Woody Randall Smith, 77 of La Crosse, passed away Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at his home.  He was born March 28, 1941 to Clyde and Martha {Ball} Smith in Vance County, North Carolina.

He is survived by his brother, Carson Smith of Montana, and many other loving relatives and friends.

Woody is preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Tommy Junior Smith and Willy Larry Smith.

Woody was a colorful man and marched to his own beat.  He referred to himself as a “rascal” and knew he had a certain charm that could get him out of anything.  He was a true outdoorsman with his love being hunting and fishing and spending time outdoors.

Woody worked for the Cooler Company as a foreman and also was a driver for Air Freight.  He will be missed by his many friends in the area and his family.

A Celebration of Woody’s life will be held Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 2:00 PM in the Prairie Room at Coulee Region Cremation Group, 133 Mason Street, Onalaska.  Visitation will be held from 1:30 PM until time of services. In lieu of flowers the family asks memorial donations to be made to the Wounded Warriors Project.

    Woody was a great woodsman! I was privileged to be in hunting camp with him several times. He always livened up the group. He was very passionate about the outdoors. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family and friends.
