July 29, 1940 – December 15, 2015
Ted Woods passed away on December 15, 2015 in the presence of his loving family. He was previously predeceased by his loving wife Joan (Ashcroft) in 1995, and his mother, Jean Woods (Lac La Hache) in 2012. He is survived by his children Glenn (Naomi – Noah, Nolan), Earl (Ranj – Tessla, Brandan, Kianna), Tammy Matsuda (Stewart – Nathan, Wesley) all of Kamloops.
Ted began his career with Greyhound and then started his own trucking company with a Mack truck which was named “Hush Puppy”. His passion for driving was shared with both his boys. The family grew up in Ashcroft and spent many leisure hours camping and boating out at Green Lake, BC. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing.
The family is very grateful to the staff and residents of Westsyde Care Home for the past 18 years of Ted’s life. The love, care and friendship he received from all the people who cared for him with music, his outings and assistance with day-to-day tasks was very appreciated.
The family would like to express their sincerest thanks to Dr. Paul Farrell, staff at RIH and Westsyde Care for making Ted’s last days comfortable.
Finally, thank you to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice and Schoenings Funeral Home for all their help at the end.
No service by request.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Westsyde Care, RIH, or Kamloops Hospice House.
