In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Diana Gail Woods; a brother, Glenn H. Woods; and his half-brother, Jerry Woods.
Wade loved his family, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with his entire being and they in turn thought the world of him.

Wade loved watching the Lady Vols basketball, Duke and March Madness. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and working with his coon dogs; he was a member of Stoney Creek Coon Club. Wade’s favorite country music singer was Loretta Lynn.
Those left to remember Wade and his precious memory include his loving and devoted wife of 63 years, Mildred “Middy” Holsclaw Woods, of the home; two sons, Tony (Chrissy) Woods and Darrell (Vickie) Woods; two grandsons, Brandon Scott Woods and wife Allie and Nathan Woods; three granddaughters, Summer Diana Woods and her partner Uhamma Delgado, Alexis Woods Marlowe and husband Tyler and Annie Woods Murray and husband Wesley; his great-grandchildren, Hallie Marlowe and one on the way; his nephew, Bradley Woods and wife Amy Woods; a special cousin, Larry Woods and wife Debra; and his special close friends, Leonard Lewis, Sherrill Kyte and Jim May. Several cousins, church family and neighbors also survive.
