Ricky Layne Woodland, age 65, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on August 4, 2020 following a short battle with lung cancer.

He was born on May 21, 1955 in Jefferson City, Mo., the son of Harold D. Woodland and Marjorie (Bohannon) Woodland. He was married on April 2, 1993 in Branson, Mo., to Renae C. Stone who survives at the home.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Ricky was a 1973 graduate of Jefferson City High School.

Ricky was a jack of all trades. He worked as a stone mason, construction worker, and did maintenance at a golf course. As a gifted artist, his favorite position was making custom picture frames and professionally framing pictures. He worked as a picture framer in Ben Franklin and Amber’s retail stores and was extremely talented in this task as well as creating art of his own.

Ricky loved his close-knit circle of family. He enjoyed the outdoors, and could often be found fishing, camping, and boating with his family at Pomme de Terre. Ricky was a grill master and loved having a good BBQ with his family. He taught his son, Ian, many things about the outdoors and life in general that he will cherish. Ricky was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, and rarely missed a game. Ricky was a believer and was a member of the Baptist faith.

Survivors include: his loving wife, Renae; one son, Ian T. Woodland of Jefferson City, Mo.; three grandchildren, Lane R. Woodland, Braxton W. Uthe, and Iris R. Woodland, due to arrive in August 2020; four siblings, Harold L. Woodland (wife, Linda), Connie Woodland Batey, Kerry Woodland, and Marda Gramm (husband, Shane); two brothers-in-law: Thomas Stone (wife, Robin) and Eric Stone (wife, Donna); and several nieces and nephews.

Ricky was preceded in death by his parents.

Private services will be held by the family at a later date.

Memorial Contributions are appreciated to the charity of the donor's choice.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

My sympathies t you and your family. When I was little, Rick was a great play buddy. Our backyards were across from each other and we enjoyed many fun times. He always enjoyed life and he will be missed. Jenelle Woodland Schwieterman

Very sorry to hear of Ricky's passing. We were good friends back in the day, saw each other from time to time over the years, and I always thought very highly of him. Ricky's dad and my late father-in-law, Lawrence Patton, worked many years together as well. Glad to know he believed in Jesus. Again so sorry for your loss and you all are in our prayers.

Sorry to hear about Ricky's passing. He was a great guy. We hung out together in 8th grade and went to see "True Grit" 5 times in the summer of 1969 for the showdown scene at the end just to to hear John Wayne tell Lucky Ned Pepper to "Fill your hands you......" We loved that line repeating it hundreds of times that summer and as a greeting to each other for years afterwards. Ricky and his family are all in our prayers. RIP Ricky.
