Denny Leo Wood

November 28, 1941June 23, 2020

Denny Wood, 78, died 06/23/2020 after saying goodbye to his beloved family in Bremerton, Washington.

Mr Wood was born November 28th, 1941, in Bremerton to Elman and Viola Wood. After graduating from West High School in 1960, he served his country for many years, first enlisting in the US army, then at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard where he worked as a shipfitter until his retirement in 1995.

Denny, Frank Nuttman and friends, and his wife Charlotte, whom he married in 1977, completed the construction of their dream home in Seabeck in 1980 mere days before the birth of their daughter Renee, and enjoyed many seasons of sunshine and snow there together.

Denny was a man of many hobbies and interests, including but not limited to bowling, pool, watching his Seattle sports teams, and spending sunny summer days at their Lake Tahuya property. Above all, he had a passion for restoring and displaying classic automobiles. He could be found at cars shows up and down the west coast, showing off his beloved ‘62 black Pontiac convertible Bonneville, which he rolled for 44 years. Recently in life, he also acquired his life-long dream car, a 1940 Ford convertible, which he was in the process of restoring.

To a person, those who knew Denny speak of his winning smile, the mischievous twinkle in his eye, and his penchant for telling hilarious stories of “the old times.” He was an unparalleled storyteller.

He is survived by his wife, Charlotte; daughter, Renee; his grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and dog Sophie. He is preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Richard and Ron, and his sister Joan.

I am so sad to hear that my old friend has passed away. Over 50 years ago I met Denny, my husband was one of his closest friends. So many memories with their cars, marriages, children, grand children, family and friends. Denny was a big sweet, sensitive guy, such a unique personality. I know Char, Ren and the girls will miss him desperately, as well as his family and friends. I get a happy feeling, thinking about the two of them driving around heaven in a convertible, together again, David and Denny. We love them dearly and will forever miss them.
