William “Bill” Elmer Woodworth, age 63, of Branson West, Missouri, passed away December 28, 2019, at home with family by his side. He entered this life January 30, 1956, in Oconto, Wisconsin, the son of George and Arlene (Westscott) Woodworth. Bill was preceded in death by his parents and son, Terry Wiklund. He was joined in marriage to Mary Ponder on October 4, 1980. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.

One of the great joys in Bill’s life was coffee. He didn’t go a day without his daily brew of coffee. Bill passed his time by listening to country music and woodworking. He enjoyed watching stock car races. Bill was a ray of happiness for his family and will be missed.

He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Mary Woodworth; son, Ronnie Ponder of Branson, Missouri; son, Patrick (Tasha Gurule) Wiklund of Branson West, Missouri; son, James Wiklund of Cameron, Missouri; seven grandchildren; and three brothers: Duane Woodworth, Dale Woodworth, and Pete Woodworth, all of Wisconsin.

A celebration of life will be planned for a later time. To leave an online condolence, please visit
