I was privileged to learn from Dr. Woolsey during my time at Houghton 1974-1976.   I have been to two seminaries since and still consider him among the top three Bible teachers I ever had.

I had the privilege of being in Dr. Woolsey's classes as I was in the class of 74-78. I am praying for the family as we love his daughter Ruth Strand and her lovely husband. May God give you peace during this time.

I had the privilege of getting to know Warren and Ella when we're served in Sierra Leone as missionaries in the 1960's some of the most gracious and kind people I have ever known.
They were big encourages to us as new missionaries.
To me, Warren Woosley was a Gentle Giant of the the Christian Faith, a special  missionary colleague and a warm-hearted brother. I am highly honored to believe he considered me his friend . He was my friend who will stay in our hearts and memories.

Dr. Woolsey was the kind of professor whose very presence in the classroom made you hungry to walk closer to God in your faith.  His courses on Early and Later Pauline Epistles and Life of Christ were favorites of mine.  Lectures always ended too soon when the bell rang, leaving me hungry to know all the material in the notes he did not get to cover.  Heaven welcomed home another of God's saints.

I was in all of Dr. Woolsey's Missions and New Testament classes (77-79) and still have all of my notes and textbooks. He was so knowledgeable, but so kind and helpful as well. My prayers go out to his family.

Esteemed professor, advisor to those of us leading Houghton Foreign Missions Fellowship, personal counselor—and example to my wife and me who also served in missions for 25 years.  
I appreciated his ability and willingness to listen, to ask insightful questions and to challenge by his life as well as his words.    May the Lord comfort each of you family members and thank you for sharing your father, grandfather . . . With us!

Mrs. Woolsey and family,  Though I graduated from Houghton in 1960, I was privileged to have had Dr. Woolsey for the required ethics course which he taught, possibly when on a furlough from Wesleyan World Missions.  He was an outstanding professor, an awesome thinker, and a very godly man.  His impact on me included many exposures over the years, as I attendee Ministerial Institutes and even pastored briefly in his District.  I wish I had gotten to visit with him in recent times, but Heaven gives us future opportunities!
