David Thomas Woody was born on July 26, 1969 to Russell C. Woody, III and Eloise Woody.
He graduated from Independence High School where he played football and played the
trumpet in the band. He also attended DeVry Technical College.

At an early age David accepted the Lord Jesus Christ at the Original Glorious Church under
the leadership of I.W. Hamiter. As a teenager David’s mom and sister joined Higher Ground
Always Abounding Assemblies, Inc. under the leadership of it’s founder Dr. Sherman S.

David was joined in holy matrimony to Isabela on January 19, 1991. Out of this union they
were blessed with 3 beautiful children, Courtney, Carmen and David, Jr. David was great
friend to many. He enjoyed good music, drinks and food. He loved his mom and sisters
cooking, and he was a great cook as well. Whenever he visited his family whether in South
Carolina or Maryland he made it known what he wanted to eat. This summer he found out
that his daughters could cook and from then on had them over every weekend cooking him
meals. David was an avid football fan. His favorite teams were the Dallas Cowboys and The
Ohio State University.

In September 2021 David came down with Covid-19 and spent 4 months in the hospital. He
had to come home hooked up to an oxygen machine, only leaving his house to go to his
doctor’s appointments. David needed a double lung transplant due to the Covid-19. This is
not what he wanted so he and the Lord had a little talk. He accepted the Lord back into his
life and got his body ready. David definitely was not scared of death. He would often say
death was the prize.

In the early morning of November 16, 2022 the Lord said come home where you don’t need
any more oxygen. He is preceded in death by his father, Deacon Russell C. Woody, III;
mother, Evangelist Eloise Woody; sister, Willa Mae Hamiter; and brother, Ricky Woody.

Forever he will live in the hearts of his devoted wife, Isabela; children, Courtney Woody,
