In the middle of the day on January 31, 1969. Walter Earl Woods was born to the parentage of John H. and Margie Wesley Woods at Baylor Hospital in Dallas, TX. From pe-school through 6th grade, Walter attended the Oak Cliff Christian Schools where he played Soccer. He spent his Middle School years at Boude Storey Middle School. Walter enjoyed his high school years at A. Maceo Smith High School where he was in the Drama Club and earned trophies for participation in one-act plays. He sang in the choir and won first place bass soloist in competition with other Dallas schools. As a senior, Walter served as Battalion Commander of A. Maceo Smith's Naval ROTC and graduated with honors in 1987.
Walter wore many hats. To name a few: Licensed barber; licensed CDL driver, both short and long haul; apprentice electrician; handy man; yardman, mover and whatever he put his mind to.

He wanted to more effectively bring others to Christ.
