Tribute & Message From The Family

Earl W. Wood, 77, of East Hartford CT, passed away on Sunday, February 4, 2018, of complications from lung cancer. Earl was the beloved husband of Wendy West, the two of them gratefully sharing life and love together for the last 32 years. Earl was father to Bill and Dan and was predeceased by sons Tommy and Gary, as well as siblings Roy, Jane and Jim. He is survived by his sister Carol, grandsons Addam and Brenden and granddaughter Alexis, his loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins, and many dear friends. Earl was fiercely proud of his work as a union "tin knocker". He worked on many of Hartford's landmark buildings during his 40-year career. Voracious reader, history buff and gardener, Earl was a lifelong learner who stretched himself in painting, sculpture, math, and boatbuilding classes. He was a story teller, a thinker, a mentor and a trusted friend. Earl was highly principled, with little tolerance for injustice. He generously shared his experience, strength, and hope with those who welcomed his spirit. His family will receive friends Sunday, February 11, 2018 form 2-4 PM at Carmon Windsor Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Ave., Windsor. To leave on-line condolences please visit www.carmonfuneralhome.com
