Carl Wayne Woodward, 82, of Ivanhoe passed peacefully from his earthly life on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at NorthChase Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
He was born February 16, 1937, the son of the late Guy Edward and Theresa Bland Woodward.
Wayne is survived by his devoted wife of 57 years, Mary Ivy Woodward; daughter Rhonda Woodward Harvell and her husband, Stan; son, Kenneth Wayne Woodward; grandchildren, Carly Harvell Shepard and her husband Brian, Kendall Harvell and his fiancée Marisol Lopez, and Marshall Woodward; extended family and friends.
Wayne served his country proudly in the National Guard of Virginia and US Army Reserves. For many years Wayne was a faithful member of Haw Bluff Baptist Church.
He was a man of faith, a devoted husband, loving daddy and granddaddy. Wayne’s main mission in life was to share the Gospel of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In sickness and in health Wayne’s faith in Jesus Christ never wavered. As long as health permitted Wayne was an avid hunter and fisherman, but his real pride and joy was his 1931 roadster Model A car. Wayne’s joyful Christian spirit on this earth will be missed. Amongst the legacies Wayne leaves are the importance of God, Family and Country
