It is with deep regret that the Officers and Board of Directors announce the passing of life member Norman E. Woods. Norm was residing in Florida at the time of his passing.

He was the son of Norman E. Woods, Sr. and Martha (Carney) Woods. He graduated from Lynn English High School in 1961 and graduated from Lowell Technological Institute with a BS degree in electrical engineering in 1965. He also completed the University of Michigan's Public Utility Executive Program in 1986. He moved to New Hampshire in 1965 where he joined Public Service Company of NH. He had a long and distinguished career at PSNH and retired after 35 years. Norm served his community in so many ways. He was an active member of professional and civic organizations including Kiwanis, Lions, Rotary and numerous chambers of commerce. In his personal life he enjoyed sailing and was a past Commodore of the Little Harbor Yacht Club. Norm was an active Ham Radio enthusiast (K1INX) and fire buff. He enjoyed serving multiple towns as a firefighter and EMT. Judy, his wife, and Norm loved RVing in their Class A Motorhome having toured the entire lower 48 states. Norm was an incredible father, husband and friend to anyone he met. He enjoyed life every single day and always had an incredibly positive attitude. Family members include his beloved wife Judy of 40 years, his children Steven and Kimberly Woods, Kenneth Woods, Todd Woods; his step children David Hanlon and Cathy Hinzman, Edward and Tracey Hanlon, Carlene and Doug Stewart, Jennifer and Dean Lambert. He had 16 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. He also leaves the mother of his children Linda (Woods) Orosky and his brother Paul Woods and Diane Perrault. According to his wishes, a private family memorial service will be held sometime in June.
Rest in peace Norm.
