Leading the third generation of the Wood family in the Kirkwood - Webster area, Kevin A. Wood brings a level of knowledge and understanding to the Real Estate market that you would expect from a good neighbor. This is only because Kevin and his family have quite literally been your neighbor and friend for decades running. The Wood family first put down roots in St. Louis in 1925 when Floyd E. Wood Sr. Purchased a storefront in Old Orchard, Webster Groves that would become the original Wood Rexall Drug Store. This location would flourish and serve the Webster Groves community for another 40 years. During this time, War with Japan in the Pacific broke out, calling away Floyd E. Wood, Jr.

Floyd E Wood Jr., now the patriarch of his own family, had eight children of his own that would all at some point help run the Wood Rexall and serve their community as the previous generations had before them. One daughter, Barbara A. Wood, would go as far as to graduate from the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and serve as the pharmacist at Wood Rexall, cementing the Wood family as the premier source of experience in the matter. Barbara would then go on to become a State of Missouri Pharmacy Inspector.
