Former Town and Country Publisher Dies
2012-09-19

     Roderick (Rod) Wood, 67, former publisher of the Town and Country newspaper, passed away at Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Philadelphia yesterday morning.

        Wood and his wife, Wendy, now deceased, started the Hearthstone Press in 1995. In an earlier article, Rod said, “I had the idea in my head for a long time … I thought we could do something different than the Town and Country newspaper was doing back then.”
        On May 1, 1997, Wood purchased the Town and Country newspaper from Gannett publishing and combined the two publications under the banner of The Hearthstone Town and Country. 
        After retiring in 2006, Wood continued to write opinion pieces and do freelance reporting for the newspaper.
        Wood was a graduate of Perkiomen School (1963) in Pennsburg and Trinity College, Hartford, CT. in 1967.
        He is survived by his wife, Lusandre, son, Ian, brother, Harry, and his wife, Linda, and niece, Sara. An obituary will appear in next week’s edition.
        Mann-Slonaker Funeral Home has made the following arrangements. Calling hours will be Sunday, September 23 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Mann-Slonaker Funeral Home and Monday, September 24 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. at Palm Schwenkfelder Church. The funeral service will be held at Palm Schwenkfelder Church at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, September 24 interment to follow services at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Red Hill.
