Billy Woodward Obituary, Death – The heart of Eagles Way Church is heavy as it bids farewell to a stalwart member, Billy “Papa” Woodward. His unwavering commitment, infectious spirit, and profound impact on the church community leave an indelible mark that will resonate for generations to come. Billy’s quote, “I could not survive without the church. I can’t and I don’t miss unless I absolutely have to. I can’t live without it,” encapsulates the depth of his dedication to Eagles Way Church.

His presence was not just attendance; it was a testament to his unwavering faith and the significance of the church in his life. As a pillar, supporter, encourager, elder, friend, and affectionately known as Papa, Billy played multifaceted roles within the church. His generosity, faithfulness, and love touched the lives of everyone fortunate enough to know him. Eagles Way Church flourished under his guidance, and his legacy of kindness and service will continue to inspire and uplift the congregation.

Billy’s transition to his heavenly home marks the reunion with the love of his life, and we can imagine him dancing joyfully in the eternal embrace. While the earthly realm mourns his departure, the heavenly choir gains a devoted and enthusiastic member. A service to celebrate Billy’s life will be held on Thursday at 2:00 at Eagles Way Church, located at 100 Hudson Road in Griffin.

The family will be available at the church from 1-1:45 on Thursday. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that Papa be remembered through donations to the music ministry at Eagles Way—a fitting tribute to his passion for worship and the vibrant spirit he brought to the church. As Eagles Way Church navigates this somber moment, the congregation finds solace in the enduring legacy of Billy “Papa” Woodward, a true beacon of faith and love in their midst.
