PENDLETON — Elwood “Woody” Clark lived life at full-throttle.

Clark, the founder of Woodpecker Truck & Equipment in Pendleton, died June 1 just 40 days shy of his 100th birthday. His truck sales and repair business outgrew its first location near the family home on Highway 11 and expanded in 1968 onto 40 acres west of Pendleton along Interstate 84. Clark’s trucks ended up in far-flung locations, with 21 of them going to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm.
