Ronald Frederick Wood

After a long struggle with his health, Ronald Frederick Wood passed away peacefully at Hospice House, Vernon, British Columbia on November 4, 2010. Ron will be dearly missed and forever remembered by his loving wife, Helen, to whom he was married for fifty-one years; his children, Bob (Giselle) Wood, Michele (Mark) Carey; his grandchildren, Jon (Nici) Carey, Adam Carey, Malory Wood and Tara Newby and five great grandchildren. The son of a golf pro, Ron found his calling early in life. He started his professional golf career at Langara Golf Club, later with his father at Shaunessey Golf and Country Club and ending at the Vernon Golf Club. In the last years of his life he was quick to pick up hobbies. He was a fisherman, painter, woodworker, vintage car enthusiast and gardener. In keeping with Ron’s wishes there will be no service. The family will have a private memorial tea. Those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Ron’s memory to North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3502 – 27th Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via email: vernon@pafs.net.
