Woody was born in Seattle Washington December 6th 1945 to Gladys and Tyler Williams. After graduating High School Woody joined the Air Force spending his time there as a medic. As a young man he enjoyed skiing, skydiving, hunting and travel.
Woody then began a successful career at the Boeing Company doing every type of driving job- from fueling airplanes on the flight line to chauffeuring dignitaries, and was presented with the “Million Mile” award for driving accident free for over a million miles.
During this time Woody married and had two children, Tyler and Cameo. Although married life didn’t work out, Woody remained an involved father making time for family vacations and road trips with his kids.
Other special trips included Australia, Chile and South Africa along with backpacking sections of the Pacific Coast Trail in Washington with his cousins.
Upon retirement, Woody moved to rural Eastern Washington near Oroville with his 4 hunting dogs to keep him company. He always loved dogs and was truly their best friend. A lifelong hunter and outdoorsman Woody enjoyed his 20 acres of land on the river, and the solitude of the area. Woody remained an avid skier and continued to ski with son Tyler in Washington, Canada and Chile.
Woody was preceded in death by his father Tyler and mother Gladys. He is survived by his children Tyler and Cameo and his sisters Carole and Barbara (Tom). The family has planned a private Memorial.
