Woodrow Gail “Woody” Vahlberg

November 11, 1918 ~ March 26, 2014

Woodrow Gail “Woody” Vahlberg was born on Veteran’s Day, 1918. He died at age 95, in Wenatchee, WA, on March 26, 2014. Woody was born and raised in Sweet, ID, and graduated from Emmett High School in 1938. In 1980, Woody married the love of his life, Violet Vahlberg, and they were married for 33 wonderful years. Not a day went by, that Woody would tell everyone how beautiful she was and how much he loved her. Woody’s career was diverse, ranging from herding turkeys, a chicken farmer, forest service fire lookout, building highways in Oregon, to working as a machinist for the Bremerton Shipyard, and then a 21 year career with Boeing as a machinist from 1960 to 1981. In retirement, Woody enjoyed RV traveling with Violet, making additions to their home, and discussing politics.

Woody survived his three siblings, Eve Vurich, Ronnie Vahlberg and Barry Vahlberg. Woody is survived by his loving wife, Violet; and he was a very loving single father to five children, Vicky Jenson, Eve Janean Ikeda, Rick Vahlberg, Theresa Vahlberg (deceased), and Randy Vahlberg; and, four stepchildren, Curtis Willard Jr., Janet Peters, Bruce Willard and Debbie Willard. Woody and Violet were blessed with 12 grandchildren, Rachal, Sharie, Christopher Craig, Jared, Janean, Fallon, Benita, Cecilia, Brittany, Ryan, Ivan and Sarah; and 15 great-grandchildren, Caytlynn, Ta’Mia, Damajeo, Aurelia, Mark Jr., Porter, Sawyer, Kenny Jr., Keshawn, Cariah, Jacob and Madelynn, including three great-grandbabies in the oven.

A Celebration of Life for Woody will be held on Friday, April 4, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. at the Wenatchee First Assembly of God Church.
