Tony Woods – Rest in Peace

By Margaret Sheard ….

We were shocked and saddened to hear the news that former TRNC resident Tony Woods had passed away on Sunday 3rd February.

He had not been well for a few weeks but his sudden death was unexpected and a shock to everyone.

Many people will remember Tony, who came to live in the TRNC in January 2002, following many previous holiday visits, and his departure back to the UK in September 2015.

Tony will be remembered for his support of Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR), he played Father Christmas every year except one, when he suffered ill health, and was always at the Dog Shows photographing and writing about the events.

He also was very active with Kyrenia Amateur Dramatic Society (KADS) with their radio programmes and stage performances.

Tony was a prolific writer and with his vast knowledge of Cyprus history, he wrote articles for newspapers and magazines during the time he lived in North Cyprus.

In recent years Tony has been very helpful with information for various topics on the CyprusScene website and he also worked with me on a story about the military life of his father – Major George Samuel Woods, who received the MBE in 1953, Tony and his sister Elaine accompanied their father to Buckingham Palace.  This also included some information about Tony, to read this interesting article click here

We are not aware of the funeral arrangements at the moment, but assume this will be in Somerset, to where he returned in 2015.

Rest in Peace Tony

    • Thank you, I am pleased you liked what I wrote and so sorry for your loss. Tony will be missed by many and remembered for all the good things he did, both in North Cyprus and I am sure in the UK also.
