After a nearly five-month battle with cancer, George O. Wood, the former general superintendent of the Assemblies of God, died on Wednesday.
He was 80 years old.
Wood’s death was announced by the General Council of the Assemblies of God. He developed esophageal cancer, which he tried to treat at Siteman Care Center in St. Louis using chemotherapy and clinical trial medication treatments. His cancer, on the other hand, had progressed to his liver and spine.
The former leader of the denomination’s condition deteriorated this week after contracting non-COVID pneumonia. When he died, he was surrounded by his family.
According to AG News, Wood was the fourth-longest-serving general superintendent of the 107-year-old Missouri-based United States Assemblies of God.
In 2017, Wood resigned from his position.
