Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Married on October 25, 1894 to Elsie Price, he became the father of a daughter, Lucille, and sons Raymond, Frank, Ivan and Gordon. After his death on November 9, 1934, retired District Judge Will L. Hoyt said, "Dennis Wood was held in high esteem by citizens ofJuab County and throughout the state of Utah. Surviving friends who knew him - they have dwindled in number with the passing of years - remember him as a friendly, kindly, courteous Christian gentleman, a man of unquestioned integrity and highest character - and as a man who was not afraid to speak out in defense of causes which he believed to be right, however many were arrayed on the other side. He was not afraid to speak in defense of a fellow citizen who was being criticized or maligned. "As Mayor ofNephi, he commanded the respect of all parties and classes. As a churchman, he was loved and honored for his broad-minded views and sympathies and for his sincerity and devotion. As a school official he won the friendship and affection of students and faculty alike. "He was a man of courage and faith. He had faith in God and faith in the triumph of truth and justice. He was a valiant fighter in righteous causes. He stood for clean speech and decency. I never knew him to profane. I never knew him to tell a dirty joke or an unclean or off-color story. It might be said of him, as was once said of Theodore Roosevelt, 'He was clean with a cleanness that cleansed the air like a gale.'" What more endorsement could be needed for the Newspaper Hall of Fame nomination of Dennis Wood?
