Rev. H. Earl Woodall died on Wednesday, May 3, after 87 full and productive years.
Born in Benson, NC, he graduated from Davidson College and earned his Bachelor of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, VA.
With his wife June, he served Presbyterian churches in Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. He preached the gospel, connected with people of every station, and conducted successful building programs everywhere he served, including erecting the first building for the Cooperative Christian Ministry of Concord, NC. Even on the day of his death his attendants marveled at his good humor.
Earl and June celebrated 56 years of marriage before her death in 2010. Their home was a warm place of welcome and refuge for relatives, travelers, and sojourners from all over the world.
Later in 2010, Earl entered into a joyous marriage with Margaret Morrison Woodall lasting until her death in early 2017.
Earl leaves one brother, Dennis (Statesville, NC). He leaves two sons, Dr. Hunter Earl Woodall with his wife Sylvia (Anderson, SC), and Rev. Henry Woodall with his wife Beverly (Wasilla, AK). Grandchildren are Ruth Harbin (Danny), Paul Woodall, Alan Woodall, Anna Ruddell (Nick), and Isaiah Woodall.
Services will be published at a later time.
Memorials may be sent to Cooperative Christian Ministry, PO Box 1717, Concord, NC 28026.
