Robert F. Woods, Jr. Portville, NY Robert F. Woods, Jr., 66, of Portville, passed away Tuesday (December 13, 2022) at the Olean General Hospital emergency room after a courageous battle with cancer. He was lovingly cared for by his family over the course of his illness and was compassionately cared for the medical staff at the hospital emergency room. Born October 2, 1956 in Niagara Falls, he was the son of Robert F. Woods, Sr., and Florence (Stahlman) Folts who predeceased him. When Bob was 18, he met Shelly (Fisk) Haynes, the love of his life. Ten years later on April 6, 1985 they married and recently celebrated their 47th anniversary. He was a graduate of Olean High School. Bob had a strong work ethic and was a steelworker in Florida until his retirement in 1992. They then moved back to Portville to enjoy retirement. He always enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid fisherman and hunter. He loved to have his family together for outdoor fun such as frequent bonfires, cookouts, and 4-wheeling. He always put others first and made his family and friend’s happiness his #1 priority. His grandchildren and great grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he talked about them continuously. Everyone, family, and friends, loved how he found humor in so many things. He will be sadly missed by his wife Shelly; their 4 children Robbie Haynes of Portville, Tina Carpenter of Port Angeles, WA, William Haynes, Jr. of Bradford, PA, and Kimberly Woods (Robert) Putt of Olean; many loving grandchildren and great grandchildren; 1 brother William (Chris) Woods of Olean; 1 sister Bonnie (Kevin) Ruggles of Newport, TN, and many nieces and nephews.
