We Remember

WOOD, Kevin Donald

July 19, 1950 — June 4, 2024

It is with great sadness and a deep love that we announce the loss of Kevin Donald Wood, who peacefully passed on after a rapid and challenging bout of a rare intestinal cancer on June 4, 2024, at the age of 73.

Kevin was a kind, generous, compassionate, and empathetic soul with a sharp wit and a quirky sense of humour which was on exhibit until his last breath. He will be remembered for his love of music, his passion for reading, his life-long enjoyment of cycling, and his love of a good dog (and they are all good dogs).  He made so many wonderful memories with his family and friends — parties, dinners, travel, hikes, ski trips, concerts, conversations, and walks.  But food was his love language, and he welcomed so many people to his table, where he prepared and served so many fabulous meals so we could enjoy each other’s company.

Left to treasure his memory is his beloved wife of 39 years, Barbara Wood; his younger sister Cathy Wood of El Paso, Tx.; his in-law family of Grochmals; as well as nieces, nephews, and many treasured friends. He was pre-deceased by his parents, George and Mary Wood; his older sister, Barbara Gilbert; and nephews Glenn and David Gonin.

Kevin felt very strongly that no one should ever go hungry, so if you would like to honour him, he asked that memorial donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Food Bank,  or the local food bank in your own community.

At his request, there will be no formal service.

    Barbara, Ena and I offer you our heartfelt sympathy. We were so shocked to hear of Kevin’s recent health challenges from Pam and Dale. It was a great priveledge to have worked with Kevin and got to know him.
