    Mr.Woods was a disciplinarian.for every body.He could punish his students right in Kitui town when found loitering and then ferry them back to school.

    I was in Kitui High School but we feared Mr.Woods more than some of our Kitui School teachers.

    May his soul rest in eternal peace.

    I worked with Robert Anthony Woods at the Diocese of Lodwar from 2006 to 2015. He was our Chancellor, and together we sat in a number of Diocesan boards of management ; St Lucy’s school for the visually impaired, St Luke’s home for the hearing impaired, St Teresa’s pastoral Center, Kakuma Mission hospital, Ewoi program, Social Ministry amongst others. Tony was selfless and worked with true passion. He had a soft heart for the needy, actually his tougher pick up truck became an hearse which once in a while he stepped in to support needy villagers unable to ferry their dead relatives back home for burial from the Lodwar hospital. When Sr Rosetta (MMM) passed on, Tony formed a medical fund which we used to support needy medical students in Turkana, about 300 students benefited and are currently working as medics in Turkana and other places.Many are wonderful stories and incidents we shared together. Fare de well Tony, Till we meet again!
