Dear members, It is with great sadness, that I have to inform you that Alton Woodard, one of the founding, long time members of the NC Pecan Growers Association lost his battle with cancer yesterday, August 21.
I know that many of you knew him and bought trees from him or worked closely with him in the NCPGA. Those of you that did not know Alton, he was a true gentleman and someone that I always respected and enjoyed working with and knowing. Please keep his wife Faye, and family in your thoughts and prayers.
Alton’s funeral will be at Faith Free Will Baptist Church, 1200 West Grantham St., Goldsboro, NC on Saturday Aug 23rd. Visitation will be at 12 noon and the funeral at 2 pm. Burial will be at 4 pm at Princeton Cemetery. The obituary will be in the Goldsboro News Argus.
For anyone that would like to send a card the mailing address for Faye is 5194 US Highway 70 East, Princeton, NC 27569.
Alton was a good friend and will be missed by all of us that knew him.
NCPGA Administrative Assistant
