Carl Warren Hood

February 14, 1939 — January 9, 2021

Funeral services for Carl Warren Hood will be held 11:00 AM, Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at the Crossway First Baptist Church in Sulphur, with Pastor Bill Leveridge officiating. Interment will follow at the Oaklawn Cemetery in Sulphur.

Carl was born February 14, 1939 in Sulphur to the late Grady and Hattie (Crane) Hood. He died Saturday, January 9, 2021 in Sulphur, at the age of 81. Carl and the former Ms. Rubylee Storts were married on April 18, 1959. From this union was born one daughter, Sherri.

Carl was a lifelong resident of Sulphur, graduating from Sulphur High School, Class of 1957. Carl spent 20 years working for OTASCO in Sulphur, prior to working on the Roos Ranch. The last 20+ years of his life, Carl worked for the Runyan family at the 3C Cattle Feeder Company in Mill Creek. According to Carl, he “ran the place.” He was very active throughout the company, assisting in both manufacturing and sales. Carl often reminded everyone, that he was there when “the first feeder was built under that shade tree in front of the old shop.”

Carl was quite the talker. He never met a stranger and enjoyed telling old stories, no matter how many times you had heard them. In younger years he enjoyed riding horses and roping. In his spare time, he enjoyed eating at the Boomerang Diner and having coffee at Poor Girls Café in Sulphur; as well as an occasional trip to the local casino, of course just to visit with his friends.

Survivors include three grandchildren, Tiffany Sands of Sulphur, Patience Dudley & husband Josh of Davis and Charles “Buster” Wright of Sulphur; six great-grandchildren, Blakelee & Tenlee Sands, Hadie & Rhett Dudley and Shaylee & Cash Wright; son-in-law, Charlie Wright; dear friend, Jackie Henry; as well as numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of close friends, whom he considered to be family.

In addition to his parents, Carl was preceded in death by his daughter, Sherri (Hood) Wright on July 2, 2019; and his five siblings, Henry Hood, Rosie McKinley, Mary Davis, Betty Mann and Bo Hood.

Serving as pallbearers will be Bear Runyan, Casey Runyan, Bradley Vandagriff, Joe Don Runyan, Kent McKinley and Wendell Shackelford.
