Curtis Leroy Hood was born May 5, 1930, in Etowah County and in his words, "caught the last train out" on July 5, 2015, after having lived a very active, independent life on his home place in Gadsden, Alabama. Curtis was a christian, loved his family and was a sage advisor, devoted to instilling christian values and a great work ethic in all his heirs. He was retired from Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, where he spent most of his career in quality control, after serving in the U.S. Army. An avid gardener, thrifty investor and "trader," he was well-known for his generosity and kindness to others. He is survived by his children, Rebecca Jane Hood Rungsang, Dr. Joseph Michael Hood (Tina Hoang Hood), Laura Ann Hood Nichols (Tony Nichols) and Dr. James Stephan Hood (Dr. Kelly Turk Hood); grandchildren, April Marie Rungsang (Term Ittipcharoen), Alisa Carolyn Rungsang, Jennifer Lynn Hood, Melanie Elaine Hood, Daniel Matthew Hood, Anna Kristen Nichols Gadoury (Kyle Gadoury), Luke Cavender Nichols, Thomas James Hood and John Leslie Hood. Also surviving Curtis are his cherished brother and sisters by marriage, Jack and Annette Cavender, Carolyn Cavender Johnson and Barbara Sims Hood and many wonderful nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Maryann Cavender Hood; his granddaughter, Emily Lauren Nichols; his parents, Robert Anderson Hood and Ora Irene Glenn Hood; his brothers, Woodrow, Robert, Thomas and Cecil Hood and his sisters, Alma Hood Morgan, Mildred Hood Croft and Thelma Hood Entrekin Williamson. A life celebration will be held on Sunday afternoon, August 2, 2015, at Events on Court, 118 Court Street, Gadsden, Alabama, beginning with a Meet & Greet at 2:30 p.m., a Tribute at 3:30 and a reception following. All are welcomed to join us in this wonderful time of friends and family celebrating the life of Curtis Hood! We hope you will share special memories and stories of Curtis during this celebration. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that you give to someone in need, remembering Curtis Hood with a smile and the knowledge that "Every day is a bonus day!"
