1950 – 2013
Barry John Woods was born on July 6th, 1950 in Nelson BC, and passed away suddenly at his home on June 8th 2013. Barry is pre-deceased by his parents Joyce & Leonard Woods. He is survived by his loving wife Arlene, son Scott (Gev) and daughter Michelle (Joe), his sister Kim (Troy), sister Lori, brother Dana, Aunt Peggy Denny and Uncle Eric Denny, as well as countless friends, nephews, nieces, neighbours and family.
Barry grew up in Nelson and Ymir, before marrying his sweetheart in April 1977. Barry worked many jobs through-out his life and maintained a very strong work ethic. Even after he retired several years ago he stayed as busy and as active as he could by cutting lawns and tending to gardens at countless locations in Nelson. Everyone who saw his garden could appreciate his meticulous passion for it.
One of his greatest passion’s was his children, and wife. He was so proud of them. He will be terribly missed by everyone he touched through-out his life.
A celebration of life will be held at Barry & Arlene’s house at #35-1554 Granite Road on Saturday, June 15th at 1pm.
