Obituary for Jimmie Dale Woods

Jimmie D. “Jim” “Pops” Woods, a resident of Highland, died at home in the care of his family on January 9, 2020 after a two year battle with a brain tumor. He was 73 years old.

Jim was born in Sycamore, Humphrey County, Tennessee, on July 5, 1946, the son of Jessie and Bessie (Brake) Woods. He married Pamela Gutherie, the love of his life, on February 19, 1966. Shortly after their marriage he was drafted to serve in the U.S. Army for three years.
They were blessed with the births of two beautiful daughters, Kimberly Woods Corey, married to Michael Corey, and Kristina Woods Rand, married to Brian Rand. He was blessed to have five awesome grandchildren, who were the apple of his eye; Josh Corey, Nick Corey, Nolan Rand, Nathan Rand, and Sarah Rand (his “Little Princess”). He gave them good counsel: “school first, fun later.” His family is proud to say that they are all geared to get a college education, which was always very important to him.

Jim began his career in the Purchasing Department with Ford Motor Company, before joining Excel Industries, an automotive supplier, where he served as Vice President of Sales, and was responsible for all of its North American and International sales marketing. Excel later became Dura Automotive Systems, Inc. from which he retired to play golf—as much golf as he could! Most of all, he enjoyed his grandkids and attending their sporting events.

For his family, there will forever be a gap in their lives.

A Memorial Gathering will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty Street, Milford, on Saturday, January 18, from 12 Noon until 3PM. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in his name to Milford High School Boys Basketball, attn: Sandy Alaska, 2380 S. Milford Road, Highland, MI 48357
