Kenneth "Bruce" Shaull

Kenneth "Bruce" Shaull, 78, of Woodland, CA, passed away on February 16, 2024, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.

Bruce was born on November 5, 1945, to Verl and Georgia Shaull in Cushing, Oklahoma. In 1950, the Shaull family relocated to Oregon.

Bruce graduated from Gresham High School in 1963, he then went on to study business administration and technology at Oregon State University, graduating in 1967.

In 1958, while attending 4-H summer camp, he met Susan Davis, on the steps of the Forestry building at Oregon State University in Corvallis. They married in January of 1967 and relocated to Hood River where they went on to have two children, Jyll and Kenneth Gregory.

Bruce started his career at Diamond Fruit Company but soon transitioned to what would become his long-term, final employment with United Telephone Company and retired in beautiful Camp Sherman in 2000.

Bruce developed a love of music, dance, and sports at an early age. These loves became entwined in all things associated with Bruce.

His musical and dance passion become public with the Emery Clay Dancers in grade school, his Rhythm Masters band in high school, playing in the 1965 Rose Bowl with the Oregon State University marching band, his children's junior high and high school games and eventually in retirement with the Cascade Horizon Band in Bend.

Bruce's commitment to volunteerism was evident by his investment of time and energy given to community and local school athletic programs. Those that knew him may remember his solo trumpet bouts of the HRV fight song, or involving the crowd by leading cheers at various events. He was also a passionate community member during his life with organizations such as, the Jaycees, Little League, Babe Ruth, Hood River swim team, and The Lyon's Follies. During his retirement years Bruce continued his volunteer efforts as a math tutor, restoring the Camp Sherman community hall, a greeter at the Chapel of the Pines, and found great joy in serving as a volunteer fireman in Camp Sherman.

Bruce was predeceased by his father, Verl, mother, Georgia, and sister Betty.

He is survived by wife, Susan; daughter, Jyll (husband Bill); son, Kenneth Greg (wife Lisa); grandchildren: Kenneth Peter (wife Hannah), Alina, Wyatt, Valkyrie, Charlie; great-grandchildren: Kenneth Finn and Miles; brother Val Shaull (wife Linda).

The Celebration of life for Bruce will be held at the Camp Sherman Community Hall on June 29, 2024, at
