On the morning of Thursday, September 14Tth, 2017, Daniel D. Woodward of Troy passed away quietly at Bradford County Manor. He was 93 years of age. Born August 24th, 1924 on the family farm in Ward Township, Tioga County Pa., he was the son of John and Minnie (Rudy) Woodward. Dan grew up as the typical farm boy who was well accustomed with hard work. He was endowed with a strong work ethic which served him well throughout his life. Besides his own family farm he worked at several neighboring farms. As an adult Dan was employed as a machine operator at Schrader-Bellows, the Belmar Company (where he met his wife, Louise) and Swayze Folding Box Co. He was known for his great sense of humor and for being a jack-of-all-trades. He was an accomplished wood worker and enjoyed building bird houses and Christmas decorations. Most importantly he was an all around family man devoted to his wife and children.
Dan is survived by his wife, the former Louise Wesneski, at home, sons Roger (& Judy) Woodward of Canton, Scott (& Nichole) Woodward of Troy, daughters Carol (& John) Landon of Canton, Donna (& Jeff) Bleeker of Sayre. 12 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-granddaughters as well as nieces, nephews & cousins.
