Clarence “Pug” Wood passed away Sunday, March 9, 2014 at his home in Litchfield Park, AZ. He is now happily reunited with his wife of 51 years, Pauline and his mother and father, Ronald and Jewel Wood. He was born on July 15, 1935 on the family farm in Avondale, AZ. Pug, as he was fondly called by those who knew him, loved people. And everywhere he went he was surrounded by friends because everybody knew him. Before his health declined he was an active participant in a Wood family tradition where hunting, fishing, and camping together was a priority.
Not being one to plant roots to deep, he found that he was good at many things. He was a farmer, a car salesman, and owned and operated a grocery store in Buckeye for several years. He was an active member of the First Southern Baptist Church in Avondale, and his passion for ASU Athletics was second to none. After losing his wife Pauline, who he leaned on so heavily, his life was never completely the same. He leaves behind 3 sons, Ron (Debbie), Rick (Dawn) and Randy (Susan), brother Ken and sister Margaret and many grandkids and great-grandkids.
Visitation will be 5PM to 7 PM on Sunday, March 16th at First Southern Ba ptist Church in Avondale. Funeral Service will be Monday, March 17th at 1 PM also at First Southern. In lieu of flowers, please make your donations to the First Southern Baptist Church in Avondale. Burial will follow to Greenwood Memory Lawn in Phoenix, AZ.
