Terry L. Hood Obituary

Terry L. Hood, 69, of Yuba City, CA, passed away after a long and courageous battle against Hairy Cell Leukemia on February 24, 2018, at UC Davis Medical Center. He was surrounded by his family. Terry was born on May 16, 1948, to Robert L. Hood and Hazel Ann Hood in Marion, Illinois.

Terry leaves behind his wife of 48 years, Judy Hood; his daughter, Tracy Pomeroy and her husband Joe , Pomeroy of Yuba City; two granddaughters, Daphne and Chloe; one sister, Barbara Salyer; a nephew, Randy Salyer; two nieces, Varonda Hetrich and Nicole Brown; and many nieces and nephews. Terry was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Hazel Hood.

Terry graduated from Marion High School in 1966. He joined the United States Air Force soon thereafter, and he proudly served his country for 22 years, including a tour of duty in Vietnam. He was a lifetime member of the VFW and of the Sons in Retirement, Branch 45. He graduated from Yuba College in 1992, and he graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University Chico in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Administration, with an emphasis in Criminal Justice.

Following his military service, he was a Group Counselor, a Deputy Probation Officer with Yuba County, and a substitute teacher with Marysville Joint Unified School District. His most important and cherished role was being a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and a friend to many. Terry will always be remembered for his kind and generous heart. He would never hesitate to lend a helping hand to family and friends. Terry lived his life to the fullest.

Terry loved playing golf, cooking, traveling, fishing, reading, and playing bingo. Most of all, Terry loved being with Daphne and Chloe. He loved working on puzzles with them, helping them with different school projects, teaching them how to fish, and attending their various sports activities to cheer them on. On football Sundays, he looked forward to watching Chicago Bears games with his daughter. He loved having fun with family and friends.

While our lifetime together may have been too short, you will always be a part of us, and we will forever carry on your memory in our hearts.
