Obituary: Walling, Bruce Leo


WALLING, Bruce Leo
(Age 54)

Our beloved father, son, brother, and friend left us too soon on Thursday, February 18, 2016.

He reunited with his father, Tom L.R.

Walling, Sr., and his late wife Katy.

He is survived by his mother, Gisela Walling; his five brothers: Rolf, Tom Jr., John, Jim, Jerry Walling; his two daughters: Mindy Holland and Tiffany Walling; and his two grandchildren, all of Spokane, WA.
Bruce was born in Frankfurt, Germany.

He grew up an extremely hardworking man.

He worked as a Logger and a Firefighter for the Colville National Forest Service.

Bruce was an adventurous, strong man who loved his family, loved to hunt, fish, camp, and anything to do with “The Great Outdoors”, which was one of his favorite movies.

The best memories we have is the whole family together camping at our properties.
He was the life of our family and brought us all together and closer even after his passing.

He is greatly missed, but now free.

We love you Bruno!
