Obituary

Robert Barry (Bob) Wood, beloved husband of Faith Wood, passed away peacefully on December 28, 2021, at the age of 77 years.

Bob is survived by his wife of 49 years, Faith (Hunter) and brothers Kay (Mary) Wood and Kent (Pat) Wood.  He is predeceased by his sister Carol (Bernie) Jensen and brother Jim (Jeri) Wood.  Bob will be dearly missed by his four children Todd (Nicola) Wood, Mellissa (Ryan) Fraser, Darren (Jade) Wood, and Kevin Wood as well as his 10 grandchildren Austin, Sequoia, Leeya, Moria, Colby, Madelyn, Tane, Benton, Tamar, and Hunter.

Bob was born in Cardston, Alberta to Forest and Eda Wood on November 6, 1944, the youngest of five children.  He spent his childhood years in Cardston doing what most any other young boy would do.  He, at times reluctantly, avoided the “wild” streets of Cardston by milking the family cows.  
After high school, Bob served a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints starting in Scotland and finishing in California.  Many great experiences were gained from his mission.

Bob moved to Calgary where he worked for Lorne Reed and Associates and then Carter Mapping.  He met Faith Hunter there and the two were married in the Cardston Temple on September 16, 1972.  In 1977, the couple moved to Lethbridge where Bob worked as a custodian for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  He took great pride in his work maintaining the church building.  Bob and Faith raised their four children in Lethbridge and have lived in the same house the entire time, nearly 45 years.

Bob served faithfully and diligently in many callings at church.  In his later years, he enjoyed time serving in the Cardston Temple.  He will be missed by others serving there.  
Bob had a sweet spirit and a kind hard working attitude that was appreciated and will be missed by many.
We love you Bob, Dad, and Grandpa
