The fragile nature of life often reminds us of the bonds we share, bonds that are sometimes broken far too soon. It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we share the passing of Woodson Leroy Armstead from Topping, Virginia on September 10, 2023. A beloved figure in our community, his memory will be cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

His legacy is remembered through his devoted wife, Virginia Armstead, and their children: Chuck Armstead, Gina Bartle (Barry), and Joey Armstead. His love extended to his step-son Dave Hayden, step-granddaughter Mandy Hayden, and parents, Willie and Elizabeth Mitchum Armstead. The joy Woodson found in his seven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, two step-great-grandchildren, and three step great-great-grandchildren was palpable, painting a picture of a man who deeply loved his family.

To honor Woodson’s memory, there will be a visitation on Saturday, October 7th, 2023, at 1:00 PM at Harmony Grove Baptist Church, followed by a celebration of his life at 2:00 PM in the same venue. Those wishing to commemorate Woodson’s life are encouraged to contribute to the Harmony Grove Baptist Church hospitality fund, in lieu of flowers. It’s a testament to Woodson’s spirit that he supported hospitality and togetherness, even in his passing.
