Captain Jimmie Dale Woods, U.S. Coast Guard, (Ret.)

La Quinta, Ca- Jimmie Dale Woods, 85, passed away peacefully on July 22, 2020. He was in the company of his wife Jane.


Jim was born October 8, 1933 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was very proud of the fact that he was named after a Detective Series by the name Jimmie Dale/The Grey Seal, which is a fictional character who had a costume and mask for his secret identity, serving as a possible influence for characters later such as Zorro and The Shadow. The series was created by Frank L. Packard in 1914. His Mother was an avid reader. She chose his name right since he loved to read books, especially his comic books. He would often read the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Tarzan. You name it. He read it. Even his Math books would be read like novels.

Remembering Jimmie Woods 1933 - 2020
A post from Jimmie's daughter, Cindy. 


My Dad, he was a baker’s son, he got accepted both at the Naval Academy and the USCG Academy. The funny thing about it they both dealt with boats and my Dad had never been on a boat. He went by Greyhound from out west to his new destination New London, Ct. Class of 1955 he was. Upon graduation he bought a new Chevy- there is a rule there because of him that no upper-class men will profit by underclassmen. Seems my Dad would do grinder/ pizza runs for them. Reason for his new car.
