Lee Otis Wood was born and raised in Black Mountain, North Carolina (Asheville). Upon graduation from Stephens Lee High School, he relocated to New York.
Mr. Lee served honorably in the U. S. Air Force for four years. When his tour of duty was completed, he became employed with Con Edison as a Trouble Shooter on High Voltage.
As a child Mr. Wood, as early as five years old, wanted to be an undertaker. So in 1967 he enrolled into the American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service.
However, being an entreprenuer at heart, his desire was to own and operate his own funeral home. So in 1976 the Lee O. Wood Funeral Home was founded at 23 East 2nd Street. Mount Vernon, New York.
After a few years Mr. Wood envisioned a larger and more modern facility. So remodeling began and plans were drawn-up for the current chapel which is an addition to the original building. The new chapel has a seating capacity of 200 people.
