Eric Joseph “Joe” Woodworth, age 52 of Parkers Prairie, MN passed away Saturday, August 7, 2021 surrounded by his loving family after a long battle with cancer.
Joe was born Charles Joseph Pell in Cass Lake, MN to Joseph Clem Pell and Francis Morris. Joe was later adopted by Dennis and Christina (Lee) Woodworth. After graduating from Parkers Prairie High School, he had a son, Dustin Joseph whom he loved. He then met and married Pepper Saltzman a few years later. Together they had a son, Raven, but Joe’s free-spirited nature would lead him to many different places.
Joe loved to travel and meet new people. He was an amazing guitarist and tattoo artist and enjoyed fishing and driving on country roads with the windows down and the music loud. He would help anyone, and if he was your friend, he was a great friend to have.
Preceding Joe in death were his biological parents Joseph Pell and Francis Morris; his brother Kevin Olberding; and his oldest son’s mother Tracy Johnson.
Surviving Joe are his parents Chris and Denny Woodworth of Glen Allen, MO; his sons Raven Woodworth and Dustin Woodworth of Perham, MN; his daughter Stormi Woodworth; his brothers Steve Woodworth of Duluth, MN and Bill Pell of Onigum, MN; his sister Melissa Woodworth of Willmar, MN; his ex-wife Pepper; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
Joe was loved by many and will be missed.
