R.I.P Larry \"Woodie\" \"The Lobsterman\" Wood
« on: August 05, 2012, 05:33:43 AM »
07/28/1950 ~ 08/01/1950

Some of you will remember Larry from the old Forum. He was originally from Windsor, Vermont, the birthplace of USA Constitution. He rented our Argao property in 2008 and moved there with his wife Dhelma and her sons. In Argao he raised fighting cocks from eggs and did well in the derbies and selling them. His cocks came from the world over.

Larry was a Viet Nam vet and came home with his back filled with shrapnel. This gave him problems all the rest of his life.

Last May 2011 he went to Manila to have the lower vertebrae fused, the 1st of 3 operations. Up til then he had refused to do this but he almost couldn\'t ride his bike any more and had lots of pain.

He\'s also diabetic and after the 1st operation he went in a coma for over 1 month. He was transported back to Cebu in June 2011 and had been bed-ridden since then. He never recovered form the coma, but Dhelma said that he would make a few hand movements to her.

Larry passed away Wednesday. I\'m sure he was ready to go! He was a very good man!

He looks so young to have to pass on. May he rest in peace.
:) Happily married since 1994 & live part of the year in Cebu and the rest in S. Florida.

He looked very familiar Billy, I seem to remember meeting him at the French Baker the day I first met you in person, am I correct? My memory is not the best and if you remember I had even forgot meeting you that day.  :(   :blink:

Life is all too often way too short, so we all need to enjoy life the best we can while we can. If I believed my doctors then I would have already been gone but they say maybe I am too stubborn to pass on  :P  so I do my best to enjoy every day I do have.

BTW that is why I refuse to get my back fixed, I only have one good disk left in my lower back and one good one left in my upper back so I live on Aleve.
