EVERY CHRISTMAS, Woodrow Millhouse Sr. would buy a couple of cases of apples and oranges and pass them out to friends, family and whomever needed them.
Keeping the Christmas spirit like that was typical of Woodrow, who cared deeply about people and sought to help them whenever he could.
Woodrow Millhouse Sr., who seemed to thrive on the hard work of construction labor and grave digging throughout his working career, a devoted family man and church worker, died March 9 of heart failure. He was 92 and lived in West Oak Lane.
"He was a strong, determined, religious, loving, compassionate father and husband who had a great sense of humor," said longtime friend Ron Allen, co-director of community outreach for state Sen. Vincent Hughes. "He was a great provider for his family."
