Norman Ellis Wood Sr.

Norman Ellis Wood Sr., 64, of Donnelsville, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, October 25, 2008 at 7:31 pm in his residence surrounded by his loving wife and family, following a courageous battle with lung cancer.

This amazing man was born February 12, 1944 in Pocomoke City, Maryland. He was the son of Charles Raymond & Mabel Ruth (Satchel) Wood.

He left behind to treasure his memory; his wife of 37 wonderful years, Patricia (Berner) Wood and seven children, Donald (Kim) Wood of Magnolia, Delaware, Debbie (Tim) Cochran of Enon, Tammy (David) Chamberlain of Donnelsville, Norman (Penny) Wood Jr. of Wyoming, Delaware, Rick (Cherish) Hursh of New Carlisle, Ginger Taylor of Donnelsville, & Angel (Greg) Pennington of Springfield. He will be deeply missed by his five brothers and sisters, Marion Daniels (Roby) of Springfield, Mabel Taylor of New Church, Virginia, Charles Wood (Betty L.) of Pocomoke, Maryland, Ada Linton (Charles) of New Church, Virginia and Fred Wood (Sandy) of Parksley, Virginia. And affectionately remembered and dearly missed by his thirteen grandchildren, Jimmy Wood, Donald Wood II, Lindsey Wood, Tiffany Cochran, Tim Cochran Jr., Thomas Cochran, Whitney Wood, Danny Hursh, Casey Hursh, Brittany Taylor, Patrick Taylor, Justin Pennington and Megan Pennington. And his two great-grandchildren, Kaidence Wood, Madisyn Wood and one on the way (Nevaeh).

Many people were touched by his warm and caring heart; those included are numerous brother in-laws and sister in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and acquaintances.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Ruth Wood, sister Mary Lou Wesley, and brothers William Wood (Betty) and Arthur Wood (Nancy).

Norman retired from Suburban Propane in Enon after 33 years of service. He spent the last few years spending time with his family, working in his yard, camping, four-wheeling, riding his golf cart and enjoying his life. He was a very special man who will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Wednesday, October 29, 2008 from 5-8 p.m. in the LITTLETON & RUE FUNERAL HOME where funeral services will be held on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. with Pastor Mark Decker from Cross Walk Worship Center of Enon officiating. Entombment will be at Glen Haven Memorial Gardens Mausoleum.

Contributions can be made to Community Mercy Hospice 1343 N. Fountain Blvd., Springfield, OH 45504. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the caregivers at Community Mercy Hospice and the Springfield Regional Cancer Center.
