Honor Mission
John Eugene Wood , Veteran
Beech Island, South Carolina – 12-28-20


The Patriot Guard Riders will stand a flag line at the Celebration of Life for SGT John Eugene Wood. John retired from Monsanto. He was very knowledgeable and could fix anything. There was always a lesson in the stories/life experience he told. He was a man who enjoyed helping others by repairing automobiles of those who could not afford it or if just wanted to learn and do repairs themselves. He liked classic cars, motorcycles and guns. He passed Friday Dec 18th, 2020 after an extended illness. He was a hell of a fighter, he was courageous and he took this illness head on with no fear and fought until his very last breath.
