Alan Wood was 50 years old at the time of his untimely death and was known to his family and friends as a contented, laid back, easy going and gentle man who worked hard and enjoyed the simple things in life.
Alan’s social life centered around visiting The Willoughby Arms public house in nearby Little Bytham, where he could often be found sitting at the bar with a pint and a packet of peanuts, reading a newspaper and chatting to his friends.
He loved photography and took wedding pictures for some of his friends, although he preferred the "old fashioned" cameras to the latest digital technology. His other passion was motorbikes, his favourite being a black Triumph Speed Triple which he had for several years.
Alan had worked at Sainsbury’s in Bourne since 2006 and was extremely well-liked there and he enjoyed the camaraderie of the night shift.
Alan was married to Joanne Wood for 17 years and although they separated in 2003, they remained on good terms. His mother, Maureen, still lives in Stamford, along with his sister, Janice. His other sister Sylvia, lives in France.
He had no criminal history and had no known enemies.
