Wayne Hood, a loving and spirited man of faith, passed away peacefully of natural causes in Opelika, Alabama on September 9, 2023. Born on June 29, 1940, Wayne lived a full and vibrant life, touching the hearts of many with his unwavering faith and love for his family.

Wayne was a talented carpenter, dedicating 45 years of his life to Batson Cook Construction before his well-deserved retirement.

Wayne was a man deeply committed to his faith. He served the Lord his entire life, and his faith was a guiding light for him and those around him. He was a long-standing member of the Evangel Temple Assembly of God in Huguley, where he served as the Sunday school superintendent for many years.

He enjoyed watching the Atlanta Braves play. He was also a keen traveler, exploring numerous places with his beloved wife of 64 years, Saundra.
