David “Buck” Wojdag, 64, longtime Upton resident, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, May 17, 2018, in the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial VA hospital after a short, but courageous battle with ALS.
David will be sadly and deeply missed by all his many friends and family but perhaps most by the animals he loved and cared for. To all who knew who him, David he was a quiet and caring individual with a great sense of humor who was able to touch the lives of all who met him.
David was born and raised in Walpole, MA. A son of the late Edwin J. Wojdag of Upton and the late Mary Connolly (Wyatt) of Sarasota, FL
A military veteran having served in the U.S. Army, Dave was responsible for driving and repairing tanks in Germany during the early 1970s. He was also the recipient of the sharpshooter marksmanship badge.
Dave was a hard-working, self-employed carpenter known for his unique barn building style. All the barns he built were not only beautiful, but constructed to guarantee a safe, comfortable home for any animal.
Although Dave was a quiet, unassuming guy, he was as compassionate for his friends and family as he was for his animals. Dave enjoyed spending time with his friends and family either golfing at Shining Rock, visiting at Wong’s or camping with his horses and friends. Our hearts are all broken without him and he will never be replaced.
David was the brother of Edwin E. Wojdag and his wife Diane of Upton, John Wojdag and his wife Alanna of Bellingham, Mary Ellen Nowe of Venice FL, Bryan Wojdag of Upton, the late Russell Wojdag of Sarasota FL and stepson to Janet Keay Wojdag of Upton.
David was also the beloved Uncle and Grand-Uncle to 17 nieces and nephews who will miss visiting him and his animals.
His memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 2, at 11 AM in the Williams-Pedersen Funeral Home, Inc., 45 Main Street, Upton.
An hour of visitation will be held prior to his memorial service from 10 to 11 AM.

The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to Edith Nourse VA Hospital Hospice Unit in Bedford, MA, for the exemplary care provided to David and his family.
