Charles F. "Chuck" Wood

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. He began his career with the NYS Dept. of Corrections in 1978 and worked until his retirement in 2006.

He was a member of the American Legion Post 1618 in Saranac. Chuck loved life, and people. He enjoyed having a good time with family and friends, and will be remembered for his ability to make people laugh, and the fact that he was always "fixin to make someone smile". That unique saying Chuck had will be remembered and recited by many, for many years to come. He will not be forgotten. Chuck was also an avid Harley rider, golfer, and Airborne race fan.
