Bruce Hunter Aldrich
Born: 12/18/1951, Tacoma, Washington
He was born December 18, 1951 in Tacoma, Washington to Harry & Jane Aldrich, the first of three sons. The family moved to Springfield, Massachusetts, where as a child he played in the abundant meadows and woods, building forts with his friends.
When the family moved to the L.A. area, they would go to Zuma Beach on the weekends, and there he discovered his love of the ocean and his lifelong passion for surfing. He was blessed to be able to surf in Baja during the last 12 years of this life.
He also loved music and studied and played guitar wherever he lived.
His love of building forts led him into the building trade; and his considerable artistic abilities led him to a private art school in Hollywood, where he not only learned to paint, but met the love of his life, Cynthia, who was teaching there. They were married a year and a half later in 1981.
Bruce did his first major house remodel on the home they bought in Kirkland, Washington, turning a decrepit old farmhouse into a beautiful home.
Bruce and Cynthia moved to Moab in 1992, settling in Castle Valley. It was here that he was able to full express his artistry in the beautiful homes that he designed and built.
He is already greatly missed. A celebration of Bruce's life will be held Sunday October 19, 2014 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm with a time of sharing at 3:00 pm at 388 Castle Creek Lane in Castle Valley there will be arrows pointing the way but if you need directions call 259-4838.
