Obituary

WELLS ME.
Robert E. (Bob) Woodman, 90, a longtime resident of Wells, passed away suddenly at York Hospital.

Bob was born September 25, 1930 in Effingham, NH, the son of Kirtland C. and Dorothy Sprague Woodman. Moving to Maine at a young age, he left school early to work with his father in the woods cutting lumber.

He was drafted into the US Army as the United States started responding to hostilities in Korea, serving with distinction before receiving his honorable discharge.

Bob married Constance (Connie) Matthews, and they made their home in South Windsor, CT and Frostproof, FL, while maintaining their lifelong home in the Highpine area of Wells. He owned and managed several mobile home parks in CT, FL and MA.

He enjoyed woodworking and was known for his unique picture frames and toy boxes for his grandchildren. He loved feeding and watching the wildlife behind his home, and finding work to do with his tractors, which he really enjoyed operating. He simply never met a stranger as he found a way to relate to anyone he met. Bob will always be remembered as “Bumpa” by his grandchildren and for his earnest and sincere devotion to his family and his many kindnesses to friends. His grandson-in-law, Marc, summarized it best: Bumpa was truly a wonderful man, a tremendous father and grandfather. We promise to find a way to keep Bumpa’s memory with Beckham beyond his middle name. I have the utmost respect for his hard work and dedication to his family and loved ones, his generation truly is beyond reproach. I am thankful for the times we were able to FaceTime with him over the last 4 months and we will forever “take care of that baby now you hear” as he lovingly requested.

Bob is predeceased by his wife Connie Matthews Woodman, and his siblings.

Survivors include his children Timothy R. Woodman of South Windsor, CT, and Denise M. Mosher and her husband Tim of New Madison, OH, his dear friend and companion Janice M. Albison of Wells, adored grandchildren Kayleigh Johnson-Toomey and her husband Marc, Dallas Robert Johnson (Riley Jones) and Ashley Woodman, a new beloved great grandson Beckham Woods Toomey, his good friends Sheila Hills, Mark and Beverly Langevin and several nieces and nephews.

The family encourages donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105 in his memory as this was one of his preferred charities.

A graveside service will be held on Friday, November 6, 2020 at 1:00 PM at Ocean View Cemetery, Wells, ME.

Wicked good times in Maine. Beautiful place with beautiful people. I am grateful to have met you and will forever enjoy the smile and the way Kayleigh’s face lights up when she speaks of you and tells stories of her childhood.

Connie Woodman was my mom's cousin, but they were very much like sisters. The High Pine friends and family were always close by and Bobby was a kind man always willing to help out. He was a pall bearer at my grandmother's funeral. Connie and Bobby were family and I remember visiting them in Connecticut over 60 years ago when I was four or five years old. I always looked to see if Bobby was on his tractor when driving by his house. Just a nice man. The photo I have attached is from my niece's wedding. From left to right is Roger Pepin (Mom's boyfriend), Shirley Welch (my Mom), Connie Woodman and Bobby Woodman.
