Pat Wood was a lifelong St. Mary’s County resident. He graduated from Margaret Brent High School in 1964. After high school, Pat was employed as a carpenter working alongside his brothers at Wood Construction. Once retiring from carpentry, Pat resumed his duties on the farm as a full time Tobacco Farmer. He was an avid hunter who loved any season of deer hunting or hiding in any goose blind around the farm. He enjoyed gardening, whether it was keeping up MaMa’s Iris garden, planting his favorite marigolds, or simply tending to his massive vegetable garden. Pat especially enjoyed growing pumpkins. He took great pride in entering his farm entries in the county fair. Pat was rarely seen without his camera. He took thousands of pictures throughout the years of the farm, the snow, of every deer, squirrel, baseball trophy, or any other accomplishment of his nieces and nephews. Pat was a devote catholic who loved the church and his family.
