Doc S. Wooley was born January 17, 1925, in Pearson Chapel, Texas to Colonel Waymon & Hattie (Gray) Wooley, although, he was mostly raised by his mother and step-father, Clyde Taylor.

He worked as a mechanic for Continental Can Company and retired after thirty-one years.

Doc loved music and enjoyed playing and singing all over the country. He also enjoyed raising a large garden every year. Doc appreciated being outdoors and was an avid squirrel hunter and fisherman. He will most fondly be remembered for his unique storytelling ability which, to his family, was better than anyone around. Doc had been a resident of Leon County since 1978.

He was preceded in death by both of his parents; step-father, Clyde Taylor; sons, Joe Leonard & Wallace Earl Wooley and daughter, Juanita Roberts.
