William Woodruff Memorial Fund

Will Woodruff was a comedian and a poker dealer. He was also a son, uncle, brother and friend to many. On November 22, 2016 Will had a very serious surgery to remove an Acoustic Neuroma benign tumor on his brain. The surgery was supposed to be 9 hours and it ended up being 17 hours. Will made it through the grueling procedure and was healing well. He was up and joking, walking around and living life the best he could for someone who was recovering from a major surgery. Will was actually doing better than the doctors had expected. His future looked bright.

December 6th, 2016 started as a normal day. Chit-chat with roommates, a little laundry and a shower. Will collapsed in the shower and an ambulance was called. Will passed away right as he arrived at the hospital of a pulmonary embolism. William Sean Woodruff was 36 years old.

Will did not have life insurance. This campaign is set up to help with cremation and funeral services. Anything left over will be put towards a memoriam in his name. It will be grand and it will be rad, just like Will!

So please, if you can donate it would be greatly appreciated. Let's all show Will how much we loved him and how we want to keep his memory alive.

To quote him "Good day sir! ....................I Said GOOD DAY!"

Will's Celebration of Life will be:
Sunday, December 18th at 1pm
The Capital City Theater
210 Liberty St SE #150, Salem, OR 97301
Please come with your best Will Puns. We'll all get through this together.
