District 3 Magistrate Passes After Lengthy Illness
Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County Judge Executive has issued a statement announcing the death of District 3 Clark Wood.
It is with our deepest regrets that we announce the passing of Clark Wood, District # 3 Magistrate," the statement said.
"Clark took office January 3, 2011 and was always very diligent maintaining and improving the roads in his District. He was concerned and active in many areas of county government, remaining attentive to the needs of his constituents as well as all Edmonson County residents."
Cannon also said in the statement that Magistrate Wood was a valued member of Fiscal Court and will be deeply missed.
"We ask that you keep his family, friends, and co-workers in your prayers while they grieve his loss."
An interim magistrate will have to be appointed by the governor; however, Cannon's office said the current COVID-19 pandemic could delay that process.
Magistrate Wood was 69 years old. Funeral arrangements will be made at a later time.
