Fishers Hero Honored on Memorial Day - A special Memorial Day service took place at the gravesite of Amos WOODIN, a soldier of the American Revolution, in Bushnell Basin Cemetery. Members of the Fairport American Legion and Legion Auxiliary, the Bushnell's Basin Boy Scouts with Perinton Supervisor Lake Edwards, Perinton Historian Mrs. Charles BUTLER, the Daughters of the American Revolution and others, along with Mr. and Mrs. Arthur WOODIN and daughters of Brighton and Mr. and Mrs. George WOODIN of Weidman, Michigan descendants also participated.
The obituary of the soldier from the Rochester Republican, of November 3, 1842 read as follows: " At Victor, Fisher Road, Fishers, Ontario County on the 19th of October last, Amos WOODIN at the advanced aged of 90 years.
He was a native of Mass., took an active part in the war of the Revolution and is at length gathered to his fathers full of years. He served his country faithfully in the times that tried men's souls; witnessed the surrender of Burgoyne at Saratoga; was in several engagements with the enemy and received as he deserved in common with the warm and true hearted patriots of that day, the gratitude of a free people. As a man and a citizen he was upright, honest, industrious and virtuous; and he has left behind him a name which is as precious ointment. He was above all a Christian, a soldier of the Cross and died in the faith, and has gone to his reward. Having outlived his General, and weary of this present life, and longing for a better, he welcomed the approach of death and "Like a shock of corn fully ripe," was gathered to his rest. The Court Martial then in session, paid a becoming respect to the memory of a solder and patriot of a bygone age, by adjourning to attend his funeral, and commit his body to the dust. Soon indeed, will the last of that Nobel school of patriots have gone beyond the reach of a nation's gratitude and who will take their place."

VICTOR - Town Supervisor T.D. Coots was killed last night when the car he was driving slammed into a concrete bridge abutment on Brownsville Road here. Ontario County coroner Dr. Charles Bathrick pronounced Coots dead at the scene. The 32-year-old supervisor died from multiple fractures and internal injuries, said Bathrick. No autopsy will be performed, he added.
Sheriff's deputies said Coots was driving north about 10:50 p.m. when the vehicle drifted onto the west shoulder of the road, traveled 62 feet and struck the Thruway bridge abutment head-on.
Coots, a funeral director, was trapped in the tan-and-black hearse for 35 minutes before being freed by volunteers from the Victor and Farmington fire departments who used a mechanical extrication device, deputies said.
Brownsville Road is a narrow paved highway running from the village to the hamlet of Brownsville. The road was dry, deputies said. Coots, who lived at 26 Maple Ave., operated the Cotton Funeral Home.
H« was completing his first two year term as supervisor. Recently, town Republicans nominated him to run for a second term in November
Authorities are still investigating the accident, said Chief Deputy Robert Kleman. "He left the road gradually. There were no skid marks and there doesn't seem like there was any defect in the vehicle. Usually, if a tire blows, a car leaves swerving skidmarks.
"His wife said he had just had work done on the exhaust system and he was taking the hearse out to test it. What happened, we may never know," said Kleman.
Coots' death shocked his colleagues on the Ontario County Board of Supervisors this morning. "How do you comment on something like this? It's a very tragic thing", says Hopewell supervisor, Philip Oestreich, "He was a very active person. He was pleasant to work with, that's all I can say."
"I considered him a very close friend and associate," said Manchester Supervisor, Rae Walters Herendeen. "He was very devoted to his family and his job."
Board chairman Wesley Payne commented, "How can you say anything at a time like this? T D. was conscientious, a good supervisor ... It's so untimely."
Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. tomorrow and Friday at will be a Masonic service at 8 p.m. Friday. The funeral will be at 10 a.m., Saturday at the Victor Presbyterian Church. Burial will be in Boughton Hill Cemetery at the convenience of the family.
The family requests no flowers. Memorial contributions may be made to the Finger Lakes Easter Seal Society, in care of William Butler, 1542 Ridge Road, Ontario Center, 14520; the Pediatric Heart Fund, in care of Dr. James Manning, 401 Elm wood Ave., Rochester, 14642 or the Victor Farmington Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
