He had also worked for Seppala & Aho Construction Co. and had retired from the maintenance department at Franklin Pierce College.Mr. Hood had an avid interest in antique cars and was a member of the Monadnock Oldies Car Club. For 35 years he was trailmaster of the Monadnock Sno-Moles, and also was an honorary member of the club. He was a contributor to the Rindge Historical Society’s museum.
