Ronald B Woodland

Oct 18, 1942 - Feb 03, 2024

location-icon

Belmont, MA

Ronald Woodland, 81, passed away on February 3rd 2024 surrounded by loved ones. Born in 1942 to parents Olive and Victor Woodland, one of Ron’s earliest passions was for astronomy. Olive often told stories about little Ronnie sneaking out of their house in Waltham MA to stare up at the stars through his new telescopes. All this stargazing only fueled Ron’s enthusiasm for the world and everything in it. From meticulously hand-crafting his own telescopes, to building his own houses, to flying sailplanes and skydiving, to singing in numerous musical groups, to playing perfect renditions of greensleeves on one of his dozen recorders, to going on nature and birding hikes, to petitioning to have street lights dimmed so the nighttime stars shone brighter, to sharing his vast knowledge of astronomy in classrooms and planetariums and beyond, Ron always demonstrated an immense capacity for life. In his later years, faced with mounting health concerns, Ron never closed off from life and the people in it. Instead, he inspired many by continuing to open and to grow, showing that real growth has little to do with the condition of the body, and everything to do with expanding your heart and mind to take in—and embrace—all that life has to offer. Ron, predeceased by brother Lawrence Woodland, leaves behind three sons—Andrew, Matthew, and Nathaniel—and three grandchildren—Emily, Harrison, and River. A celebration of Ron’s life will be held Sunday February 11th at 2PM at the village church in Cummington for people who knew him. In lieu of flowers, we welcome donations in Ron’s honor to the National Audubon Society. To to the family or in memory of Ronald B Woodland, please
