Bruhn, Clifford Clay – Obituary

Clifford Clay Bruhn, 36, of Baker City, died July 3, 2001, near Halfway.

His graveside service will be Monday, July 9, at 10 a.m. at Pine Haven Cemetery in Halfway. The Rev. Bill Shields of the Pine Valley Presbyterian Church will officiate.

Mr. Bruhn was born on Aug. 30, 1964, in Kailua, Hawaii, to George and Clintina Cross Bruhn. He was raised and educated in Halfway. Following high school, he joined the U.S. Army and served for two years. During his life he had five children, whom he loved to spend time with, cared about and loved to talk about. He kept their pictures in his wallet and was quick to show you how much they had grown.

Mr. Bruhn enjoyed hunting morel mushrooms, camping and fishing.

During this last year, he had lived in Baker City, returning on occasion to visit friends in Halfway. He was one of those people who would give you the shirt off of his back, if he had it to give. He had a great smile, a good heart and will be missed very much by all who knew and loved him.

Mr. Bruhn is survived by his children: Athena, Corey, Clarissa, Christian and Catlyn; his parents, George and Tina Bruhn, his brother, George Bruhn, and sister, Jenny Steele, all of Baker City; sister and brother-in-law, Marla and Casey Anderson of Halfway; nieces, Tiffany and Samantha Steele, and Chastity Anderson; a nephew, Scott Anderson; and several aunts and uncles.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents.

Donations in Mr. Bruhn’s memory may be made to the charity of one’s choice, in care of Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, Ore., 97834.
