Jack Wood, age 70, of Norwalk, passed away on Friday, August 26, 2016. Born in Portchester, N.Y. on March 20, 1946, he was the son of the late Jack Edward Wood Sr., and the late Lilli Schonning Wood. A resident of Minnesota, Ohio and Maryland at different times of his life, Jack grew up in Darien and graduated from Darien High School in 1964. He then went on to graduate from Taylor University in Upland, Indiana in 1968 and enlisted in the United States Naval Reserve. Jack's professional career started in 1968 with 3M Corporation in White Plains, N.Y. where he spent the next 17 years in various senior sales capacities across the U.S.. He then went on to start his own business, J.E. Wood & Associates in 1985 where he was a manufacturer's representative specializing in industrial products. Jack was active throughout his life in the various communities where he lived. He was an avid golfer and loved his time at Silvermine Golf Club in Norwalk and Longshore Golf Club in Westport. He also relished his golf trips and pool tournaments with his many close friends. Jack's legacy and passion, however, was his family who benefitted greatly from his wisdom, guidance and unconditional and unparalleled love. He is survived by his beloved son and daughter in law, Christian and Krissy Wood of Wilton and his beloved daughter and son-in-law Stephanie and Tom Ryan of Westport. He is also survived by Christian and Stephanie's mother Nancy Senftleben of New Canaan, CT and his loving and devoted partner of many years, Peggy Watson as well as her children and grandchildren. Jack is survived by his brother Robert and his wife Jane Wood of Wilton and his brother Timothy and his wife Robin Wood of Norwalk. He was the proud grandfather of Jack, Ryan and Meghan Wood of Wilton and Lily, Sydney and Tatum Ryan of Westport, CT, as well as many beloved nieces and nephews.
