Another bike builder passes...

The biker world just lost a great guy and an excellent bike builder. http://www.milwaukeeiron.com/item.as...=0&Backlink=No. Gary was on the show Southern Steele, which many of you may have seen, since rods and bikes go hand-in-hand. I only knew him from the show, but I hoped to meet him some day. I know he will be sorely missed by the Milwaukee Iron shop in Lynchburg, Va. and many others. Ride on Brother... Ride on.

That sucks. I remember him, he was the best guy around in the shop there. Amazing metal working skills and a hilarious guy too.

That REALLY sucks. He was my favorite personality on Discovery. He was really the only one that was shown to have metalworking skills. They showed some of his ideas , which the average guy could do in his own shop.

Rest in peace Gary !!! Hope your final resting place is full of four leaf clovers !





Anyone know HOW he died?

My thoughts exactly. Of all the shows I like Southern Steel the best just for the fact that when they had a deadline they could all still work and joke around. Gary will be sadly missed.

BTW...I did find a copy of the obit but nothing stating of what he passed away from. I thought he was older than 52 also.

Gary David Woodford
Gary David Woodford, 52, of Spout Spring, passed away Sept. 27, 2005. For 31 years he was the husband and best friend of Holly Underwood Woodford.
He was a son of Delia (Betty) Elliott Woodford and the late Reginald Woodford Sr.
Gary worked for Milwaukee Iron as the master fabricator for 22 years and was a leading cast member of the Discovery Channel show, Southern Steel.
He is survived by his three brothers, Reginald M. Woodford Jr. (Terry), Ronald Blakely Woodford, and Troy Edward Woodford (Angie); a sister, Vanessa W. Murrell (Mike); many nephews and nieces; including three special nephews, Daniel Tabor, Justin (Jr.) Gunter and Russ Gunter; and a special niece, Brooke Woodford; his beloved dog, Penny and many friends and admirers.
The family will receive friends at Robinson Funeral Home, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, 2005.
A celebration of Gary’s life will be announced at a future date.
Condolences may be sent to www.garywoodford.com.

Found this in a posting from Clubchopper.com
