Al is survived by his wife Virginia "Ginny" Cody of Bridgewater, brother James Wood of Randolph, sister Barbara Wood of Braintree, son Gary Wood and wife Marianne of Weymouth, daughter Sheryl Connors of Scituate, son Daniel Wood and wife Maryellen of Sanbornton, NH, daughter Donna Connors and husband Patrick of Braintree and daughter Heather Hogan of Lady Lake, FL. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Al grew up in East Braintree and lived there for most of his life. He joined the Marines at the age of eighteen and served for six years. He returned to Braintree, working as a plumber for Sullivan Plumbing and Heating and then as a master plumber for Emerson College. During his retirement years he lived in The Villages, Florida and most recently in Bridgewater, MA.

Al was a Past Master of Delta Masonic Lodge, Braintree and served as District Deputy Grand Master for the 26th Masonic District. He was very active with the lodge, creating the Brother David Thayer Blunt Scholarship Fund and a dad advisor for the Wompatuck Chapter Order of DeMolay
Al loved sports and was on the local softball and flag football teams for many years. He loved playing the game of golf and thoroughly enjoyed a good game of horseshoes to which he will always be the reigning champion. He also coached Pop Warner football. He was an avid boater and a member of the Town River Yacht Club. Al also loved watching his Patriots and Red Sox win superbowls and world series with his brother Jim.
Al was the center of his family's lives. He was always quick to crack a joke and make you smile and would go out of his way to help you without asking. He also enjoyed keeping up with the on goings of everyone.

Donations in memory of Al may be made to the Blunt Scholarship Fund at 8 Royal Lake Drive Unit #4, Braintree, MA 02184.
