PHOENIX (AP) — Friends and relatives remembered former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods as a funny and talented public servant who made friends from all walks of life and relentlessly pursued justice.
Woods was a longtime Republican loyalist who changed his registration to Democratic in 2018 because of his frustration at the party's direction and then-President Donald Trump.
He died unexpectedly last month. At a memorial service in Phoenix, his relatives recalled him disguising his voice to make prank calls.
They described him as a family man who loved sports and music, learned to play guitar in his 50s and was actively working on plays and other writing when he died.
