Gaynor Woodrow (Woody) Bean passed away in his home on Monday, Aug. 23, 2010 at the age of 94.

Born May 8, 1916 in Buchanan, W.Va. to Clark and Flora (Jenks) Bean, he was the youngest of five siblings. He spent two years in college before entering the US Air Force to serve in WWII. On July 23, 1945, in Columbus, Ohio, he married K. Louise Marino, who survives in Fallbrook. They had two children, Pamela (Dennis) Weaver and James, deceased. Woody also had two grandchildren, Brock Weaver of Elkhart, Ind. and Jared (Kate) Weaver of Chicago, Ill., and two great-grandchildren, Jordan and Cole Weaver of Elkhart.

He was an auto mechanic in Elkhart for more than 30 years before moving to Point Loma, Calif., where he owned his own garage until his retirement in Fallbrook 28 years ago. Woody enjoyed airplanes, cars, and working outside in his grove. The family will hold a memorial service at a later date. Donations may be made in Woody’s name to Elizabeth Hospice.
