Woodruff Medley Obituary
Woodruff H. Medley
1923 ~ 2013
Woodruff H. Medley, beloved brother and uncle, died October 3, 2013.
He was born October 24, 1923 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the son of Morgan and Clara Engel. He was a very active, loving boy.
Woody joined the Navy at the age of 17 and was trained as a medic. He was promoted many times during his career, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer. He was a part of history, serving in three wars: World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.
He retired and settled in El Cajon, working for the Post Office. After the death of his wife, Eleanor, he returned to Utah, living with his brother Robert. His family will be forever grateful that we had this time with him. He had a great sense of humor and loved to tease everyone, especially his nieces and nephews. He was a loving and generous man. He loved all animals, especially cats, and was known to feed many strays.
He leaves behind his brother Robert, and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his wife Eleanor, parents Morgan and Clara, sister LaRue, brothers Louis and Clifford, sister-in-law Ruth, and nephew Robert.
Graveside memorial services will be held Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013 at 11:00 am at Mountain View Memorial Estates. Friends and family are all welcome.
He will be missed.
