BLUE HILL – Walter Lawrence “Doc” Woods died Oct. 17, 2005, at an Ellsworth healthcare facility. He was born Sept. 12, 1912, in Rockland, the son of Charles Orcutt and Florence Nellie (Candage) Woods. He descended from members of the founding community at Blue Hill Falls. Doc attended schools in East Blue Hill and Brooklin. During the depression he worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps, building carriage roads in Acadia National Park. He was a lifelong lobsterman and one of the founding members of “The Barnacle” restaurant. “The Barnacle” was a popular place fondly remembered by many. Doc was one of the first Christmas tree/wreath wholesalers sending truckloads of greens to Long Island, N.Y. He worked for A.B. Herrick and E.L. Shea and later started a dock and mooring service business. Doc spent many pleasant hours making boat models. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, gardening and hunting. The Woods spent 26 winters at their home in Lakeland, Fla., where he enjoyed friends, golf, shuffleboard and ushering at Tiger Stadium – even though he was a devoted Red Sox fan. Doc was a member of Blue Hill Lodge IOOF No. 79 for more than 60 years and a former member of the Blue Hill Country Club. Walter is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Hilda Pauline Chapman Woods; daughters, Sandra Marriner and Janice Prior-Crofoot, both of Blue Hill; grandchildren, Christopher Marriner of Palmetto, Fla. and Candace Marriner of Bucksport; great-granddaughters, Kyra and Rebeccah Marriner. He is also survived by many friends who loved him as a family member. He was predeceased by his parents; sister, Erma B. York; brothers, K. Earl and Harry S. Woods. There will be a celebration of his life at a later date. Interment will be at Seaside Cemetery, Blue Hill. Remembrances may be sent to Scholarship Fund, Blue Hill Lodge IOOF No. 79, P.O.
