ENEY, Harry E. III, better known as "Woody," died January 16, 2017 at ManorCare Imperial, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. He is survived by his wife, Sharon; daughter, Kim Murray; and grandchildren, Remy and Chandler. Woody was an actor and playwright who had his beginnings in Richmond, Va. He went on to perform on stage, TV and film in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Houston and many other theaters across the country. Highlights of his many TV performances were Mork & Mindy, Diff'rent Strokes, Happy Days, Taxi, Family Ties and Little House on the Prairie. He appeared in the movies, Three Fugitives, Jagged Edge, Firefox and Homeward Bound. As a stage actor, he studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, and went on to perform with the Seattle Repertory Company, Alley Theatre Company in Houston, and Goodman Theatre in Chicago, among others. After retiring from the stage, he began to write plays, and won Best Original Script for his play, "Call Me Henry," at the Jewel Box Theatre in Oklahoma City; he also had "Forty Acres and a POW" done at Sycamore Rouge Theatre in Petersburg. Woody loved to entertain and make people laugh, and those who knew him are left with many happy memories. There will be no funeral or memorial service; the family will have a private interment at Quantico National Cemetery. You may honor him by donating to The American Parkinson's Disease Association. Sharon would like to thank the nurses, aides and staff at Manor Care Imperial for their kindness and loving care.
