SARANAC — Charles F. "Chuck" Wood, 63, of the Wilson Road, Saranac, died Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 at his home under the loving care of his family and Hospice of the North Country.

He was born in Plattsburgh, August 29, 1949, the son of the late, Oliver and Delima (Trombley) Wood. Chuck, as he was fondly referred, graduated from Saranac Central School. Following high school he enlisted in the United States Army and served proudly until his honorable discharge in 1972.
