Trent "Big Dawg III” Woods Obituary

Trent "Big Dawg III” Woods died peacefully after a brief illness in Charleston, South Carolina on February 5, 2024, at the age of 45.

Trent is survived by his mother, Dianne Woods of Colbert, his siblings, Michael Woods of Marietta and Laura Woods of Colbert, sister-in-law, Christine Woods of Marietta, nephew, Hampton Woods of Marietta, and nieces, Heidi Woods of Marietta, and Emily Woods of Colbert. He is preceded in death by his father, Michael “Big Dawg II” Woods.

Trenton Lonnie Lee Woods was born on January 1, 1979, in Athens, Georgia to Michael and Dianne Woods. He graduated from Madison County High School in 1998, and from Gainesville College with an Associate of Arts degree in 2004.

While Trent’s primary career was in sales and eventually operations, he was best known for his passion for the University of Georgia Bulldogs. Trent was a reliable fixture at football games and tailgates, wearing his dad’s overalls and carrying on the family tradition of painting a bulldog on his head. “My whole life has been nothing but Georgia Football. Family and Georgia football,” Trent shared with ESPN Game Day in 2018.

His family and closest friends will attest that Trent never met a stranger, loved people fiercely, and was a devoted follower of Christ.
