VicWoods was a GREAT mentor to me in my years with Lowe's Co in Franklin, NC. The Alvin Crowe Builders Co., Mr. Woods taught me how to properly measure roofs on all types of buildings, and to bid and figure materials for them ! He helped me with other construction projects, too. His knowledge in the building business was impeccable. He is a man I will always remember and respect. I always appreciated his quite demeanor. It was such a pleasure to see him in a shop while he was in Franklin. A GREAT man of God, whom I respected and missed, ever since I retired. I know the Highlands community and the family will miss a great man ! Prayers and Blessing for a life WELL lived !
