Bob was born and reared on a farm in Climax, Ky., the son of Thomas and Nannie Mullins Woolery. The farm is where he learned the value of hard work and dedication to his family.

He worked at the Bucket Factory and for different companies over the years having retired from Calumet Construction in 1996 where he worked as a heavy equipment operator. Bob was a member of the Hope Community Church in Lebanon and enjoyed the fellowship very much. He is survived by his children Bill (Diana) Woolery of Lebanon, Bud (Diana) Woolery of Lebanon, Donna (Robert) Trafford of Lebanon, Linda (Gary) Payne of Lebanon and Tommy Woolery of Indianapolis; 15 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; infant daughter Kathy Ann Woolery; siblings Alberta See, Charles Woolery and Fannie Olgesby. Family and friends will gather on Friday, Nov. 16, from 2 p.m. until the time of service at 4 p.m. with the Rev. Billy Watts and Rev.
