Ronald J. Wood
March 13, 1930 - July 25, 2016
With deepest sorrow we regret the sudden passing of our Dad on July 25, 2016. He was born in Toronto, the middle son of Walter and Roxaline Wood. Predeceased by his brother Bruce (Bob). Ron had various careers throughout his life; a Dental Technician, a Fuel Injection Specialist for the A.V. Row Co. working on the Avro Arrow and lastly as a Firefighter for Scarborough for 31 years, retiring in 1991. Dad was proudest of his work in the Training Center, ensuring his firefighters had the education and tools to keep them safe on the job. His retirement years afforded him some excellent Curling times at Tam Heather Curling and Tennis Club. His beloved wife Catherine (Billie) predeceased him in 2004. They had 54 wonderful years together, setting an admirable example of happy married life for their children, Mary (John) Elstone and Robert Wood (Patty). He leaves behind three adoring granddaughters, Octavia (Ian) Elliott, Alyssa (Scott) Elstone and Meghan (Sean) Wellsbury and great grandchildren Diamond Elstone and Seth Oliver. He leaves behind his sister Carol Fisher of Markham, Sister In-law, Marjorie Wood of Aurora, ON and brother Richard Wood of Brooks, Alberta and an extended family of nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank Cedarbrook Lodge Retirement Residence for all of their care and devotion to Dad over the past two and a half years. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada or Operation Smile.
