Obituary

Homer Clark Woody, age 85, of Palestine, Texas, was called home to live with his loving Lord and Savior on Monday, the 23rd day of January 2023.  Mr. Woody was born on the 1st day of June 1937, in Palestine, Texas, to parents Fred T. Woody and Lorine Morrow Woody.

Mr. Woody grew up in Palestine, Texas and attended Alamo, Rusk, the old Reagan Jr. High School, and the old Palestine High School. His patriotism was vibrant; he loved this country and served in the United States Army from August 1955 to August 1958 before becoming a disabled Veteran. 

Upon returning home from his time in the service, Mr. Woody worked at Palestine Telephone Company where he met the love of his life Della Sue Tillman and married in 1959.  Mr. Woody had one son he loved dearly, Randy Woody.  He also worked at Winzen International, launching high altitude research balloons in Palestine, Texas. At the age of 55 he retired from National Center for Atmospheric Research and bought a farm four miles North of Palestine. The farm became a gathering place for his family.

Mr. Woody attended Grace Methodist Church, Brushy Creek United Methodist Church, Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church, and Westwood United Methodist Church throughout his life. He dedicated his heart to the Lord many years ago.  He was an all-around great guy with a quick wit and a humorous personality. His family, grandchild, and great grandchildren were his world. Mr. Woody was genuinely loved by many people and will be greatly missed.      

He joins in Heaven his son, Randy Woody, parents Fred T. Woody and Lorine Morrow Woody, and his brother Joe Mac Woody.
