Patrick “Pat” Terry Hood, 82, of Castle Rock, Colorado, passed away peacefully on February 12, 2020 at Sky Ridge Medical Center. In his final days, he was surrounded by family and friends who would read to him and hold his hand to keep him comfortable.
Pat was born in Independence, Missouri to the late Hollis and Wanda Hood on September 30, 1937. He graduated from Northeast High School in Kansas City, MO.

He was a frequent volunteer at Epiphany Lutheran Church, especially assisting with packing clothing for the “Orphan Grain Train.”
Pat and Marcia were avid travelers following his retirement, traveling to all 50 states, Europe, Asia and Egypt. They enjoyed traveling in their RV and making new friends. They enjoyed playing cards and learning new games that they would teach to other friends and their grandchildren.

Pat became a dear friend of ours as a fellow member of Epiphany Lutheran Church and participant in our Lifelight Bible study group over the years. I had many good visits with him as I worked on various remodel projects on his home. What a great friend! Looking forward to seeing him again one day!
