William Russell Woods was born on November 1, 1955 in Pasadena, TX. Known to those that loved him as Russell, or "RuRu," he was the youngest of 3 children born to Bobby and Bobbie Woods. He graduated from Grand Prairie High School before moving to Oklahoma. He spent his career traveling for work installing cable, before later getting involved in home construction. But his true joy in life was being outdoors hunting and fishing. Russell could be found deer hunting with his family and friends at any opportunity. He loved football, and proudly supported his Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma State Cowboys. He loved his family immensely, and was always the life of the party. Russell passed away in his home on May 18, 2022.

He is preceded in death by his big brother Steven Earl Woods, his nephew James David Brandon, and several aunts, uncles, and grandparents. He will be greatly missed.
