Ralph passed away peacefully with family at his side on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at Hillsdale Estates. It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our special brother Ralph Norman Wood in his 84th year. Dear son of the late Myrtle and Wes Wood of Orono. Ralph will be sadly missed by brothers Dick (Ruth predeceased), Keith (Helen predeceased), Boyd (Doreen predeceased) and his sister Norah Hetherington (Paul predeceased). Also many nieces, nephews and special friend Dawn. Ralph spent his early years on his family farm in Orono diligently attending his farm chores attending Atioca Public School. After moving into Orono in 1978 with his parents he kept busy keeping Orono tidy from garbage and bundling papers for the weekly pickup. Ralph had abundant friends and was known by many in Orono. In 2003 Ralph moved to the Hillsdale Estates where he became known as the Hillsdale Greeter where he spent his last sixteen happy years of life. He also loved playing the Harmonica and provided music for many to enjoy. Special thanks to Dr. MacIntosh and staff of Honey Harbour 4th floor at Hillsdale Estates for compassion shown at a difficult time. A private graveside service will be held. In Ralph’s memory donations may be made to the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation or the charity of your choice.
