of Valdosta, Ga. Bryan Tompkins, Cory Tompkins and Coty Tompkins of Spofford, N.H., Zachary Woolhouse and Mikayla Woolhouse of Hurst, Texas. Four grandchildren, Haley Tompkins, Mackenzie Bond, Andrew Bond and Gracie Tompkins all of Valdosta, Ga. and many nieces and nephews and his loyal mates Greta and Oliver who stayed by his side during his illness. There will be a Memorial Service and a celebration of Michael's life held at a later date. The family asks in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the Windham County Humane Society, Brattleboro, Vt 05301 where we found his beloved Greta, our blindside. The Foley Funeral Home, 49 Court Street Keene, NH is assisting the family with these arrangements.
