A lifetime resident of the area, Paul Wood of Winchester passed away suddenly on Friday, June 1, 2012. He was 60.
Paul was born in Winchester Township, on April 26, 1952, to his parents Burnice and Thora Wood (nee Robinson).
He worked at the Dunbar cheese plant for a short time, and then began working at Ault Foods (now Parmalat) in 1972. Paul had many different jobs at the plant over the years, including cheese maker and millwright. This June would have been his 40th year at Parmalat.
On April 16, 1977, Paul married Debra Stewart and together they had three children Patrick, Kristy and Daniel. The highlight of summer vacations was always taking the family on trips. Paul was a friendly, caring person who loved visiting with friends and family. He was extremely family-oriented and was known for helping others whenever he could. He enjoyed going to car shows – the favourite was always the muscle cars. Paul enjoyed every day and always had a smile on his face.
Paul is survived by his wife Debbie, his children Patrick of Winchester, Kristy (Patrick) Lavergne of Winchester and Dan of Winchester, his granddaughter Jazmine and his siblings Bert (Edith) of Dunbar, Don of Seeley’s Bay, Earl (Jan) of Morrisburg, Linda (Lee) McCaslin of Iroquois and Gary (Moya) of Rice Lake.
He was predeceased by his parents Burnice and Thora Wood (nee Robinson) and his sisters Evelyn Wood and Marjorie Barkley. He is also survived by nieces and nephews.
Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Williamsburg, on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service was held at the funeral home on Wednesday, June 6th at 11 a.m., with Rev. Geoff Howard officiating.
