Rolfe Joseph “Joe” Woodruff, 74 of Saranac Lake (NY), passed away on Thursday evening April 30, 2020 after a long battle with multiple health issues.

Joe was born on July 5, 1945 in Dallas, Texas to Russ and Mary Woodruff.

Joe had a huge passion for riding and fixing his motorcycles as well as exploring the back roads while fishing and hunting. He loved traveling and had many adventures with so many close friends. Everyone who knew Joe loved him. But most of all he loved spending time with his grandchildren who were his pride and joy, a long-lasting memory and tradition for them all was blueberry picking when the season came around every year. He had passion for classic cars and loved driving his hot rod around town with the windows down. Joe also loved spending time at his favorite place in town, DJ’s Rustic Restaurant, a long tradition of Saturday morning breakfast that he’s since passed down to the rest of his kin. He made an impression on every person he met. He will be deeply missed by all.

Joe is survived by his sister Judy of Bloomingdale, His brothers Bill (Kathy) Woodruff of North Carolina, Bonnie (Bob) Macintyre of North Carolina, Wayne Woodruff of Saranac Lake, Ronnie (Sabrina) Woodruff of New Jersey, Janet (Terry) Varment of Saranac Lake, Mike (Laurie) Woodruff of Saranac Lake, and Eric (Jessie) Woodruff of Colorado. His long-time relationship with Marilyn Spencer of Saranac Lake. Joe is also survived by his children Mark Woodruff of Massachusetts, Brock (Jodi) Woodruff of Saranac Lake, Bly (Terry) Flyte of Lake Placid, Heather Moynihan of Saranac Lake, Travis (Nina) Woodruff of Washington, and Tye (Molly) Woodruff of Bloomingdale. His grandchildren Shiloh, Zack, Ariah, Harley, Jenna, Chase, Drake, Tessa, Gabe, Ava, Revin, Tullie, Ridge, Taelyn, Zona Joe, and one great grandchild Layken.

In addition to his mother and father, Joe was preceded in death by his wife Judy Woodruff of Saranac Lake.

Funeral arrangements are in care of the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home, 20 Church Street, Saranac Lake, NY. There will be no calling hours, the family has decided to throw a celebration of life party in his memory on July 4th 2020. Further information will be posted at a later date.

Joey worked for my father back in the 70’s. He was always so good to us kids. Always joking around and playing with us. Back then he drove a hearse that we were all afraid of! Many fond memories of Joe and my dad in “the shop”. My sincerest condolences to the family.

Some of my earliest memories are staying with Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Joe. He would always let me share the water bed with Aunt Marilyn, even if I peed in it every time. He always slept on the couch so I could be comfortable. He loved us little ones so much.
