In Memoriam

Southern Arizona, Tucson, and the Citizen Diplomacy Alliance have lost a vital, insightful and delightful friend.

We stop to remember Charles T. (Punch) Woods, a member of our Advisory Committee and longtime active member of the Alliance through the years.

As the former Executive Director of the Community Food Bank, he was ardent advocate for the hungry and often forgotten members of our region.  As an active member of the Alliance, Punch and his wife Casey hosted, fed, entertained, chauffeured, and forged lasting friendships with visitors from around the globe.  

He is survived by his wife, daughters, grandchildren, and a grateful community.
