When Bob Woods says, “You’ve never met anyone who’s had a life like I have had… still have…”, I can assure you that he’s not telling a ‘story’ just then. But his 85 years of life are certainly full of adventure, plenty of learning situations, hard work, travel, and very unique stories to share. Mechanic, bricklayer, foreman, owner of his own commercial construction company, pilot of his own planes, built his own house and 64′ steel hulled sailboat (named Hummer), enjoyed three wives and blessed with children later in life.
