A Message from Reeve Richard Kidd, On behalf of myself, Council and the Township of Beckwith, I would like to send our sincere condolences on the passing of Ab Woods to his wife Mildred, sons Steven and Greg, daughter Cyndy and the rest of their family.
I first met Ab when he worked for the Township of Beckwith and my father was on Council in the 70’s. He was the Road Superintendent for Beckwith before being hired by Tom Cavanagh as his right-hand man on construction. Almost every road built and reconstructed in Beckwith has had Ab’s oversite or input which has led to our high-quality road network. This is the legacy that Ab has left us and that we would like to thank him for.
Ab was a backwoods gentleman with an engineering degree in common sense. Ab was a great mentor for his coworkers, many road superintendents and Councillors including myself. Ab will be missed by all.
Our thoughts are with the Woods family at this difficult time.
