Mr. Wood passed away surrounded by his loving family on Friday, December 24, 2021. He was born July 11, 1939 in Thomas, Louisiana to the late Freddie and Mable Wood. Along with his parents he is also preceded in death by his sisters Rosa Rennett Graham, Edna Earl Wood Landry, and infant Carolina Elizabeth Wood.
Mr. Hubert was a faithful member of New Zion Baptist Church. There he served as president of Brotherhood and Chairman of the Deacons. He was proud to be a veteran of the United States Army and the Military Police. For 38 years he was a lineman and right of way supervisor for Magnolia Electric Power Association. Even after his retirement he returned to the field to help with the line damage during Hurricane Katrina. But the most important thing in his life was his family. He always reminded them to love and take care of one another. Mr. Wood's love and compassion will be missed by many.
