Elwood C. “Woody” Erbstoeszer, 101, of Endwell passed away on Thursday March 29, 2018. Woody was a unique man. He was the most pleasant and fun loving person. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was an Endicott Rotary member for over 50 yrs. He was retired from IBM. He volunteered at the BC Open and then the DSGO until he was 98 years old. Woody was predeceased by his first wife Betty and his only child, Steven. He then married Lenelda (Nellie) and inherited three stepchildren and their families. We have loved and enjoyed him since he joined our family. He is survived by Donald and Sara Kinch, Gary and Marian Kinch, Linda and Bob Cragle and nine grandchildren and many great grandchildren. We will truly miss him. Thank you to Dr. Harris, Susie and Sara at Endwell Family Physicians for their many years of great care. Thank you to Absolut Care and all their great care for the last month. Special thanks to his roommate at Absolut, Jim Wayman, for watching out for him.

To Woody's family I thank you for loving and caring for him especially these last two years. I have known him since I moved into the house across the street, when I was just four years old. So many memories spending time with Betty, Mrs. Scowden, Steve and Woody. Mrs. Scowden was my babysitter, they took care of me when my father had open heart surgery, went to the Ice Capades in Syracuse and the many gatherings/parties at their home. Had a crush on Steve, such a fun guy. Of course I spent time with Nellie and Woody when I was older. Woody really loved Nellie. Just years of memories I will always cherish in my heart. Susan Wolf
