Douglas Woodbury, a resident of Charlotte, NC, and a Pittsburgh, PA native, faced many challenges in his life that made him a better person but after a battle with COVID 19 the master saw it fit to end the battle and release him of the fight by taking him onto Glory at 6am on January 16, 2022, a snowy winter day. His passing proved a man whose influence went further than one could imagine leaving families and friends to rejoice in the memories of a life well-lived.
Douglas’ legacy will be forever cherished by his wife Lydia Woodbury, his mother Kathryn Sellers, his mother-in-law Lucy Dennis and father-in-law Joseph Dean, stepchildren; Andnesio Howard and Dana Thompson, grandchildren Olivia Thompson, and NiMarie Wright; siblings Kimberling Woodbury, Michael Woodbury, Kevin Woodbury, Christina Bennett (Charles), Andrea Matthews (Michael) and Elijah J. Sellers and their families.; his aunt Margaret Young; brothers-in-law Daniel Dean and Paul Dean, sisters-in-law Reba Dean, Tracy Dean, Wendy Dean-Henry and their families. Preceding him in death was his father Elijah Sellers and sister Lorraine Lewis. The network of memories is far reaching with a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Our beloved Douglas was a lover, best friend, son, brother and friend to many and will be missed!
