Jamie Marvin Hood
July 16, 1939 - Dec. 25, 2017
Resident of Corralitos
Jamie Hood lost his battle with cancer on December 25, 2017. He was surrounded by family as he passed. Jamie is survived by his wife Orvilla and by four children: Candi Hood, Sherry Bruce, Stephanie Hood Bueno, and Daniel Hood; and nine grandchildren. Jamie grew up in King City, CA and enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating from high school. After leaving the military Jamie worked as a tow truck driver, a gas station owner, a machinist, and an insurance salesman, but his passion was sprint car racing. He could be found at a race track most weekends and he was a well-known and respected member of the racing community. Jamie was also very involved in his church community. He remained very active - working, golfing, and racing until the very end. Jamie Hood lived life to the fullest every single day and he will be missed by all who knew him. A celebration of life will be held at the Willow Glen Elks Lodge in San Jose, CA on January 20, 2018, at 1pm.
