JACKSON — Robert Allen Wood, 56, of Jackson, passed away Tuesday, July 8, 2014, at Adena Medical Center in Chillicothe.
He was born July 21, 1957, in Portsmouth, son of the late Harland Sidney Wood andJuanita Ice Wood, who survives him.
Robert was married to Christy Lynn Myers. He was the manager for RentWay several years back and then decided to follow his dream to be a truck driver.
He loved sitting on his porch swing, early in the day with coffee in hand, watching the world come alive. He also enjoyed being behind the wheel of a vehicle, whether it was his semi truck or antique truck — it didn't matter. He especially liked to go to antique car shows. "Woody", as his friends called him, led a full life with many adventures.
Surviving are his wife, Christy Myers-Wood, of Jackson; four children, Jacob Nevin Wood, of Mansfield, Ohio, Nathen Eugene Wood, Rachael Wood and Kelsi Wood Butts, all of London, Ohio; one grandson, David Alexander Wood; a sister, Mary E. Wood Guy, of Gallipolis; and many extended family and friends.
A memorial service will be 7 p.m. Friday, July 18, 2014, at Willis Funeral Home, with Pastor Ralph Workman officiating. Friends may call from 6-7 p.m. Friday prior to the funeral.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the family to help with expenses, Christy Myers-Wood, P.O. Box 122, Thurman, OH 45685.
