Rick was born in Mount Vernon on August 17, 1959, the son of Donald & Eloise ‘Sis’ Woody. He was raised in the upper Skagit Valley and attended grade schools in Lyman and Hamilton and graduated from Sedro-Woolley High School with the class of 1978.
Rick worked for 20 years as a cook at several Skagit County restaurants, then as a produce clerk at Fred Meyer grocery for the past 20 years. He enjoyed fishing, reading and video games, but mostly driving his 2013 Camaro 2SS, which he lovingly called Breathless.
Rick is survived by his parents, Donald & Sis Woody of Punkin Center; brother, Nicky Woody and his wife Claire of Snohomish; sister, Vicky Woody-Guidinger and her husband Richard of Lyman; nephew, Steven Woody and his wife Reasa and their children McKenzie and Porter of Bothell and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Thanks to all the wonderful people for the support that was given to Rick and his family.
A Potluck Life Celebration gathering for Ricky will be held on Saturday, February 23rd from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the American Legion Hall in Sedro-Woolley. Bring your favorite dish and stories to share. Private family interment was held at the Lyman Cemetery.
