My friend, Joe Woods, passed away on July 15, 2013. Many of you knew Joe, as he was active in professional associations at the local, state, and national level. More recently, he was a frequent contributor to VOE’s “A Chance to Travel.” Joe was a great person, wonderful family man, well-respected lawyer, and consummate professional. You often hear those phrases said about someone who has passed away, but in Joe’s case, they are all really very accurate.
After serving in the U.S. Navy, Joe graduated from Boalt Hall (now the University of California Berkeley School of Law) and joined a firm in Oakland, California, which is currently known as Donahue Gallagher Woods, LLP.
