Loren Aldon Woods was born on May 30, 1917, to William Floyd and Texie Euelle (Hayes) Woods in Frederick, Oklahoma. He graduated from Frederick High School in 1935 and was the last living graduate from his class. He died at age 95 on July 11, 2012, in Georgetown, Texas. Aldon married his high school sweetheart, Gwendolyn Cole, on August 10, 1939, in Frederick and they had two children, Marilyn and Bob. Starting in 1942, he worked for the Frederick Post Office for over 12 years. He was a faithful member of the Frederick Methodist Church and also the Masonic Lodge, where he served as the Worshipful Master and also received his 50 year membership pin. He loved people and never met a stranger. In the early 1950's, he and a friend restored a 1906 Cadillac. That was the first of several antique cars that he owned and restored. He married Dorothy Estes Mitchell in 1964. He began a 17 year career in the agricultural chemical business in 1965, in Lubbock, Texas. His out-going personality served him well, and he was often the top salesman in the state and won several awards. He traded and restored airplanes and earned his pilot's license in 1971. He enjoyed flying for many years and shared that love of flying with his son, Bob, who later bought his Dad's last airplane. After his retirement from Farmland Industries in 1982, he had 30 years as owner of the Fairview Mobile Home Park in the resort town of Kingsland, Texas. He attended the Baptist Church in Kingsland. He had a host of friends and enjoyed riding around in his golf cart and visiting with the people in the park. His eyesight got progressively worse and after a stroke 5 years ago, his health began to decline. He met these challenges with dignity and retained his sense of humor. Dorothy was his faithful companion and constant care-giver. With her full-time help, he was able to stay in his own home, which meant a lot to him and to all of his family. He was preceded in death by his parents and his older sister Cleta Merle (Mrs. Hansford Landes) of Frederick. He is survived by Dorothy in Kingsland; his daughter, Marilyn and her husband Joe Vaughan of Canadian, Oklahoma; his son, Bob and his wife Brenda (Byrum) Woods of Arlington, Texas; his grand-daughter, Lori (Woods) and her husband J Smith of Grand Prairie, Texas; his younger brother, Anthon Woods of Lubbock, Texas; his younger sister, Claudine and her husband Jack Duncan of Frederick; and several nieces and nephews. They all loved him dearly.
