John Thomas Wood of Kaufman got his angel wings on December 16, 2017. He was born in Dallas, Texas on October 15, 1954 to Alton and Mary (Trevilion) Wood.

John was a faithful and dedicated employee of City of Dallas for 36 years where he worked as a mechanic.

John was a very proud and loving husband, father and grandfather. He enjoyed every moment he had with his family. His best memories were made after retirement, spending time with the love of his life, Rita. He especially loved to watch his granddaughter Skyler show livestock. John also enjoyed dirt track racing and going to the casino where he would play the penny machine for hours on end until his allotted funds had been depleted. Occasionally John would play blackjack and he would always talk the dealer into helping him play. He also liked to decorate his yard for every holiday and was passionate about fishing, and would go fishing any place, any time. He always had a story to tell…. John was loved by all that knew him and he will be missed tremendously.
