James Wood

James Norman Wood James "Jim" Norman Wood went to be with the Lord on February 1, 2013. Jim was born on February 29, 1960 in Temple, Texas. A beloved son, brother, brother-in-law and friend, Jim will be remembered for his intelligence, generosity and kindness. Jim grew up in Houston and attended St. John's School. He proudly earned his Eagle Scout Badge while in high school. He moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas, where he received a B.S. in business and was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon. After receiving his M.B.A. from Texas State University, Jim went on to become the founder and CEO of James Wood Consulting. Jim spent his final years in Tyler where he worked as landman in the oil industry. Jim was profoundly intelligent, and his knowledge and passion for his country were the source of invigorating discussions and lively yet civil arguments. Jim was also known for spontaneous acts of generosity and kindness, surprising many of his friends with small gifts, or grilling the best steaks ever for his friends and family. Most importantly, Jim was a dear uncle to his nephews. He provided valued support to his nephew, Jacob, after his twin brother's passing, taking him on cub scout camping trips and other fun outings, imparting valuable wisdom and entertaining him with stories about their family. Jim was preceded in death by his mother, Sarah Norman Wood; brother, John Wood; grandmother, Wilma Norman; and uncle, James Norman. He is survived by his father, Dr. Robert Wood, Jr., M.D; brother, Robert Wood III; his nephews, William, Harrison, and Jacob Wood; and many dear friends and family. Jim loved his nephews, Texas, his country, politics, good food and good conversation. He was a joy to his friends and family. He will be dearly missed.
