Edward Woiccak Obituary

Edward Robert Woiccak, age 81, of Wolfeboro, NH passed away in his home on Wednesday March 20, 2024.

Ed was born April 6, 1942 to parents Joseph Woiccak and Connie (Geroski) Woiccak and later raised in Highland Falls, New York. He graduated from Highland Falls High School in 1960 and later received a BS from the School of Forestry at Syracuse University in 1965. After graduating from Syracuse, Ed pursued a law degree from Catholic University in Washington, DC. Upon graduating from Catholic University, Ed served in the U.S. Air Force at Pease Air Force Base, Portsmouth, NH from 1969-1975. There he was a member of the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. During this time, Ed had been married to Marcia Chilson Gillis and they had two children together. After his discharge in 1975, Ed practiced law in the Seacoast of NH and continued to write Supreme Court briefs well into retirement.

Ed is survived by his wife and best friend, Terri Spinney, as well as his children; daughter Holly Dubay and son, Ted Woiccak and Terri’s daughters Tiffany Spinney, Samantha Boston and Laura Anderson. He has a sister, Mary Woiccak and is predeceased by his brother, Robert Woiccak. He was also blessed with 9 grandchildren; Shannon Woiccak, Gabi Woiccak, Jacob Dubay, Justin Dubay, Brynley Boston, Madison Anderson, Mason Anderson, Noah Spinney-Hernandez and Andrew Schweitzer.

Ed cherished time with his family and enjoyed fishing with his grandkids, playing UNO or any games the kids wanted to play. Always young at heart, he was always up for playing and his grandkids adored him. He also had a silly sense of humor and was even making jokes with the nurses during time spent in the hospital.

Having always had a deep appreciation for nature, Ed enjoyed outdoor activities such as canoeing, hiking, and sailing. More recently Ed and Terri have become avid bird watchers with particular interest in Bald Eagles. They would spend hours on Lake Winnipesaukee cruising around and checking on all the nests. Ed had also recently begun to explore the rail trails in and around Wolfeboro on his Ebike, taking long rides and stopping to take photos and enjoy the beauty around him. A special time of day that he always looked forward to was sitting on the back deck at the end of the day with Terri, enjoying his afternoon coffee and watching the many birds that visited their feeders.

Ed was one of the kindest and most patient people you could ever know and he had a gentle soul. He seldom raised his voice, always remained calm in any situation and made everyone around him feel at ease. Everyone who met him loved him and he will be remembered for his kindness, his smile and how he made people feel loved. We will miss him immensely.
