Jeremy David "Worm" Woody

Jeremy David Woody, known to his friends as “Worm” passed away suddenly on March 29, 2018 at the age of 37.

While Worm grew up in Odessa, he left the city to attend college at Hi Tech Institute in Phoenix, Arizona where he earned his Associates Degree in Computer Science. After graduation, Worm worked in his chosen field for companies such as Intel and Shutterfly. While he was working, his job gave him the opportunity to travel the world, which he loved. He spent time in places like Tel-Aviv. He was able to see things that most people don’t have the opportunity to see.

Never one to sit still, Jeremy moved back to Odessa where he not only worked at Speedy Duke’s Diesel shop, he also had his own pilot car company. Worm loved to have his hands busy all the time. If he wasn’t working under a truck, he could be found tinkering in the garage at home.

Worm also loved his friends and family deeply. He was the “go to guy”. He was always willing to help out anyone who needed it.

He had a wicked sense of humor and often times it was mistaken for seriousness until he started to smile. He was quick with a joke or a prank and loved to see people happy.

Worm is survived by his loving parents, Jerry and Janelle Woody; his sister, Amy Rivera and her finance, Ben Daniels; his beloved April Shipman and her children; many aunts, uncles and numerous cousins; and his adored canine best friend, Big.

The family will receive friends at Acres West Funeral Chapel on Thursday, April 5, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. A memorial service is planned for 3:00 pm Friday, April 6, 2018 at Acres West Funeral Chapel in Odessa, officiated by Rev Jimmy Braswell.
