Tony suddenly left us much too early to go be with our Lord in his new Heavenly home. A 1979 graduate of Sunset High School, Tony was full of life and loved the outdoors. He enjoyed nature trail walking, fishing, golf, trips to the library, riding his bicycle, and visiting the many friends he grew up with in Arcadia Park. Tony had a special love of music, and could often be heard playing his keyboard. He also had a green thumb and loved to nurture plants – especially those of his mother's. Tony was employed as a Conductor by the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority. He looked forward to each day's opportunity to meet new people, keep them safe, and assist them on their journey.

The eldest of three children, Tony was born on June 6, 1961 at Methodist Hospital in Dallas, Texas to Wesley Maurice and Carolyn (Hughes) Wood. Preceded by his father Wesley in 2007, Tony is survived by his mother Carolyn Wood of Grand Prairie, his brother Gene Wood and wife Lisa of Dallas, his sister Karen (Wood) King and husband Barry of Grand Prairie. Tony was also blessed with five nieces and nephews – Matthew Prater, Misty Dawn Wood, Melinda Castillo, Valerie Eribarne and Wesley Wood Jr.

Public visitation will be Saturday, May 16, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at Jeter & Son Funeral Home in Dallas, TX. A private graveside service will be held at Grove Hill Memorial Park.

Ecclesiastes 12:7
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was:
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
