He married Marian Edith Hallows Woods on December 5, 1949. Marian preceded him in death on December 30, 2005. Together they had two sons, David Eugene Woods and Kenneth Lee Woods. Kenneth preceded his father in death on September 11, 2016. Bob was drafted into the United States Army in 1946 and served in Korea until 1948. He was very proud to earn the rank of Sergeant and serve his country. Bob worked for Stark Bro’s Nursery and later worked for Hercules, Inc. for 35 years before retiring early to hunt, trap and travel with his late wife, Marian. During his years at Hercules, Bob was very involved in the OCAW 5713 Union, serving as Vice President. When Bob and Marian’s grandchildren were young, they enjoyed spending time with them and often served as chauffeurs, picking them up from school and running them to all of their different activities and friends’ homes. Bob was an outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, trapping, mushroom hunting, and riding around on his four-wheeler and ranger with his sons, and a dear friend Gary Branham. Bob also enjoyed teaching a special nephew, Tylier, how to hunt and trap. They also spent a lot of time riding around on his acreage in Lincoln County, Missouri, which was a very special place for him. Bob was very thankful for a special niece, Julie Richardson, who spent so much time caring for him in his last few months. Bob was a member of the First Baptist Church of Louisiana, MO. He is survived by his son, David Woods (Marilyn), his daughter-in- law, Donna Jenkins Woods, all of Louisiana, MO, his granddaughters, Heather Durbin (Steven) of Osage Beach, MO, and Whittney Lee (Kris) of O’Fallon, MO, his great grandchildren, Laura, Wade, Bennett, and Evelyn Durbin of Osage Beach, MO, two sisters in-law, Louise Carlberg, and Jayne Woods, both of Louisiana, MO, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
