Larry G. “Woody” Wood, 77, of New Philadelphia, Ohio, passed away Sunday, July 9, 2017. He was born February 25, 1940, in Dover, Ohio, to the late Caroline and Oliver Wood. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Margaret Angus and Jean Penrod, and brother, Robert Wood. He is survived by his children, Brian Wood and DiAnne Wood, granddaughters Beth Vandevender and Heather Vandevender, his long-term girlfriend, Dianne Waldren, and his ex-wife, Sherron Wood.

 

He retired after working at Reeves Steel for over 33 years so he could enjoy what he liked the most, going to his garage working on Hot-Rods. Friends would come to the garage to visit him just so they could enjoy his endless teasing.  He loved the Cleveland Indians and enjoyed his son’s stock car racing, and going to a casino and taking their money while playing blackjack.

 

Calling hours are July 14, 2017, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory in New Philadelphia.  In a private service, Larry’s ashes will be buried with the ashes of his beloved dog, Camshaft.

 

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donating to your favorite charity or buy yourself a bottle and have a toast to his memory.

To Larry's family, so sorry for your loss. Have a lot of memories of our parents hanging out together and our Dads working together at the mill. May you find peace in the knowledge that he lived a full life!

DiAnne, I don't have any memories of your dad, but you are his legacy, and you're awesome. His his pride in you must have been so self-evident so as not ever to need mentioning. How wonderful that he had a long life and people who loved him for so long, and that you had a father like him to adore. I will buy a bottle and toast the memory of your dad and dads everywhere whose daughters were the light of their lives. My heart is with yours....
