He was preceded in death by a daughter; Mary Angela Woodard, and his parents; Oscar and Bessie Woodard.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years Joyce Woodard of the home
His sons; William Eric "Tinker" Woodard, Jeffery "Jeff" (Brenda Levi) Woodard, Edward Scott (Dianna) Woodard
5 Grandchildren; Jason, Miranda, Timmy, Angela and Aaron
One Great Grandchild- Aiden
In lieu of flowers the family asks that you share in his generosity by making donations to the Jackson County Council on Aging, 100 County Services Park, Sylva, NC 28779.
