Paul Wood Obituary

Paul E. Wood, 87 of Jordan New York passed away peacefully Friday, January 5, 2024 in Crouse Hospital after a long, well fought battle with cancer. Born January 30, 1936 in Catherine, NY, he was the son of the late Francis and Edna Searles Wood. 


He was a proud veteran, having served with United States Army, and was stationed in Frankfurt Germany from 1955 to 1958. Once home from active duty, he continued to serve in the US Army reserves until his retirement in 1996.


Paul was a dairy farmer for most of his life, first with his brother James in Himrod, NY and then branching out on his own in Weedsport. He and his wife, Ann enjoyed many winters in Florida before retiring from farming and settling in Jordan.


He loved spending time with his family and friends, and every life occasion became a party. Euchre was his favorite card game, and he would get a game going at every opportunity. In the past, he enjoyed hunting with his family and friends. Once he retired, Paul worked part-time for the Hourigan Dairy Farm. He and Ann played golf, kept their lawn and worked their vegetable garden, sharing the harvest with all of us, neighbors and friends. 


Paul will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew him.

In addition to his wife of 67 years, Lillian “Ann” Wood, Paul is survived by his children, Michael (Kathy) Wood, Lori (Michael) Guzewicz, David Wood, Julie (Mark) Kreplin, and Daniel (Tina) Wood; grandchildren, Alyssa Kreplin, Jenna (Carmen) Paulino, Justin (Rachael) Wood, Erica (Chris) Gross, Brian Guzewicz and Markie (Bradley) Bouck, Devin McCarthy, Zackery (Carrie Jo) McCarthy; great grandchildren, Payton and Ethan Bouck, Ella and Zoe Paulino, Harper and Tucker Gross, Ruthie Wood, and Riley and Chloe McCarthy; his sister-in-law Sally Wood; along with many nieces, nephews and close family friends. 


Friends are invited to join the family for a memorial service to be offered Saturday, January 13, 2024 at 12 noon in the White Chapel Funeral Home, 2719 Erie Dr., Weedsport. Burial will take place at the convenience of the family. Calling hours for Paul will be conducted prior to the service from 10 AM to 12pm in the funeral home.
