Roy E Wood

(June 2, 1952-June 7, 2019)

At 68 years of age, Roy departed from this Earth to Glory, being met by his parents, Franklin and Evelyn, a sibling who passed before birth, and sister-in-law Sharon Perrine Wood. He is survived by his wife, Celestine; his three children from Margo Garrison, sons Jasonn Wood (Catrinel), Robert Wood (JoAnn) and daughter Mardell Wood; his son, David Wood; his mother, Cathy Monahan; three grandchildren, Jason Wood, Christopher Wood and Jessica Wood; brothers, Rev. Larry Wood (Elaine), Harry Wood (Rev. Cyndy Bagaglia-Wood); sister, Linda Wood Wattles (David); and many nieces, nephews, cousins and loving friends.

His life was defined by service to God, country and community. Chief Sergeant (Ret.) Roy Wood served ten years in the United States Army in Vietnam and West Germany, earning many medals and commendations. After proudly serving his country, Roy served as a guard at Trumbull Memorial Hospital in Warren, Ohio. He became a police officer, eventually serving as Chief of Police in Nicholson and as the in-house Chief of Police at a hospital in Throop, Penn.

Roy pastored with his brother, Larry, in Ohio, held many in-home Bible studies, and served as Pastor at Elk Lake Community Church, Penn., where he sang and preached. Finally, he was music and worship team leader at Rescue and Restore Church in Olyphant, joined in ministry by his son David.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness…” 2 Timothy 4:7.

 A memorial service for Roy will be held on Friday, July 12, 2019 at 11 a.m. at New Hope A/G Church– Hudson, Mich. with Reverend Cyndy Bagaglia-Wood officiating. Family and friends are welcome to join us.
