Obituary: Dr. Guy Harold Waldo Jr

October 13, 1925 – January 27, 2021

Dr. Guy Harold Waldo Jr., 95, of Bedford, died at the IU Health Bedford Hospital on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.

Born October 13, 1925, in Delaware County, he was the son of Guy Harold Waldo Sr. and Mary (Collins) Waldo. He married Judy (Ingle) Brown on June 11, 1989, and she survives, along with sons, Dr. G. Bruce Waldo (Laura Webb Waldo), Dr. Brian (Dr. Julie) Waldo, and Dr. Chris (Laura) Waldo,
stepdaughter, Lisa (Dr. Sandore) Zehr, stepson Barrie Brown, 12
grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his three brothers, Gene, Howard, and Bill.

Guy served as a US Navy corpsman aboard the USS Kidd during WWII.
This service inspired him to attend medical school and he practiced
medicine for many years in Bedford.

In 1958, he and a small group of colleagues founded the Edgewood Clinic, which later merged with the Bedford Medical Center, and is now IU Health Bedford Hospital.

Guy, a true romantic, enjoyed spinning his beloved wife Judy around on the dance floor. Renowned for his steak-grilling prowess, he found great enjoyment in conversations with family and friends around the grill. He was inquisitive by nature and a lifelong learner, always asking questions and seeking to understand. He enjoyed sharing his love for fishing and boating with his family and friends at their Bokeelia, FL condominium. His gentle demeanor and kind, loving heart were qualities that endeared him to all. Guy was also an avid fan of the IU Hoosiers and Indianapolis Colts and, while watching games, those around him would get a glimpse of his competitive nature. Guy’s remarkable presence will be missed by all.

Private services will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2021, at the Cresthaven Funeral Home with Reverend Jon Lineback officiating. Entombment will follow in Cresthaven Memory Gardens.

Cresthaven Funeral Home is entrusted with his care.
