Ronald Gordon Wood (aka “Pidge” or “Woody”) passed away on January 16, 2024 at the age of 79.  Ron  is survived by Mary, his wife of 59 years, his children, Laurie and Scott (Liz), and grandchildren: Tucker, Trent, Tessa, Tate and Tori.  He is also survived by many other family members and special friends.  He is preceded in death by parents Chester and Helen Wood, and siblings John Wood and Bonnie Edwards.

Ron was born on May 18, 1944 in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky.  He graduated from Middletown High in 1962 and retired from ARMCO after 30 years of service in 1992.
