Woodrow Inman was born on October 24, 1926 in Dillon South Carolina to the late William Nathaniel and Iola Graham-Inman. He departed this life at the age of 95 on Thursday January 6, 2022 at Princeton Medical Center in Princeton, NJ.
After receiving his education in the Dillon County School System, he joined the U.S. Army where he was a veteran of WWII and received an honorable discharge.
Woodrow (Woody) later relocated to Trenton, New Jersey and began his work career. Even though he worked for several companies he was an entrepreneur at heart. Early in his career he fulfilled one of his goals by opening Blue Star Restaurant. Many years later after finally retiring from Goodall Rubber Company the entrepreneurial spirit hit him again and he opened Woody’s Auto Service which he operated for several years. While all these accomplishments are notable, the most important milestone in life was his decision to dedicate himself to Jehovah and to symbolize that dedication through baptism.
Woody was an avid reader and had a great passion for studying books related to the law. Anyone who knew Woody understood that you better be on top of your game when he asked you a question. He was a good listener and enjoyed having spirited discussions. He loved his family and always gave very practical and sound advice to his children. Woody always encouraged others to always look on the bright side of things. Even though the challenges of old age had started to take a toll on his body he always kept a good sense of humor and expressed his gratitude to everyone who visited him.
