Loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Charles William Wood, went to be with his Lord Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016, at the age of 88. Funeral: 11 a.m. Monday at Countryside Bible Church, Southlake. Viewing and visitation: 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Lucas Funeral Home, Grapevine. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to Countryside Bible Church, Southlake, or to Church at the Cross, Grapevine. Born in Fort Worth to James Newton and Mabel Clair Simmons Wood, he lived the remainder of his life in Grapevine and Southlake. For many years he was owner of Western Auto & Ace Hardware, in the now 100-year-old building on Grapevine's Main Street, where both his father and grandfather had owned businesses and where today his son, David, is in business. Charles was a charter member and ordained deacon of Memorial Baptist Church (now Church at the Cross) in Grapevine and is currently a member of Countryside Bible Church in Southlake. In addition to loving and supporting the church throughout his lifetime, Charles loved nothing more than spending time with family, always initiating opportunities to get together. He was also passionate about the outdoors and was an avid sportsman, dove hunting with his youngest son the day before the sudden illness that took him after a brief hospital stay. His quick and fun sense of humor and ability to tell a joke or story, combined with his deep love of people, are traits that will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. He was preceded in death by both parents and infant brother, James Edward Wood. Survivors: He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Margaret Flemister Wood; children, Randy Wayne Wood and wife, Holly, of Monument, Colo., Mary Claire Hutchison and husband, Willie, of Southlake, Jennifer Diane Wood and husband, Robert High, of Scottsdale, Ariz., and William David Wood and wife, Dawn, of Flower Mound; grandchildren, Margaret Hutchison McMillan and husband, Collin, of South Bend, Ind., Cameron Hutchison and wife, Shea, of Monrovia, Calif., Kirsten Nicole Wood of Flower Mound, Matthew James and Christy Anna Wood of Monument, Colo.; great- grandson, Charles Henry McMillan of South Bend, Ind.; and brother, Jim N. Wood of Roswell, Ga.
