Jeffrey Scott Atwood, 67, of Nashville, passed away on Sunday, July 10, 2022, at University Hospital in Indianapolis after a brief illness. Jeff was born July 27, 1954, in Bloomington and was the son of the late John Thomas “Tom” and Barbara M. (Brinegar) Atwood.
Jeff was a 1972 graduate of Bloomington High School where he played on the State Championship football team. Jeff then went on to graduate from Vincennes University and began a 39-year career with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources where he served first Johnson County and then 35 years in Brown County as a Conservation Officer. Jeff loved being a Conservation Officer and it was evident in his work and his dedication in being a provider for everyone he came in contact with, especially his family. Jeff was a farmer and loved spending time at his two farms, and enjoyed planting, harvesting, bush hogging and taking care of his feeder pigs. He enjoyed hunting turkey, deer, and trapping beaver and at the same time protecting them. He was a history buff and enjoyed reading and loved all IU athletic events. The love of Jeff’s life was his family, especially his daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchild.
Jeff is survived by his loving wife, Pamela Atwood; daughters, Tiffany L. Jackson and Tabitha K. (Jonathan) Harwell; grandchildren, Jocelyn Bock and Grayson Harwell; great grandchild, Journey Bock; brother, Tracy Atwood; and several nieces and nephews.
