David Woodard Obituary, Wilson, NC, A Life Lived with Passion and Purpose – (2024) Death Notice

Death: David Woodard Obituary – The passing of David Warren Woodard, Jr., a resident of Wilson, took place in a tranquil manner on the morning of Sunday, March 24, 2024, surrounded by his devoted family. David received his high school diploma from Ralph L. Fike and his college degree from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where he was a member of the Zeta Psi fraternity of the university. Following the completion of his legal education at the University of North Carolina, David went on to get a master’s degree in taxation from the New York University School of Law.

David’s work as an attorney spanned over half a century, and throughout that time, his honesty, sharp intellect, and caring personality served as a guiding force for a multitude of individuals, guiding them through both successful and trying times. The fact that he had lived in Wilson his entire life made him extremely enthusiastic about the expansion and improvement of his city. Coaching his daughters in soccer, cheering for the North Carolina Tar Heels, and reading a good book on the porch in Morehead City were all activities that brought him a great deal of delight.

He leaves behind his wife, Rocio, as well as his children, Julian Michael Chavez, Vanessa Lizeth Chavez, Jaqueline Esperana Woodard Chavez (whom he adopted), and Xenia Rut Miroslava Carrizales Chavez, as well as his two granddaughters, Madeleine Chavez and Aileen Chavez. His son Benjamin Woodard, his sister Shirley (Don), and his sister-in-law Louise Woodard, as well as a large number of nieces, nephews, and cousins, are among those who follow in his footsteps. His parents and four siblings, Diamond Joe Jr., Lee, Ann, and Nancy, all passed away before David. David was followed in death by his siblings.

David’s stern demeanor was the perfect complement to his tall stature of six feet eight inches and his boisterous voice. To the contrary, he possessed a tender heart, particularly for his family and his dog Jack. Both his family and his friends will regret his passing. On Tuesday, March 26th, at eleven o’clock in the morning, a memorial service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Wilson, North Carolina. In the aftermath of the service, there will be a reception. After the funeral, the body will be laid to rest in the Fort Gibson National Cemetery, where Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home will be in charge of the arrangements and care. At the service, the following individuals will serve as pallbearers: Don Crum, Larry Lane, David A. Woodard, Jeff Woodard, Stephen Woodard, and Phillip Woodard among others.
