We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r Peyton Bennett Wood passed away on April 5, 2017, at the age of 18.

Peyton was born on March 24, 1999, to Kelly and Leann Wood. He is the middle son of five boys: Jordan, Brycen, Landon, and Dallan.

Peyton was a handsome young man who had many goals and dreams. He was enrolled in college classes while still in high school. Last summer, he completed courses at MATC for his CNA and Phlebotomy License. He recently began working with his oldest brother Jordan teaching tennis and was hoping to take over Jordan’s job in the lab at the hospital. Peyton’s goal was to become an anesthesiologist.

Peyton was really smart and was always good with computers. He was our go-to guy when we needed help. Peyton could always have intelligent conversations with us, but he was a young man of few words. We often were trying to figure him out.

Peyton enjoyed fixing cars and spent lots of hours alone with his Uncle Kelly working on his own car. We could always hear him coming up the road.

Peyton enjoyed life and was happy and kind to others. He loved basketball, snowboarding, mountain biking, camping as a family at Lake Powell, Moab, Bryce Canyon and day trips to the “Water Hole” (Upper Calf Creek Falls).

Peyton turned in his Eagle Scout paperwork the night before he turned 18. He had been waiting for the call for his Board of Review. His younger brother Landon had the privilege of sitting in for him at his Eagle Board of Review. Peyton received his Eagle Scout Award on April 7, 2017.

His younger brother Dallan will miss Peyton’s teasing. He was very sweet and tender with him. He loved to play basketball and football with him and they spent time playing video games too.

Peyton looked forward to having Brycen return from his mission to Russia. They had plans for the three oldest boys to live together while they all attended Utah Valley University this coming fall. Instead, Peyton will serve his own heavenly mission.

He will be missed by all who love him.

Peyton is survived by his parents, Kelly and Leann Wood; his brothers Jordan, Brycen, Landon and Dallan; grandparents Darnell and Rhea Jean Hancock and Gary and Marie Wood; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Funeral services were held April 13, 2017, in Santaquin. Interment was in the Santaquin City Cemetery. Share condolences with the family at www.brownfamilymortuary.com.
