Gary A. Wood

January 8, 1938 ~ December 23, 2020 (age 82)


Gary Albert Wood passed on December 23, 2020 and will be missed by his Son Randall Wood, Daughters Melissa Temple and Leigh Dudash, Daughter in Law Ronni Wood, and four Grandchildren Bryson, Brennan, Brigham and Azlynn.

               Gary was a graduate of Central State University with a Masters degree in Physics and Mathematics.  He then went to Medical School at The University of Houston and did his internship at M.D. Anderson.  He received the honor of a medical pioneer and forefather of medical oncology for his participation in the research and development of multiple Radiation Therapy devices and Treatment Plans.  His total career lasted 38 years in his field and was blessed to have treated thousands of people along the way.  On many occasions he referenced how he was grateful for the opportunity to help and treat people from all walks of life and help them beat cancer for them to go on and live full and happy lives.  Gary was a Leukemia survivor himself in the 70’s and used his own experiences to have more compassion for those going through similar issues.

Gary was also an avid Genealogical buff and has completed projects for both historic homes and families throughout the U.S. 

Gary will be missed by all of his family and friends…
