Elmer W. “Woody” Wadsworth, 94, passed away June 14, 2011, at Anderson Inn in Camden. Born in Concord, Vt., on April 14, 1917, he was one of three sons born to John M. and Amy (Reece) Wadsworth. He grew up in Camden, was a 1935 graduate of Camden High School, and served in the U.S. Army. He worked for National Cash Register in New Jersey for several years before returning to Camden where he was employed for many years at Camden National Bank, retiring as a vice president. In 1961, Woody married Pearl J. Jackson in Camden and they enjoyed 50 years of marriage. They moved to Venice, Fla., in 1980 and in 2006 moved back to Camden.

Woody was an avid golfer and enjoyed playing at the Rockland Golf Club in Maine and in Florida with his many good friends. He had great passion for Big Band and jazz music, and his wife, Pearl, the love of his life; he enjoyed socializing with family and friends. He will be remembered for his great sense of humor, the twinkle in his eye, and his big smile.

He is survived by his wife, Pearl of Camden; two sons, Glenn Jackson and his wife, Cynthia, of Brewer and Thomas Jackson and his wife, Hillary, of Camden; two grandchildren, Heidi Jackson and Megan Jackson; a great-granddaughter, Natalie Jackson; a sister-in-law, Ida Wadsworth Phillips of Venice, Fla.; a nephew, Jim Wadsworth; three nieces, Pat Griffith, Pat Brown and Anne Wadsworth; and many great-nieces and great-nephews.

He was predeceased by a son, David Jackson; two brothers, Charles M. Wadsworth and Orion R. Wadsworth; and a sister-in-law, Barbara Wadsworth.

A graveside service will be announced later this summer to be held at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Camden.
