Dallas Eugene "Bill" Wood
Birth: May 29, 1930
Cherokee County
Texas, USA
Death: Nov. 13, 1972
Cherokee County
Texas, USA

Dallas Eugene "Bill" Wood was born on Thursday, May 29, 1930 to Dallas Franklin Wood and Bessie Gladys Smith.

He had three siblings: Ethel Retha Wood Barber, Helen Francis Wood Deel and Ruby Florence "Tootsie" Wood Boswell DeBruhl.

His paternal grandparents were John Franklin Wood and Dora Belle Avant and his maternal grandparents were James Monroe Smith and Mary Jane Powell.

He married Bertie Louise Waites in November of 1951. They were blessed with three sons: Timothy Lee Wood, Michael Gene Wood and Patrick Paul Wood.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and had also served as a State Trooper with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

He was found dead on Monday, November 13, 1972 in his car parked near Tecula, Cherokee County, Texas. He had been fishing at Mud Creek. The local Justice of the Peace rendered a verdict of death due to an apparent heart attack. He was 42 years old.

I remember as a small child, I would see my Uncle Bill drive up in his black and white patrol car. I would look at him in his uniform in awe. I never dreamed that one day I would follow in his footsteps and also become a Texas State Trooper.
