A Note from Woody's daughter

Cindy, Woody and Penny
Dad passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Feb. 11th here in our home while visiting with us since Christmas.  He was happy to be back in his element as he was working around the events of the Super Bowl. I am absolutely heartbroken, but so thankful and blessed for the time we were able to spend together, and that God allowed him to be with us when He decided to call him home. 

While here, Dad told us that he had joined the Catholic Church and attended Mass at a local church here.  We have arranged to have a Memorial Mass for him on Saturday, March 10th at 12pm at The Shrine of the Little Flower located at 2100 W. 12 Mile Rd.  Royal Oak, MI 48073  There will be an opportunity to visit with the family in the church 30 min.prior to the service. 
Gail Gotthelf has graciously offered her home for a reception immediately following.  Her home is located at 20105 N. Greenway St.  Southfield, MI  48076

There will also be a gathering at his favorite watering hole, The Inn Place 917 N. Main St.  Royal Oak, MI  48076 and I will keep you updated on this.  I have created an "event" on his FaceBook page and plan to get his Obit in the Detroit Free Press this week. 

Dad will later be buried next to his parents, where he grew up in the Heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia.  Greenhill Cemetary in Churchville, Virginia.  Arrangements with St. Paul's United Methodist Church still need to be finalized. 

Please feel free to forward this information and also contact me with any questions or comments.
Paul and Penny Robertson Buechter  4464 Diamond Ridge  Greenwood, IN  46143 

He leaves behind three grandchildren, Christopher Buechter, Caleb and Elizabeth Heck, and my sister, Cindy Heck (div.).

Thank You,
