In Memoriam: Judge Robert K. Woltz

Judge Robert K. Woltz served on the circuit bench in Winchester for 21 years until his retirement in 1989. He died March 22 at the age of 88. Colleagues and friends told the Winchester Star (registration required) that the judge was a man who was fair and courteous and a man who loved the celebrate the annual Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. While some judges liked to move quickly through a trial, Judge Woltz loved the courtroom so much that he didn't mind long case, one friend said.
