Obituary: Senn, Bruce M.

Age 61

SENN, Bruce M. June 23, 1954-July 5, 2015 Bruce was born on June 23, 1954 in Whittier, California to Alvin and Shelley (Stylianos) Senn.

Bruce passed away at home after a brief, brave battle against cancer with his wife of 28 years, Judy Erpenbach-Senn by his side.

His life was full of love and devotion to his family and friends.

His greatest love was Judy, followed by a love for Harleys and Corvettes.

Bruce began his career at the Darigold Spokane plant in 1974.

In 1997, Bruce moved to the Issaquah plant, eventually becoming assistant manager.

Bruce returned to the Spokane plant in 2008 to accept the position of plant manager.

In his many roles, he was always a mentor and never asked anyone to do something without having done it himself.

The Darigold family was a significant part of his life.

Thanks to Darigold, he had the opportunity to see and do it all over the past 41 years.

Bruce will be forever missed by his beloved wife Judy, family, and friends.

Bruce was preceded in death by father Alvin.

He is survived by father-in-law, Raymond Erpenbach and wife Marilyn; brothers and sisters-in-law, Mike and Cheri Erpenbach, Sandra Erpenbach and husband Trevor Thies, Tom and Lori Erpenbach, Cheryl and Randy Hastings.

His mother, Shelley Senn; sisters, Shelleen and Linda; brother, Christopher; and many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

Memorial contributions may be made to Second Harvest Food Bank.

A funeral service will be held at St. Thomas More Parish, 505 W. St. Thomas More Way, Spokane, WA, Saturday, July 11th at 11:00 A.M. followed by committal at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery.
