Roger Lewis Brundridge


Roger Lewis Brundridge peacefully passed away while surrounded by his loved ones on June 22, 2018. He was born in Flats, Missouri, to Aubrey “Pete” Brundridge and Vera Martin Brundridge on July 17, 1934. When Roger was young, his family moved to Sisters, Oregon, and later settled in White Swan where he graduated from high school. In 1963, he moved to Goldendale where he spent most of his remaining years.

He was a veteran of the United States Army and served from 1957 to 1963. After his service, he went to work in the lumber industry. Roger and his father “Pete” designed and rebuilt the original Layman Mill in 1963, which became Boise Cascade where he worked until his retirement.

Throughout his lifetime, Roger enjoyed many things, including rodeoing and breaking horses. He was also an artistic creator and designer. He has designed and built many things including life-size horse statues and other art from horseshoes, leather working and saddle making, life-size wooden roping horses, bird houses and doll houses and almost anything else someone may need. Roger made friends wherever he was and had many long-lasting friendships. He will be missed by many.

His surviving family includes his son, Scott Brundridge; daughter Tamela (Tammy) Henne; son Mylie Brundridge; step-son Danny Stewart; step-daughters Gloria Rose and Teresa Johnson; several grandchildren and one great grandchild. He was preceded in death by his parents, Pete and Vera Brundridge; his wife Margaret Brundridge; and his only sister, Norma Nichols.

Please join family and friends in a “Celebration of Life” service for Roger on Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018 at the American Legion, Goldendale at 1 p.m.
