Ova Leon Woods

Ova Leon Woods, age 83, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 24, surrounded by his family.

Leon, while being born in Lockwood, Missouri, and a "Missouri boy" at heart, was a long-term resident of Claremore, Oklahoma. After serving in the Army, Leon made a living as a truck driver. He later worked as a field representative for an agricultural production company. Thirty years of being a truck driver gave him a love of travel that he continued well into retirement. He visited nearly every state in the country and took his children on many fun and exciting vacations.

Together with Doris Woods, Leon was a loving father to Debbie Stacks, Cindy Engelke and Craig Woods, as well as a wonderful papa to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his brothers Carl Woods and Marvin Woods; and sisters, Myrtle Guinn and Nadine Woods. Later in life, he met Marie Nicholson with whom he spent 25 years. Leon had a love of Bluegrass music and old tractors.

A celebration of Leon will be held on Friday, June, 29, in the chapel at the MMS - Payne Funeral Home in Claremore. The service will start at 11 a.m.

The family would like to thank the nurses and medical personnel of St. John's Hospital in Tulsa for their comforting care in his final days.
