Gerald A. Woods, Jr

April 14, 1948 — July 17, 2015

George A. Woods Jr., 67, of Winfield Township passed into the arms of his Lord Friday at Butler Memorial Hospital.
He was born April 14, 1948, in Natrona Heights, a son of Roberta Seminko Woods of New Kensington and the late George A. Woods Sr.
George was a 1968 graduate of Tarentum High School, going on to earn a degree in auto repair.
He was disabled veteran who served as a machine-gunner in the U.S. Army 1st Air Calvary during the Vietnam War. George was wounded in Vietnam and received the Purple Heart for bravery in action when he went into the line of fire to get ammunition for his squadron. George will be remembered for his strength and courage.
He worked for Shoup Bronze in Tarentum, Conrail of Pennsylvania and Pullman Standard of Butler before finally entering his life-long career at the New Kensington Post Office, where he enjoyed being outside and interacting with his customers on his route. George retired from the post office in 2006.
