In memory of
Woodard John Frank
John Frank Woodard of Jefferson City, TN passed away on Saturday, August 8th. Frank was born in Huntsville, Alabama, on March 7, 1934, where he was a star basketball player and bowler. Before moving to Jefferson City, Frank served a tour in the US Army and worked at Huntsville Utilities. He moved to Jefferson City to begin working with Appalachian Electric Co-Op. He remained a dedicated employee with the company for 25 years before retiring in January of 1997. Frank was an avid fisherman and loved fishing on Cherokee and Douglas lakes, where he would often catch a bass (or four). He was hard pressed to share the locations of the many fish beds he would build with friends during fall and winter. Frank also enjoyed watching football and basketball, especially when attending games at Neyland Stadium with his wife Emily, despite maintaining a love for the Alabama Crimson Tide. He was loved by many for his beautifully grumpy nature, and everyone knew he always had a story to tell. Anyone who knew him knew how well the name given to him by his grandchildren, "Grumps," suited him due to his stubborn nature. Frank is preceded in death by parents, Robert and Bertha Woodard and wife, Emily Woodard. He is survived by daughters, Tracy, Carey and Kristy; and grandchildren, Drew, Reagan, Natalie, and Melanie. At this time, the family is planning to hold a Celebration of Life at the Woodard home at 1828 Paul Drive, Jefferson City, on Saturday, September 5th from 3 to 5 PM. Please stop by and join in sharing fond memories with the family. In lieu of flowers, please make a charitable contribution to Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency. To donate by mail, please send your check or money order payable to TWRF, to: Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation, 5000 Linbar Drive, Suite 275, Nashville, TN 37211.
