Today we grieve, as heaven welcomed home a son of God, Randy Lamar Woods. Born in Metter, Georgia, September 8, 1960, to John Willis (Bud) Woods and Bobbie Jean Cobb Woods, he spent his entire life residing only minutes from downtown.
An avid fisherman, he enjoyed communing with nature and built a 46-year long logging business. He said there was nothing else he could think of that he wanted to make a career of. While spending the work weeks under the trees and many Saturdays with his rod and reel, he tried to keep Sundays for God. After an ill-fated decision to fish on “the Lord’s Day” once many years ago, resulted in a boating accident, he said he would never do that again. He made every effort to give God His day and could be found most Sundays in His house.
He was a man of integrity and believed that everyone should work for his livelihood and that there is no excuse for sorriness. He believed in doing everything to the best of his ability and when help was needed, he didn’t hesitate to lend a hand. Additionally, he always said that you can’t help someone that won’t help themselves. With these values, and much hard work, he was able to build a successful logging business after learning from and working with his father in a multi-generational trade. Harvesting timber was the way of life to raise and support many young Woods’ offspring through at least four generations. One of the hardest decisions he ever made was to close his business after becoming too sick to work.
During his last few months, he grew closer to God. He was able to let go of things that had built up in him and honestly say that he held nothing against and loved everyone. He could be heard praying nearly anytime. God showed him glimpses of heaven and he talked about the peace that he was looking forward to when he got there. He prayed for and preached to every visitor he had. He said he wanted no one to go to torment. There is enough of that here on earth---nobody should want to live in torment for eternity. Receive Jesus Christ!
If he had anything to stay in this world for, it would have been his family. He loved his family dearly and had special relationships with them all. He especially referred to his grandchildren as “his heart”. A man of strength and honor he was, and we will suffer great loss in his passing. Heaven is surely rejoicing at his arrival.
Preceding him in death are his parents, one brother, John Willis Woods Jr., three sisters, Kathryn Woods Deason, Flora Jean Woods, Dianna Woods Verraneault, one son, Wesley Dean Woods, one niece, Tracie Shalane Woods, and one nephew, Timothy James Deason, as well as numerous extended family members that he loved and missed.
Surviving to remember his love and grieve his loss: his wife Cindy, sons, Randall Woods, Adam Dalgard (Leigh Ann), and Zachary Dalgard (Crystal); grandchildren Skyler Woods, Walker Woods, Charley Woods, Parker Dalgard, Chloe Dalgard, Levi Dalgard, Hudson Dalgard, Jozy Dalgard, and Henry Dalgard; one sister Linda Woods Blackburn (Gary); nieces, Laksha Blackburn Monroe (Patrick), Lasha Blackburn Hanvey (Tim), Payton Verraneault; and nephews, John Deason (Kim), Paine Verraneault, and Lake Blackburn, as well as great nieces and nephews.
