Anthony Benjamin Tony Wood arrived March 26th, 1943 in London, England and departed July 4, 2022 in Orono, Ontario. Tony immigrated from England in 1951 with his parents Doreen and Benjamin Wood. Canada was a paradise for him. He enjoyed all that was to offer in Canada especially the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, canoeing and camping were some of his many pleasures.
