Roger “Bud” Wood

Roger “Bud” Wood, age 88, of Allendale, was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, December 1, 2019. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Kyle Scott Rose. Bud was a loving husband, dad, grandpa, and great-grandpa who cherished his family. He always had a smile and enjoyed life to the fullest. He worked at Michigan Wheel as a machinist where he retired after 42 years of faithful service. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 66 years, Joyce (Kosten); his children, James and Marcia Wood, Robert and Sandi Wood, Kimberly and Scott Rose; five grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Jack and Lois Kosten. At Bud’s request, there will be no service held. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to Spectrum Health Hospice, 750 Fuller Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

  6. Deepest sympathies to your whole family. My dad (Ed) my uncle (ken) who have both passed, and myself all worked with Bud at Michigan wheel for many years. I will always remember his smile and his laugh. He was a pleasure to work with. He was kind to everyone and never said anything bad about anyone. A good example for all of us at work. He invited me to your house back in the mid 70’s and we went snowmobiling together. Good memories with a good guy. He will be missed but not forgotten. Gods blessings to all the family.
