Woody was a manager at AT&T Wireless for 27 years before retiring in 2015. Prior to that, he worked in the zinc mines in the Center Valley area. Since retirement he worked part time for Scott Auto Group. He particularly loved this job due to the number of people he met while driving their courtesy shuttle.

Woody was a kind, gentle and loving man who was always willing to offer his help to one and all. He found great joy in cooking and baking for his friends and family. He loved music and attended both the original Woodstock concert as well as the 40th anniversary celebration. Woody was very passionate about sports and on any given game day he could be found in his favorite chair cheering on his beloved Eagles, Flyers or Phillies. Most of all though he loved his family and taught them many of life’s lessons with patience and infinite passion.

He is survived by his wife Yvonne; daughters Ami Egan (Tom Egan) and Emily Edmondson (Jon Bremner); stepdaughters Pam Edmondson (Al Barchini) and Debbie Edmondson; stepson Tom Olewine (Marie Olewine); sisters Deborah Levy (Michele Pressman) and Dolly Bilger (late husband Jack Bilger).
