Michael William Wood, 59, of Friendship, Maryland, passed away peacefully on November 30, 2020. He was born on August 8, 1961 at Providence Hospital in Washington, D.C. to John H. and Polly Keegan Wood. Mike grew up on the family farm and lived most of his life in the Friendship area, graduating from Southern High School, Harwood, MD, in 1979. He was employed by International Trucks for 20 years, and then had a 20-year career with Erie Insurance as a Heavy Equipment Appraiser. Besides his parents, he is survived by three children, Justin M. of Friendship, MD, Jason R. of Churchton, MD, and Jenna M. Wood of Annapolis, MD; brothers Steve (Michelle) Wood and Donnie (Kathy) Wood, all of Friendship, MD. Mike loved everything about the Chesapeake Bay, enjoying fishing, crabbing, and boating. It was a great solace to him.
A celebration of Mike’s life will be held at a later date. Contributions may be made to Hospice of the Chesapeake, or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
