Michael Francis Wood, a resident of Morgan City, passed away December 15, 2022 at Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans.
Mike was born on January 8, 1947 in Washington, D.C., the son of Howard Wood and Mabel Frost Wood.
Mike was an avid golfer and turkey hunter. He was also very active at the First Baptist Church of Morgan City which he loved so much. After retirement he spent many years volunteering in the community and traveling on mission trips through his church. Mike was also a long-time member of his local Rotary Club.
Mike is survived by his two children, Laura Wood and Jeff Wood and his wife Jennifer, both of Lafayette. He is also survived by his three grandchildren, Aidan, Ella and Bennett Wood and his brother, John Wood and his wife Trudy of Mesa, Arizona.
Mike was preceded in death by his loving wife of 52 years, Carol Ann Wood, Father, Howard Wood, Mother, Mabel Frost Wood and his Aunt and Uncle Jennie and Buster Sauls, who loved and raised him as their own.
It was his wishes to not have any services, so please pay it forward, love one another and do as many random acts of kindness as possible in his memory.
We would like to thank everyone at Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans for making his final days as comfortable as possible for him and all of his family. The Ochsner staff was truly a blessing in this difficult time.
