Hayden Dean Wood, age 25, of Ft. Collins, Colorado was granted his angel wings on April 4, 2018. Hayden was born in Ft. Collins. He attended and graduated Ft. Collins High School in 2010. Throughout his life he enjoyed playing basketball and made lifelong friends with his basketball family. He enjoyed watching and attending Nebraska football games with his family. Nebraska Cornhuskers were in his DNA. Hayden had a special bond with his younger brother Jesse. He was not only a brother, but a mentor, always looking out for him, even putting in a good word with Santa Claus. Whether it be giving him basketball pointers or just hanging out. Hayden met the love of his life, Hannah November, six years ago and they were recently engaged to be married. They built a wonderful life – hanging out with friends, working out together and making improvements on their newly purchased home. They loved live music and several out-of-state trips to listen to their favorite artists. A love for recording artists, Pretty Lights, brought them together. Hannah saw Hayden across the room and told him he looked like Derrick Vincent Smith. After that, he never left her alone. Hannah loved Hayden enough to support his Cornhusker obsession by keeping beer handy for him to throw at the TV when the were losing. Hayden worked in North Dakota along side his family in the oil industry for a period of time. While there he met and made lifelong friends. Upon returning to Ft. Collins he worked with his uncle and cousin installing garage doors. Most recently he worked for Martin Marietta as a quality control technician. He left an everlasting impact with everyone. His energy for life was addicting and he shared many great times with his Crew. Hayden had many great memories of camping, fishing and traveling with his family and friends. Hayden was full of life and love. He made every day count. Everyone he met was filled with a sense of joy in their hearts. He always had a smile. Hayden had an infectious laugh and his ability to paint a story was uncanny. His charisma was captivating and his soul was beautiful. If you were lucky enough to meet Hayden, you had an instant friend. He will always be remembered as a gentle soul, loving brother, son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.
Hayden is preceded in death by his Grandfather George Therrien, Grandmother Marion Wood and Uncle Bradly Hellman.
