Obituary of James W. Cross
James W. "Woody" Cross, 77, of Little Mountain, SC was called home to be with the Lord on June 20, 2020. He enjoyed a full life centered around his family and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Woody was a multi-sport athlete at Brooklyn-Cayce High School, a brick mason, auto body repair technician, and served as Master Mason of Sinclair Lodge. He never met a stranger and was an avid collector of corny jokes. He enjoyed sports, music, conversations, and above all-a good laugh!
