Timothy Elliott Wood, 37, passed away Sunday, March 31, 2019, at his home in Virginia Beach. Timothy was born Aug. 25, 1981, to George and Margaret “Peggy” Wood in Memphis, Tennessee. Timothy graduated from Craigmont High School in Memphis.
Timothy met the love of his life, Christina Wood, when she was 19 and he was 21. They met through Timothy’s sister, Christine, in Memphis. Timothy and Christina married and relocated to Virginia Beach to raise their family.
The Wood’s union was blessed with four children, Terra, Makayla, Ilaina and Timothy Junior. Timothy’s family was everything to him. He loved to spend his weekends with his wife, children and close friends, sharing laughs at cookouts or cheering on his favorite football team, the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Timothy was a talented mechanic and worked at Vail Automotive for many years. As a motorcycle enthusiast, Timothy loved to take Christina riding on the back of his Hayabusa 1300. He loved dogs and enjoyed spending lazy mornings in bed snuggling with his wife, daughters and dog, Kane. Timothy was a truly singular man, touching the hearts and lives of everyone he met.
In addition to being preceded in death by his parents, Timothy is now reunited with his beloved son, Timothy Junior. Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Christina; three daughters Terra, Makayla and Ilaina; sisters, Christine and Amanda; brothers, Derek, Scott, Jay and Joey; mother-in-law, Emily; sister-in-law, Amber; aunt; nieces and nephews; closely-knit group of friends that served as an extended family; and a vast community of loving friends, coworkers, neighbors and acquaintances.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 6, at Parkway Christian Center, 601 Volvo Parkway, Chesapeake. Flowers and contributions may be sent to Parkway Christian Center.
