Woolard, Daniel D. – Obituary

Baker City, Oregon

Daniel D. Woolard, 59, a longtime Baker City resident, died May 31, 2001, at his home.

His funeral will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Chapel, 1500 Dewey Ave. Pastor Neil Castle of the First Church of the Nazarene will officiate. Burial will be in Mount Hope Cemetery. Visitations will be for family only.

Mr. Woolard was born on Sept. 26, 1941, at Jackson Hole, Wyo. As a child, he moved to Silverdale, Wash. He served his country with distinction in the U.S. Army while stationed in France.

After his tour of duty, he moved to Baker City in 1978. He had been the owner and operator of Woolard’s Drywall since 1983. He was active in the Baker Elks Lodge and the National Rifle Association.

He was an avid sportsman who loved fishing, hunting, camping, boating and four-wheeling. He was a loving man, loved by all who knew him, and he loved life to the fullest.

It is said that a measure of one’s life can be seen in the number of friends he has. If this is true, Mr. Woolard’s life cannot be fully measured, according to his family. He was one of those rare individuals who had the character and charisma to make friends with anyone he met, they said. Even greater is the fact that he would do anything for a friend in need, whether the need was spoken or unspoken.
“The world is a lesser place with the loss of Danny, but all who knew him are richer,” they said.
Survivors include his wife and soul mate, Linda; brothers, Tommy and William; sister, Maralee; sons, Eric, Brent, Bryan, Josh, Kenny and Sean; and grandchildren, Adrienne, Breanna, Jacob, Josh, Jonathan, Donald, Joey, Nick and Alex.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Elks Meadowwood Speech Camp through Gray’s West & Co., P.O. Box 726, Baker City, Ore. 97814.
