Obituary for Jim "Woody" Wood

Jim “Woody” Wood, 50, unexpectedly and tragically chose to go fly high with the angels on June 2, 2019. Jim was born on September 16, 1968 in Missoula, Montana to Penny and Jim Wood of Lincoln, Montana. Jim was a GFHS graduate, class of ‘86. Right out of high school he began his career in sales which eventually lead him to Food Services of America. Jim worked for FSA for 20 years, earning himself many outstanding salesmen achievements. Jim considered his co-workers and customers family.

He was a true sports enthusiast through and through. From playing the game to watching the game, many memories and lifelong friends were made on the softball field. And let’s not forget to mention his passion for golf; he loved to take any opportunity to grab his clubs. If you knew Jim, then you knew his love for the Steelers was strong. He was always planning a trip to the next game. He had many road trips to the Griz games with his Griz Crew.

Jim spent many weekends in Lincoln. He found pure peace there. If he wasn’t on an adventure, he was helping his best friend, Rick, build his dream home. He took almost any opportunity to head to Lincoln.

When Jim became a great uncle it brought out the kid in him again. He would spend countless hours coming to Teighlor’s “shows,” coloring with her, and playing board games. Kaiden taught Uncle Jim how to build with legos and even cards. He spent every opportunity he could with his great-niece and nephew.

He loved his family dearly, small in numbers, but the love was huge. He is survived by his sister, Cori (Rick) Sisko of Great Falls; niece, Ashley (Toby) Hohmann from Washington; nephew, Luke Sisko of Great Falls; and great-niece and nephew, Teighlor and Kaiden Hohmann; and his lifelong friend, Rick Shepherd. It would be impossible to list all the people who were important to Jim. His infectious smile and giving nature made people gravitate to him.

He is now with his mother, (Penny Jo Wood) and his father, (Jim W. Wood) who he missed everyday while he was here on Earth. He chose to join them on what would have been his mother’s 73rd birthday.

From your Sister:

Until we meet again the special memories will put a smile on my face to help heal the pain in my heart and sorrow I feel. If I could only have you back for a little while, we could sit and talk just like we used to. The fact that you are no longer here will cause me so much pain; however it has freed you of yours, you’re free now. I was so lucky to have you in my life, what a ride it was. Until we meet again…………………. Always in my thoughts, your Sis.
