Honor Sonny Woodruff | Passages

LITTLE BOSTON — Honor Sonny Woodruff passed away on March 21 at Seattle Children's Hospital in Seattle. He was 1.

He was born on April 12, 2012.

Honor was a remarkable boy who brought joy to everyone he met. He had a gentleness about him that drew people near. Those who know him will say he had a way of brightening almost any situation by merely being present. He was intelligent, outgoing and had the biggest beautiful eyes. Those eyes have been closed eternal, those quick feet no longer splash through puddles, however, his spirit will forever fly with the eagles and his memories will live always within our hearts. Rest in peace, Honor.

He is survived by his father, John DeCoteau; mother, Brandy Woodruff; great-grandparents, Rose Purser and Rude Purser; grandparents, Millie DeCoteau, George Sparks and Marcy Sparks. He also leaves behind his siblings: Shawn, John Stephen, Derryck, Taylor and Talon DeCoteau, Jonelle DeCoteau-Grady, Sasheen DeCoteau, Jaleena Woodruff, Lauren Moon, Cheyenne DeCoteau and Jasmine DeCoteau.

Memorial service was on April 3, 1 p.m. at the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe Gym in Little Boston.
