September 16, 1962 - December 4, 2015
Andy Levi Wood was born September 16, 1962, at Franklin General Hospital in Hampton. He always had a smile and a wave for those around him. After the family moved to Clarion, Andy attended elementary and junior high school in Clarion. He enjoyed playing football, wrestling and track. While growing up, Andy and his brothers did everything together, especially getting into trouble; of course his older sister was good at giving orders. In 1981, he was seriously injured after being struck by a car. Andy was hospitalized at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines. He spent one month in a coma and endured months of care and therapy. Andy pulled many pranks on the staff there and his smile continued to shine, even with his suffering. He earned his high school equivalency and then custodial training. Andy married, but divorced shortly later. One day Dad and Talana drove from Kanawha to Hampton an hour drive one way to visit him; they knocked on the door and he opened the door and told them, "I don't want any company today," and closed the door. Andy never left anyone guessing on what was on his mind. At times, he was very stubborn just like his dad. He tried to maintain his independence as long as possible. He eventually moved to the Hampton Health Care Center. Andy enjoyed getting together with his brothers, ridding in the truck, listening to music and going to church. He kept in contact with his sister by phone and received birthday cards and other letters from her. Andy left this earth on Friday, December 4, 2015, and joined his mom, Janice (Hovenga) and dad, Adelbert "Del" Wood, in Heaven. He is survived by his sister Talana Mattoon of Molalla, Oregon; brothers Travis and Troy Wood of Hampton; nieces Crystal Cook of Kanawha, Sherry Kiefer of Burt and Holly Conklin of Mason City; along with ten great nieces and nephews.
