"I have done business with Pat for more than 20 years,
I know you can count on his handshake." -Ron Schaap
John Patrick “Pat” Woods was born and raised on a family farm in Curry County. His parents are Jim and Margie Woods. Jim is a World War II veteran and spent his life building his families’ dry land wheat farm.
Pat will tell you that his father instilled the traits of hard work, honesty, keeping your word, and respect for your fellow man. His mother, Margie, encouraged his civil duty to make the world a better place by giving back to the community and becoming involved as a leader. Pat has been married to Eva Woods for 41 years. They met at New Mexico State University where they both received bachelor degrees in Agricultural Economics and Business Administration.
Prior to retiring, Eva worked for the Eastern Plains Council of Governments which focused on economic development in Eastern New Mexico. She helped bring millions of dollars to our area from the state and federal government, as well as, the private sector for senior housing, apartment complexes, community centers, roads, streets, waste management systems, building renovations, and home ownership programs for new families.
More recently, Eva has been promoting wind development for Eastern New Mexico.
Pat Woods has spent the majority of his life working on the 100 year old family farm. He farms the same piece of land that his great great grandfather homesteaded in 1908. As a farmer, he is accustomed to long hard days. He is a proficient welder, mechanic, pipe fitter, post hole and ditch digger, backhoe operator, tractor driver, and cattle hauler. His farm is a dry land farm which cultivated his close relationship with God and respect for the land.
Pat has three children and feels fortunate that each was able to obtain a college degree. Toby taught high school math for several years, prior to returning to the family farm, where he now runs the day-to-day operations. Charlie is an engineer in Denver, Colorado and Loralee is an attorney in Roswell, New Mexico. Pat loves being Papa Woods to his four grandchildren and wants to make responsible decisions that will benefit this budding generation.
