    worked for Tooele Army Depot for the remainder of his carrier. David traveled the world as a
    Red-eye missile specialist and was very respected in his field.
    David’s greatest passion was his wife Caroline whom he called “the love of his life”. His family
    was most important to him and we never questioned his love and loyalty.
    A great day was 18 holes of golf with friends. Puttering in the yard and around the house.
    Dad always made everyone he met feel appreciated and welcome. He would say “if you leave
    here hungry, it’s your own fault”.
    David (Woody) will be missed by so many. Our hearts are broken and we look forward to
    seeing him again. We have no doubt there is a very happy reunion on the other side.

    Uncle Woody, thank you for your kindness and example of manhood. Always calm, always ready to help, always ready to laugh, always kind. One of my favorite memories of you: My family was in Utah during one of the many times we passed through. Summertime, noonish, at my favorite aunt and uncle's house. Uncle Woody came home from his second job wearing the Texaco Star on his short-sleeved shirt. Biceps that looked like they were going to bust the sleeves. Getting some lunch and then back to work. A man's man. Strong and determined. I'll look forward to that day when its my turn to enter into the rest that those who trust in Him will be gathered in unspeakable joy. I'll be looking for you, too.

    - "Kavin"
