Dean Woods Memorial
Pilgrim Dean Woods a longtime Moose member and friend was in the hospital for two weeks with very serious health issues. He had two operations concerning the pancreas, liver and kidney complications, too. Pilgrim Dean passed away on November 21st with his family present.
Brother Dean and I received our Pilgrim degree together in May 1996 – 22 years ago. We had worked together on many projects. He supported me in my many Moose efforts. The most memorable were those working together in trying to help those lodges having difficulties.
Dean called me on November 15th to meet with him, his wife, Joan and his sister, Nancy at the hospital. Dean wanted to create a “Memorial Fund” with the money raised to be donated to Moose Charities. I did accept his request to handle this for him and will work to make it a success. I will be asking all members who wish to donate by placing this notice on the CNMA website and other means now.
Due to the request by Dean -- any checks sent will need to be made out To: Moose Charities and on the Memo line write in – “Dean Woods Memorial”. Please contact me with any questions on this required process. Do note that Dean Wood’s family will NOT be receiving any of the funds raised on this project.

The family has decided that the funds raised during this memorial project will all be committed to supporting Camp Ross for improvements and the kids who will be using this facility in the future. Thank you all for your continued support of our efforts. 

It is my hope that this effort will be well supported. Dean had dedicated his life to support the Moose program and this is a way to honor him and raise funds for Moose Charities at the same time. My contact information—Phone: 530-718-0857 or e-mail:
Thank you all for allowing me to make this request to you now.

Bob Sypnieski, Pilgrim
