Son of Harold Wood and Ida Stacey

Husband of Imogene Roberts, 26 Jun 1913, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah

LOGAN--James Harlan Wood, 80, Logan, died on June 6, 1995 at Logan Regional Hospital.

He was born in Magrath, Alberta, Canada on March 20, 1915, a son of Harold and Ida Stacey Wood. He married Imogene Roberts on June 26, 1939 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

They have five children: Robert Harlan, currently in Cairo, Egypt; Harold Steven in Basking Ridge, New Jersey; a daughter, Geral (deceased in 1959); Roger Scot and Harlan Jerry, both in Munich, Germany. They currently have 16 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

James is survived by his siblings as follows: Ruth McMullin, Santa Barbara, Calif.; Yvonne Bullock, Taber, Alberta; and Betty McPhee, Vancouver, B.C.; and brothers, Gordon Wood, Salt Lake City; and Burns Wood, Taber, Alberta.

A graduate of USU in agronomy in 1947, he had a long career in agricultural advisory work, beginning in Idaho. In 1954 he went to Iran on USU's contract with the USAID. His career later developed into a series of jobs in foreign aid in India, Africa, and South America. He was technical director to the American Peace Corps in India for five years. The final six years of his career brought him to Logan where he served as an associate director of the Consortium for International Development.

Long a proponent of healthful and wholesome activities for youth and adults in communities where he lived, he was an avid skier, golfer, and loved softball and outdoor sports. Wherever he lived he cultivated a bountiful garden. He has served in the Logan community as board member and chairman of the Cache County American Red Cross, and on the executive board of the Cache United Way. He has most recently been president of the Temple Fork Chapter of the Sons of the Utah Pioneers.

He has served in many capacities in the LDS Church, during his life, and was especially noted for work with the youth of the Church. He served a leadership mission for the LDS Church with Imogene in Chile, South America from 1983-84.

Funeral services will be held noon, Saturday, June 10, 1995 in the Logan 22nd Ward Chapel, 875 North 150 East, with Bishop Brian Lundberg conducting. Friends may call Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Cranney Mortuary, 420 East 1800 North, and at the church Saturday morning from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Interment will be in the Kaysville City Cemetery in Kaysville, Utah.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Cache County American Red Cross or to the Cache United Way.
