In Loving Memory of Bob Wood

I stride in memory of my hero...


WOOD, Robert F. "Bob" WOOD, Robert Foster "Bob", died February 8, 2015, after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer. Son of Dick Pender Wood, Sr., and Robena Looney Ashburn Wood, Bob was born August 1, 1947, in Dallas, Texas. He was a lifelong resident of University Park where his father served as City Attorney for 37 years. After graduating from Highland Park High School in 1966, he graduated from Texas Tech University. His passion for Texas Tech football was unparalleled. Rarely missing a game, Bob was frequently spotted on the sidelines supporting his beloved team. Bob began his career at H.B. Hughes Company in Dallas as a sporting goods manufacturer's representative. On April 1, 1985, he and his partners founded Bob Wood and Associates. During the subsequent thirty years, Bob and his team represented many amazing brands including, but not limited to, Adidas, Badger, Fila, Gatorade, Johnson & Johnson, Nokona, Spalding, and Under Armour. He developed a loyal customer base of retailers, high schools, and professional teams. In 2000 he was inducted into the Sporting Goods Agents Association Hall of Fame. Bob's larger than life personality, contagious smile, rich laughter, and loving spirit will live forever in the hearts of his family and friends. He was a fiercely loyal and infinitely proud husband, father, and grandfather.
