Obituary for Bruce L. Graves

Lifelong Sheridan resident, Bruce Graves, passed away July 28 at home with his family around him. He was 85.
Graves was a well-known local logger, road builder, and friend to many. He was the son of LeRoy Graves and Anita Martin. Bruce was born on Red Prairie Road near Sheridan on one of the sharp corners, January 2, 1934. Bruce was greatly involved with the local Sheridan Museum. He was interested in the local history as his family was one of the four original land claim owners now comprising today’s town of Sheridan.
Bruce is survived by his wife Betty, of 65 years, and three children -- Hollis and Rick Nelson of Corvallis, Randon and the late Connie Graves of Sheridan, and Royce and Mary Graves of Sheridan, and his brother, Jim Graves of Tillamook. He has five grandchildren – Keri and Mario Tripiano of San Francisco, Alison and Randy Ocampo of Corvallis, Kevin Graves of Sheridan, Ashley Graves of Willamina, and Brandon Nelson of Bend. He has three great-grandchildren – Teagan and Annemieke Ocampo, and Aubrey Graves.
Any remembrances are to be made as donations to the Sheridan Museum of History, PO Box 652, Sheridan, Oregon 97378.
