Burl passed away Thursday, February 7, 2019 at Licking Memorial Hospital. He was born October 16, 1967 in Newark, Ohio to the late Burl L. and Carol (Bagent) Wood, Sr.
Burl enjoyed listening to all types of music, especially songs from the 1970’s and 80’s. He was an avid collector of vintage rock-n-roll memorabilia and had an extensive Donald Duck collection. For those who knew Burl best, understood he was a quiet and somewhat a private person who also had a wonderful sense of humor.
He is survived by his wife of twenty-four years, Sandra K. (Luckett) Wood, whom he married on May 6, 1994; a son, Presley Wood; and a sister, Faith Wood.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by two sisters, Linda Conrad and Alice Shipman.
