Chief Woody Downing has Passed Away!

Update Sunday June 6, 2021 1600

With much regret Chief Woody Downing passed away Friday afternoon 2:00pm  June 4, 2021 from a heart attack at Alvarado Hospital, La Mesa, California. There will be no public service/funeral in San Diego. His family have arranged an internment in the family crypt in Napa, Ca with family only. The family will not be taking calls/emails. 

If you would like to send condolences please send them to woodys57@goodoleboyssandiego.com. I will be capturing any condolences and passing them direct to the family. CDR Mike Brattland, USN (Ret.) mgbrattland@gerlecreek.com  619 454-0496

I will be taking over www.goodoleboysscandiego.com from the family and in the near future will work with some of the local car clubs to sort out Woody's weekly calendar so that it survives. I will also look at some adjustments on the WoodyBay email list so that current users can continue to post their For Sale items....give me a little time to sort these things out. Once a reasonable period has passed, I will disable Woody's email address above but for now it will work and yours truly will be reading and answering as necessary.

Additionally I will work with other members of the Good Ole Boys San Diego to see if we can find a convenient place, event and time to pay respects to our passed friend Woody Downing. More to follow when I have it. 

FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS CHIEF DOWNING. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE WOODY. WE ALL LOVE YOU!
