Obituary For Rick Allen Wood
Rick Allen Wood, age 60, of Fremont passed away unexpectedly on Thursday July 8, 2022 from heart failure. He is survived by his mother Esther (Marlene) Wood; his children, Rikki Wood and Randy Wood; his granddaughter Penelope Lindstrom; his sisters Debbie Wood, Toni (Wood) VanHooser, Renee Wood, and Kelly Wood; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Preceding him in death was his father, Richard Wood.
Since his early childhood, Rick always loved to artistically create, and those talents excelled with his passion for cars. He admired his father as a skilled welder, mechanic, and drag racer and dedicated his life following those footsteps. He took absolute pleasure working with his son to carry on the tradition. Rick was a master mechanic and painter, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix. He built numerous cars for himself, always taking pride when going to the racetrack and car shows. Throughout his years, he constantly strived to help others with their cars as well.
Rick had a huge heart and was always there to give a helping hand. Whether it was a friend in need of support, a family member who trusted his advice, or a stranger who was feeling hard times. His friendships extended throughout generations, and he never forgot those who cared.
