The son of Dale and Lela (Welcher) Wood, Daryl was born on September 29, 1929 in Newton. He graduated from Monroe High School. On December 4, 1948, he was united in marriage to Alice Lou Thomasson. To this union three children were born, Kirby, Jody and Matthew. Daryl enjoyed going to the Sprint Car races in Knoxville every week and was lucky enough to get into the suites the last two years that he was able to attend. He always enjoyed being outdoors, helping with the garden, house projects or with fixing cars. He was excellent at giving directions. His greatest joy, however, was the time spent with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Those left to honor his memory include his three children, Kirby (Marla) Wood, Jody Wood, and Matt (Deb) Wood; 6 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Preceding Daryl in death were his parents, wife Alice in 2018, a brother, Donald Wood and a sister, Dixie Cowden.
