We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Demaray Funeral Service - Gooding Chapel
Rhonde H. Wood, age 73, passed away peacefully from natural causes on May 24, 2022.
He was born September 24, 1948 in Rigby, Idaho to Henry and Verda Wood. He was the fifth of eight children. He graduated from Bliss High School and attended Ricks College.
In 1969, he married Linda Marie Hull and together they had 6 children. In 1983 he married Carol Ann Faulkner and added two more children to the RHW Clan.
He was a truck driver, farmer, and most of all a family man. He was hard-working, giving and well known for his outgoing and sociable personality. Rhonde was a friend to all. Rhonde preferred to speak with his own unique vocabulary which many came to know and love: checking the water (having a cocktail), watching football (nap), frog (girl), hairy leg (boy), were just a few of his "Wood-ism's".
Rhonde is survived by: his siblings - Barbara, Doug, Jennette, Kim, and Kay; as well as his children - Nikele (Dan), Wendy, Shawn (Rina), Scott (Olivia), Angela (Jared), Dustin (Anjelica), Mandy (Miguel), and Rhett (Whitney); grandchildren - Kyle, Bryan, Nickolas, Nina, Annie, Tanner, Audri, Giovani, Tate, Londyn, Ty, Brooklynn, Rhonde W., Luke; and great grandchildren - Palmer, Theo, Vaelyn.
He was preceded in death by: his parents; his brothers - Barry and Lynn; and his favorite pups - Maximilian, Chuck, Kimber, Hemi and Rhino.
