Robert C. Woods

Aug 15, 2017 (date of funeral)
Graveside services will be held for Robert C. Woods August 15 at 10:00 at Glenwood Cemetery, in Yazoo City, MS.

Mr. Woods passed away on Saturday, August 12 at the Mississippi State Veterans Home in Kosciusko, MS, at the age of 86.

He was predeceased by his parents Curtis Woods and Pearlie Wiltcher Woods; brothers, Wesley (Imogene), Luther (Christine), Charlie (Lorene), Leon (Nell), Johnny (Louise) and sister Lida Downs (Grady).

Mr. Woods was a life-long resident of Yazoo County, leaving only to serve his country during the Korean Conflict as a hospitalist in the Navy for four years. Mr. Woods attended Benton Public Schools where he met the love of his life since 7th grade, Betty Lou Williams. Both attended Holmes Junior College after graduation and before he joined the Navy.

After leaving the Navy, where he was attached to the Marine Corps, Mr. Woods first farmed with his father-in-law, Edward Williams, in the Benton community while also managing Mississippi Federated Co-Op/MFC Services in Canton. He later transferred to the MFC Services in Madison to manage the seed department.

He and his sons established Woods Angus Farms and together built a national reputation for quality Angus cattle. In 2004 they were recognized as the Mississippi Angus Association Family of the Year.

He and his wife were active members of Bethlehem Baptist Church on Fugates Road in Benton until he became too ill to attend.

He was an avid supporter of any activity in which his grandchildren participated. He never wanted to miss one of their cattle shows, ballgames or dance team performances.

Mr. Woods is survived by his wife of 63 years, Betty, two sons, Robbie and Mike, three grandchildren, Karen (Trey) Gunn, Matthew (Megan) Woods, Christie Woods, and many special nieces and nephews.

The following will serve as pall bearers: Marco Nicovich, Larry Hall, Quint Carver, Alvin Woods, Bill Downs, Alvin Woods, Jr., Gregg Lott and Clyde Lott.
