    Guy Thomas Woodward, son of L.H. “Woody” and Ann Marie Woodward died March 13, 2009 at the age of 50.

    “Tommy”, as he was fondly known by to his family, was born in Moab on Sept. 20, 1958 at Allen Memorial Hospital. He graduated from Grand County High School in 1976.

    Guy was a sweet, funny, and loving brother, dad, son, uncle and friend. He loved the out-of-doors, music, yard work, fishing, hunting, making jewelry, heckling his sisters, and being a part of Narcotics Anonymous. Guy’s three daughters were the jewels in his crown; the best accomplishment of his life.

    “Tommy” was the “baby of the family,” and would never let his siblings forget the power he held over them. He derived his nickname of “Bugsy” from a little rabbit farm he had in his backyard, growing up as a boy.

    Guy was a jack of all trades. He could fix anything, liked things where they were supposed to be, was charming, charismatic, and had a sense of humor matched by none.

    He is survived by three daughters, Aarika Diane, 20, of Albuquerque, N.M., Codi Marie, 18, of GalIup, N.M., and Sarah Rose, 12, of Moab. He is also survived by his brothers, K. R. Woodward, and L. D. Pete Woodward, sisters, Leslie (Bill) of Phoenix, Ariz., and Suzan (Pug) of Moab.

    Aarika is attending her third year of nursing school at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, Codi is graduating from Gallup High this spring, and Sarah is an accomplished student and athlete at Helen M. Knight Intermediate School.

    He is preceded in death by his father, Woody, his mother, Ann, and his older brother, Max. There will be a graveside service at 2 p.m. at Sunset Memorial Gardens (new cemetery) on Thursday, March 19, with a potluck luncheon at the Old City Park immediately following the service.

    It was an honor to have known him. He will be missed terribly.
