Craig Breckinridge Wood

Craig Breckinridge Wood

Craig Breckinridge Wood, 75, of Wake passed away on Christmas Day, December 25, 2018 at home with his family.

He was a wanderer, natural scientist, spiritual man, and beloved teacher. He endeavored to expand our knowledge of natural history and humanity throughout his life, earning his doctorate from Harvard University in 1992, and pursuing research around the world.

He leaves behind his wife, Sung He Lee Wood; and three children, William Virgil Wood, Violet Bayland Wood, and Virginia Lee Wood.

He will be cremated by the Cremation Society of Virginia in Richmond. He will be remembered and honored by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology as an esteemed member, by the scientists and researchers he mentored and who continue the research that he pioneered in Africa, by Providence College where after 38 years he retired and became Professor Emeritus of Biology, and by Philippi Christian Church of Deltaville.

On behalf of his family, thank you to everyone in the community who supported us, so that we could fulfill our dream of caring for him at home. We will remember him in love.
