William F. Woodside

William F. Woodside, 70, of Seekonk passed away on Friday, March 5, 2021 at Rhode Island Hospital. He was the husband of Ann-Marie (Adams) Woodside.

Born in Providence, he was a son of the late Gilbert D. Sr. and Eleanor R. (Arrighie) Woodside. Bill worked in law enforcement for the Town of Seekonk for fifteen years before he retired.

He was an avid baseball fan, and in his youth he was scouted by the Kansas City Royals. Bill most enjoyed spending time in the North Country fishing, hunting, and camping.

Besides his wife, he leaves two children, Jonathan Woodside and his wife Marcia and Lindseyann Woodside.  He leaves three grandchildren, and four brothers, Gilbert D. Woodside Jr. of Seekonk, Mark Woodside of Riverside, Scott Woodside of Attleboro and Jeff Woodside of Seekonk. He was the brother of the late Cheryl Barnhart.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 10:00 AM in St. Martha’s Church, 2595 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence.

Dear Ann, Jon and Lyndsey, So sorry to hear of your loss. I have great memories of going to North Camps with all of you. We had so much fun. Tons of laughs and lots of silly stories to share. The stories Craig has shared with me when he worked the same shift at the Police Dept. were always entertaining to say the least. We will miss his huge heart and enormous presence. Take care. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Linda and Craig
