Condolences

The family of Robert Earl Wood has received the following condolences.

Bobbie Jo and family,.  So very sorry for your loss. Bob was such a good man. I'm sure a great husband and father. I think the boys were a handful but they turned out great. And Jenny also!. I didn't realize he had been sick or anything about his health. So sorry that we didn't stay in contact. Hugs to all. Love and prayers. Glenn and Linda Schmidt

Shocked & saddened. My deepest sympathy to all of his friends & family. A nicer man has never set foot on planet earth. He was two grades ahead of me in school, but years later I sold him steel when he worked for Minn-Kota.


Bob will be missed by anyone whose life he touched. RIP, brother!

Tammy, brothers leave 'The Best' imprint on our lives. They make us laugh and cry and wonder. 


Thinking of you, Nanette Bateman
