Orin Brent Woodbury Burley, Idaho. Heaven gained an amazing angel Friday August 31, 2018. Surrounded by his family, our husband, dad, and grandpa left this earthly life to be greeted by his family members in heaven, that had been waiting anxiously for his arrival. Dad passed away at the Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah after valiantly fighting for weeks with many health problems. Dad was born on August 9, 1947 to his goodly parents, Leland and Myrlene Snow Woodbury. He was the eighth of nine children. Dad hit the floor running and never slowed down. His love for speed was apparent in all he did. With his choice of cars, motorcycles, 4-Wheelers and snowmobiles, it was obvious speed was a very important factor. There have been hundreds of people thrown off the tube being pulled behind the boat by dad and his fast speed and crazy driving. Dad had a deep love of the land and knew very early in his life that he wanted to be a farmer when he grew up. farming came natural to him and he worked hard on the farm and grew beautiful crops. He graduated from Burley High School in 1965 and very soon after met the love of his life Linda Kay Bryan. Dad and Mom were married on October 29, 1966 in Burley, Idaho. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Idaho Falls Temple on June 16, 1972. After their marriage, they moved to Raft River and Dad worked with his brother Lyle farming. About a year and a half later they moved to the View area where they built their farming legacy of 40 years. They were blessed with five beautiful children: Nikki, Jason, Heath, Lacey, and Angie. In 2006 Dad sold the farm and in 2007 he bought Yakety Yak and Play-n-Trade the Latter of which he owned and operated up to his passing. Dad was an outstanding bishop as he served in the View 2nd Ward from 1989-1994. He had a very special place for the youth and made a lasting impression on the youth of the ward. He was also very good with people and Keeping View 2nd a strong ward family. Dad was very giving and no one ever left his door empty handed. He lived to serve and he served unconditionally. Dad was patient, gentle and kind. He was a friend to everyone and made a lasting impression on many. Our dad was the best husband, dad and grandpa anyone could ask for and he was our family's hero. Even though our hearts are broken, and our dad will be missed more than words can say, we Know he is at peace and in a better place. As dad said "when the going gets tough, the tough get going" and we will always honor him and his legacy he left behind.

From: Gary Farwell
I was saddened to learn that my old high school buddy died. It picked me up a bit to read this obituary about his love of speed. indeed he did, i recall riding in a brand new 63/63 Chev impala his parents just bought wishing for a cop to slow him down on the highway from burley to declo. we all survived somehow on that ride and others we engaged in.
looking back, it is amazing that we all lived to become grandparents. Orin was the most friendly OPTIMISTIC person to be around. I would see him from time to time after high school. The last time was at a horse sale in spanish Fork, Utah in 1982. He was with his long time friend Alan Smith; who unfortunately for us has also passed. I recall nothing but good about Orin Woodbury. the world would be a far better place with more people like him. This OBITUARY nailed it.

Dear Linda and family, it was with great sadness that I learned of Hucks passing from my sister. I'm not Sure that you remember me, but Huck and I were good friends during our High School years even though I lived on the other side of the river. That didn't bother him and we always had good natured rivaleries. I went off to the Navy so we lost contact with each other thru the years. You may remember that we visited with you one evening in Janurary of 1972, on our way to the east coast from Hawaii. I stayed in the Navy to retirement and then came to Key west, Fl. I have since retired again from the water utility here. But during all those years I have always reflected on my youth as a very happy time and most Especially while in the company if Orin. my parents both liked him very much as I remember and always felt comfortable when I Told them that I was going out with Huck. I want you and your family to know that I have the utmost respect For Orin a will always remember our times together as those that I cherish very much. I am truely sorry for your loss and may God bless You and your family during this stressful time.
From: Dean and Linda Strom
