Moncton, N.-B – We, the family of “Bobby” Wood regret to announce his sudden passing at the Moncton Hospital, Moncton, NB. Bobby was the son of Eileen (nee Meagher) Wood and the late Allen Wood, Auld’s Cove NS.
As a child, Bobby attended the Halifax and Amherst School for the Deaf. He made lifelong friends there and they all held a special place in his heart. Bobby was a Thalidomide Survivor and despite his many health issues over the years, he never let himself be limited or defined by his condition. While attending school, he received many awards for wrestling. Bobby loved to bowl, play cards and darts and gatherings with his many friends.
Bobby is survived by his son Mark Wood (Moncton, NB), Mother, Eileen Wood (Auld’s Cove, NS), brothers Stephen (Antigonish, NS), David Wood/Terri Clements (Auld’s Cove, NS) and Brian/Wilena Wood (Auld’s Cove, NS), many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his father Allen Wood. The family would like to thank the doctors/nurses of the Moncton Hospital for their care during Bobby’s illness. Very special thank you to Louisette Boucher and Mark for all they have done for Bobby over the years.

I was so saddened to hear the shocking news of Bobby’s passing. With a heavy heart my deepest sympathy goes out to Bobby’s son Mark, Bobby’s Mom, Eileen, Bobby’s brothers Stephen, Brian, David and their families.
Bobby was my first very best friend and brother as we grew up together when we were placed in a foster home in Halifax/Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. We were both about 3 years of age. As young boys we became brothers—playing and learning together everyday. Those days sign language wasn’t allowed but we found a way to communicate and developed our own language. As we grew, we went to Ardmore School in Halifax.
When we were 11 years old, our foster father passed away and we were sent to Amherst School for the Deaf. Our worlds opened up and we were so happy and remained best friends and brothers.
We had lots of good times, good memories and good friends. I will deeply miss Bobby as we have remained brothers to this day.
Again, my deepest sympathies to Mark, Eileen, Stephen, Brian, David and their families.
Our deepest condolences to Bobby’s Family & friends!! Our thoughts & prayers are with all of you in this time of sadness!! Hugs & Love ❤️
