He started out as a bag boy and advanced to management at bi-lo with 37 years of dedicated service. 

 

He also worked at John Deere and Bridgestone.

 

He wanted his service to be a celebration of his life. I am sure he would be honored if we all wear Gamecock colors.

 

I can hear him saying GO COCKS!

 

Those he left to cherrish his memories are his wife Dianne Martin Pittman; a daughter, Jenny Perkins-Haney (Jason); one son, Thomas Perkins (Deana); and grandson, Gaven Thomas Perkins, all of Blythe, GA; brothers, Carleton A.

Bill will also be remembered for his quick sense of humor. He always had a joke to tell. He loved putting models together and actually won a 1st place ribbon at the Georgia-Carolina state fair for it. He entered a contest in a magazine to write a story. The next magazine came out and his story was published. He named it Stick ball. It was a short story about him and his brothers playing ball with that stick.

 

Gaven was his world , they had a very special bond.  He wanted us to make sure Gaven would remember him and we will.

 

I would like to thank  Dr Miriam Atkins and the Augusta Oncology staff for taking care of him.

Affinis Hospice was great.  Lee and Kitty  were awesome. Thank you!

 

And last but not least a huge thank you to our daughter Jenny who was with me every step of the the way.  I couldn't have done it without you.

Mr. Nicholas "Imago"  Woodward

Mr. Nicholas "Imago" Woodward

February 7, 1993 - September 2, 2019

Nicholas Dangelo Woodward, 26, was born February 7, 1993. Nicholas, a resident of both South Carolina and Florida, died unexpectedly on Monday, September 2, 2019. 

 

Nicholas was born in Detroit and started his journies down south in 2002 with his family.  Nicholas was the son of Victoria Woodward and Shane Fuller. In addition to his parents, Nicholas is survived by his siblings, Shana Woodward, Sydney Woodward, Tyler Eanes, and Curtis “Bo” Freeman. He was the grandson of Alvin and Barbara Franklin, Carolyn Fuller, Elizabeth Jordan, and Gus and Annice Woodward. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and long-time friends. He is preceded in Death by grandfather Clyde Fuller, great grandmother Barbara Ware, great aunts Winifred Hill, LaTosca Naomi Stanton, and Aquanetta Woodward Allen and dear family friend Linal Darden. 

 

Nicholas was a young man full of life and dedicated to having a good time. He loved being around friends and family. He talked often of his adventures with best friends Tarik, Rajah, and Dom. He was the life of the party and loved to show off his dance moves. If you knew him well or barely at all, he always left you thinking. Sometimes it was about a deep fact of life, or why he insisted on sporting some type of bandana, but mostly it was “what was in his cup?” In his free time, Nicholas could be found in some type of fierce Pokémon battle or playing games like Kingdom Hearts or Dynasty Warriors on his PlayStation or beloved Nintendo DS. He was also a very talented artist. He would hunker down over a sketch pad, tongue in cheek, drawing anime characters or dragons or making up his own animated drama.   

 

Nicholas will be remembered for his gentleness and kindness. Everyone he met described him as a natural charmer despite his wish to be seen as a rogue pirate. He was heard saying he wanted to live like a pirate and have a “short but pleasurable life.” We all believe he had just that. 

 

Services for Nicholas will be held at Intention Church (Causeway Baptist) in Tampa, Florida on Monday September 16, 2019 @ 11 am. All friends and family of Nicholas are invited to attend. There will also be a Sunset Celebration of Life on the beach of Anna Marie Island a day after services.

Becky was born in Bloomington Illinois on September 7, 1922, to the late parents of Francis Carter and Walter Wagner.  She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who had many varied interests in life.  Becky’s sense of humor, style, perseverance, and selflessness was undeniable.  Her family devotion will be missed beyond measure as she impacted many lives.  As Becky would say, “I’ll see you in the funny papers.”

Her athleticism was portrayed in many sports such as track/field, tennis, golf and bowling. Her determination drove her to fight for America during WWII with the U.S. Naval Reserve (WAVES) as a Yeoman stationed in Washington D.C. from 1943-1945. At times she would perform with the Navy traveling troupe as a singer. 

Becky was a talented artist in oils & pencil drawings. This talent was prevalent as a caricature artist sketching lady Angus cattle for various cookbooks. This eye for aesthetics was further displayed as a model for local charities.  Her poise and eloquence manifested in fashion show narration as well.

 Becky & T.A. lived on an Angus farm in rural Avon, IL then later resided in Cave City, KY and Grand Mound, IA. Her leadership became evident during her service to the Angus Auxiliary as State of Illinois President that led to being elected 1974-1975 National Angus Auxiliary President.

Memorials may be made to the American Angus Auxiliary (1615 Van Zandt County Road 3416 wills point, TX 74169 attn. Cindy Ahearn American Angus Auxiliary President).
