James Albert Wood

April 10, 1940 — May 5, 2023

James Albert Wood, of Toronto, ON, passed away peacefully at the Toronto General Rehab Centre, on Friday, May 5, 2023, at the age of 83.

Born in Miramichi, he was the son of the late Robert Michael and Estella Katherine (Dennis) Wood.

A teacher by profession, he spent his formative years in Doaktown after which he joined the Lay order of Christian Brothers and continued teaching until his retirement. He left the order of Christian Brothers in 2002 and moved to Toronto where he remained until his death.

He will be greatly missed by his sister Bernadette Black (Late Daryl) of Miramichi; two brothers David Wood (Late Betty) of Miramichi and Kenneth Wood of Winnipeg, MB; and several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by half sisters Irene Mellin and Kathleen Dennis; and half brothers Bert Wood, Carl Wood, and Arnold Wood.
