Spencer Wood, a longtime Newport Beach resident and graduate of Newport Harbor High School, died in an accident last week near San Luis Obispo. He was 22.
Wood, who graduated from Newport Harbor in 2002, was walking home from a concert at about 2 a.m. on Saturday when he fell into a ravine and hit his head. A history major at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Wood planned to graduate in December and had been working at a law firm in preparation for law school.
Before Newport Harbor High, Wood had attended Newport Elementary School and Ensign Intermediate School, being elected class president in both the sixth and 10th grades. During his high school years, he had worked at Gallo's Italian Deli and Promelis Westcliff Market in Newport Beach.
