Lee Don Wood passed away November 4, 2011 at the Veterans Administration Hospital with his loving wife, Bobbi, by his side. He was 68.
Lee was born November 12, 1942 in Hatfield, Missouri and grew up in Blockton, Iowa. During his life Lee lived and worked in various parts of Colorado and Nevada, eventually deciding to settle down with his wife in Grand Junction in 1997.
Lee was a proud patriot, having served honorably in the U.S. Army from 1964’1966 as a radioman and later as a gunner in the Vietnam War. He was a member of VFW Post 1247 of Grand Junction, where he found camaraderie and fellowship with other service members.
He was inexorably known for his amazing smile, sense of humor and generous loving heart. He always enjoyed having company and would tell stories for endless hours expounding on the experiences of his life, always with a measure of humility and levity that kept everyone light at heart and smiling.
Lee was a very proud grandfather and enjoyed spending time with all of his grandbabies and great-grandbabies, holding them on his lap, teasing and horsing around, watching sporting events enthusiastically together on TV, experiencing so many enjoyable moments that are now the special memories they will treasure.
Lee is survived by his wife, Bobbi Wood; two daughters, Cindy (Leah Dawn) Revoir and husband Robert, Becky Marc’s and husband Brian; two sisters, Wanda and Della; four stepchildren, Paul, Brian, Wade and Tianna; 10 grandchildren, Brandon, Milan, Kylie, Hannah, Josh, Tyler, Devon, Krysten, Hawk and Cora, and seven great-grandchildren, Alexa, Evan, Ryleigh, Nave’ya, Montana, Olivia and Makenna.
Lee was preceded in death by his parents, Harold Wood and Eva Jennings, and two of his beloved grandchildren, Lindsey Ford and Isaac Krebs.
Lee was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and true friend. His love and laughter will always be in their hearts as they all try to find solace and peace in his release from pain and sorrow.
A memorial service was held Saturday, November 12, at Martin’s Mortuary of Grand Junction, Colorado. A celebration of his life followed the services at VFW Post 1247 located in Grand Junction.
