Woody was never short of spreading happiness to all he encountered. Anywhere you went, Woody made friends with anybody and everybody.</p> <p>&nbsp;Woody will always be known as a true example of a gentleman&rsquo;s gentleman.</p> <p>Woody is survived by his father: Howard McNabb and wife Tammy of Seminole, TX; loving wife: Candus Annette McNabb of Hobbs; two sons, Zachary Tate McNabb of Hobbs and Quentin Robert Donahue of Tempe, AZ; two brothers, Jonathon Wesley McNabb and wife Rikki of Seminole, TX and Joshua Andrew McNabb and wife Liz of Hobbs. Other survivors include numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles and cousins.</p> <p>Woody was preceded in death by his mother, Bonnie Lee Armstrong and his brother, Louie Howard McNabb&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Facial masks are required at the church.&nbsp; Burial will follow at Prairie Haven Memorial Park Cemetery, Hobbs, NM.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Make A Wish America (www.wish.org).</p> <p>This charity was very dear to Woody&rsquo;s heart.</p>
