Joseph Woods Jr., 71, of Richmond, VA went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 15, 2022. He was preceded in death by his parents, Viola Woods and Porter Woods, Sr.; sister, Beverly Howard.

After graduating from Meadowbrook High School in 1969, Joe began working for Phillip Morris where he retired after 30 years of service. He was a devoted member of Evangel Assembly of God for over 10 years. Joe never met a stranger; he always found time to get to know someone regardless of where he was. He frequented Skinquarter Market in Amelia, VA where he would grab lunch and talk with his newfound friends. Throughout his life he was an animal lover and adopted numerous dogs ranging from big to small. Though he is going to be missed by many, there is comfort to be found in knowing he is home with the Lord and has his Heavenly healing.
